April TUSAL and Hermitting

Finally, some April showers!  We have the flowers, but really did need the rain.  My glass has been Fairy filled, too bad you can't see the "glitter" in there.

For my IHSW, I wish I could have spent more time on her - but she's coming along and I can't wait to add the beads at the end!    
 
 I didn't get to hermit as much as I would have liked... DH and the gmen went camping for the weekend and my nieces came over on Saturday afternoon to spend the night with Nathan and I.  Here are the four of them playing Trouble - good game for them!


So I got to see my sister-in-law on Sunday when she and my brother picked up the girls.  She was finally able to see the mermaids I made her and take them home, she loved them!  You can see why I made them all blondes - must be nice to have that natural look!

I love your TUSAL glass. So unique! Trick or Treat Fairy is looking great! Beautiful picture of your SIL and nieces. No wonder you change all the mermaids to blondes :)

Hugs,
Veronica.

Hello

I love your Halloween Fairy, she's looking beautiful.
Your Mermaids finish is so sweet and I see why you made them blonde. All that lovely natural blonde hair - very jealous!

Beautiful Sal jar! I love your fairy and the mermaids are so pretty. It suits all those blondes very well. Too bad you didn't get to do as much stitching as you would have liked, but I guess it has been a wonderful weekend anyway!

Love your fairy...I'm tempted to stitch her myself! Your nieces are adorable, and I imagine they love being portrayed as mermaids in your cross stitch!! Thanks for the pep talk today...Can't wait til next week when we can stitch together again! *hugs*
