First Robin of Spring

Thank you all for your kind comments on the Heart and Hand piece~ You all are my driving force to keep going!!!

To answer Denise's questions, we have finally settled down in our new place, and I'm loving it more and more (despite of the expensive rent, of course...)~ I've visited San Diego a couple times before and had a good very impression. Now that I actually am living here, it proved that my first impressions are quite correct~ The weather is just perfect almost everyday, the people are really friendly, and there are just so many places to go to. What I love the most, though, is that there are quite a few needlework shops in the San Diego area!!! I've checked them up online and had planned to visit each and everyone of them very soon!!!!

While I was digging through my stashes trying to figure out which project I feel like to do next, I realized I'm running out of fabric and threads!!! So before I can kit the bigger projects up, I decided to stitch this cute little design from Elizabeth's Designs~ I know I'm weeks ahead of myself but maybe it's the warm weather here in San Diego made me felt like spring has already arrived~

I haven't decided how to finish it yet, recently I'm in the all stitch mood and just want to keep going!! So this one will go to the to be finished pile and I'll finish it up in a later date~ Until then, happy stitching~~


  1. Hi Theresa. Your Robin is beautiful! I stitched this design for my mother last year but I accidentally left of the "i" in spring. I didn't realize it until after I finished it into an ornament so I gave it to her anyway and didn't tell her about the mistake. It took her several weeks to notice!

    Thanks for posting on my blog!

  2. How cute :) Robins are my favorite bird...and as soon as it warms a bit, they'll start showing up here in Indiana...of course they can't come here's only 2 degrees outside this a.m.!

  3. Oh, Theresa, it's so nice bird! Very beautiful stitches and lovely colors :)
