Hippity Hop!

Ok so last night I posted a picture of a Christmas ornament.  Now, I know it's a bit early to be thinking about Christmas, since we just got rid of all that daggone snow, but I couldn't resist posting those two pictures.  That ornament is too cute, if I do say so myself :-)

I thought I would redeem myself this morning by posting a little Easter-y small that I finished up last night.  Between moving and doing Katie's baby gifts, I didn't have much spare time, but I wanted to do a little something that I could finish and bring into work to brighten up those battleship grey walls I'm surrounded by every day.

This is the Lizzie Kate April Flip It! I stitched it in the WDW she calls for in the graph.  I chose a little piece of gingham linen I had, which I believe is either 28 or 32 count.  I'm not quite sure which, and I forgot to count before I started - it was a scrap and I'm not quite sure where the packaging got to.  I love the adorable little umbrella charm that goes in the top square with the Easter bonnet :-)  So cute!

I apologize for the shadow in the bottom right-hand corner...I'm not quite sure where that came from.  Must be a ghost. Wait...ghosts can't make shadows...anyway...

The move is going slow but steady.  This past weekend, my family helped me paint the living room and dining room, with the exception of the woodwork.  It looks fabulous, and I can't thank my family enough for all their help.  My sister and I will be at my house on Friday to paint the den (which is just off the living room), and my furniture is getting moved on Sunday!  I'm so excited to finally be living in just one place, and in my own house no less!!  Yay!!!

Now, if someone could just tell this little bugger that being INSIDE the box does not help with the packing, no matter what she thinks...

Chilling on the closet shelf isn't much help, either...but she sure thinks it is...

She must think she's getting some of the tuna that's on the shelf behind her...she's got another think coming, though, if she thinks I'm opening them just for her...

haha. Snowy cracks me up. So glad that painting went well and those horrific walls are a thing of the past. Can't wait to see it. I am going to love having you close again! :-)

PS...stop stitching so much...it makes me feel inferior. Kidding-I picked up my Mirablia this weekend and have the bug again...mama's back!
