PhotoHunt, April Goals & Happy Dance

Well with this post, you're getting a 3-fer!  I don't know what's best, to have divided each of these up into individual posts over several days or to put it all into one?

This past weekend's PhotoHunt theme was "Fresh"


What's nicer than being waited on hand and foot having fresh food being plated and served?  This is my friend Dan who loves to cook.  Three times a  year his wife Ann hosts a stitching retreat and on Saturday he cooks for us an awesome lunch each time.

As it is the beginning of the month its time to review my goals from March and share with you what I'd like to accomplish in April.

March Goal Review

FINISH Enchantment of Winter - YES!
Work on The Accolade - Yes
Stitch one ornament - Yes
Work on Winter Mandala - Yes


April Stitching Goals

Stitch one ornament
Work on The Accolade
Finish Winter Mandala

Yesterday was one of those days where it was hard to nail down what exactly I wanted to do and what I wanted to stitch on.  I finally settled for stitching up my April ornament

Reindeer Freebie
Stitched on: 32ct Queen Ann's Lace Joblean
Stitched with: DMC & Mill Hill Beads

Keep an eye out for Wednesday's entry I'll announce who the Travelling Pattern will be moving onto!

You don't know how thrilled I am to have someone not know what they want to stitch and end up stitching one of my designs! *squee*

It looks great too, Dani!
