The first of the Double Flips is now done (except for the buttons). This is really a fun one and much easier to stitch on the 32 count linen than the Christmas one on the opalescent fabric. I don't think I will frame this one but make it into a wall hanging if I can find the perfect fabric to back it.
Guess you could call this week "Lizzie Kate Week" LOL. I just love this months stamp and have some really fun projects almost ready for the May Seasonal Shelf. Only one more stamp to do for June and I'll have them all finished.
With the temps in the low to mid 90's it was almost more like Summer than Spring but still pleasant enough to be out and about. On Thursday afternoon Tracy got restless and wanted to know if I needed to go anywhere. I was not sure since I knew we were going out the next day for his doctor's appointment so I said I really didn't need to go anywhere. He then suggested we go ahead and go to Michael's to get the stiff I needed for the Seasonal Shelf and then have a early dinner. Who could refuse that, not me. I think we must have spent a hour and a half in Michael's with him wanting to go up and down all the aisles (what a shopper he is). We found some really neat stuff and had a really fun time.
Friday we had to be up early for his check up appointment. It was a little cooler but still a beautiful day. Being that we live in a small apartment with no yard we both miss planting and have flowers so we settle for looking at all the lovely landscaping at the resorts on the strip. Since the spring flowers are now in full bloom off to the strip we went. After a wonderful lunch at Outback we started walking to to Belliago and taking pictures along the way. You can see them in my webshots album (link in sidebar). The pictures below are a few from the conservatory at the Belliago. It was not as pretty as some of the displays but still nice. It was divided up into different types of gardens, French, Japanese, English and Italian with the Butterfly habitat in a potting shed.
This is the French garden and water is flowing on the outside of the ball
This is the butterfly habitat. It is a glass potting shed and is full of butterflies.
Now that Tracy's days off are over I can again rest and sit and stitch. I have started my second stitched piece for the seasonal shelf and hope to have it finished tomorrow so I can get back to "Tea and Stitches" and maybe even put some stitches in "Celtic Spring". I also have had my arm twisted to teach a online Hardanger class for my ILCS Yahoo group so will start looking into charts and instructions for that. I haven't done much Hardanger in the past few years so need to brush up on it.
Until Next Time....Have a good week with lots of good stitching time.
