my take on spring decor

Hope your weekend has been great! Mine was busy and full of cranky kid. Until now. This afternoon has been blissful. Sawyer has been asleep for over 3 hours and still going. I have been able to do a little sewing, a little cleaning (very little), and I was able to finish up this to share with you. 


This is the cross stitch piece I have been mentioning in previous posts. I finished it Friday night, and was able to frame it and pretty it up today. 

I may or may not have mentioned that I don't do great with decorating my house for the holidays. Probably because that is too much work, but also because I tend to dislike a lot of the themed stuff you find in stores. (Christmas is the exception. It looks like Hobby Lobby exploded in my house come December.)

So anyway, I made this to satisfy my spring decorating urge. It's springy what with a baby deer and all. And then there is flowers, which bloom in spring. And orange. Yeah.


pattern: from this book
frame: Hobby Lobby
paint: delta Orange Pop
yo-yo flowers: made by me
yellow flower: Jo-Ann

  1. That is very, very sweet. I used to do a lot of cross-stitch but don't have the eyes, hands or enthusiasm for that particular crafty outlet anymore. I'm glad that is continuing on. It's so lovely.

  19. Cuando tenia 6 años me enseñaron a hacer punto de cruz y en el primer trabajo que hice con el muestrario de puntos bordé este precioso "bambi". Han venido a mi mente unos hermosos recuerdos gracias tu blog.

    When tape-worm 6 years taught me to do cross stitch and in the first work that I did with the sample of points I embroidered this precious "bambi". A few beautiful recollections have come to my mind thank you your blog.
