April Rain…

It’s that time of the year again, where it has been raining NON-STOP for days… I feel like I shouldn't complain, as we really need the rain here in Taiwan. But I’m so glad to see the sun out again today~ It’s such a nice break from all the wetness~

Another thing that made my day was Melissa’s package~ I was very lucky to win a giveaway from her blog Words and Blooms!! This package had to travel half way across the world and I’m so happy that it arrived safe and sound last week. I absolutely love these two charts, and cannot wait to have my hands on them. Thank you soooo much, Melissa~

But before I can start any new projects, I have to finish my Mary first!!! I did made a little progress on it, finishing another motif. This one is quite challenging, as I had to pay more attention on the rose buds. I love how it turned out, though~

And here is the whole progress of my Mary. It’s such a joy to see the gaps slowly filling in~ (Sorry about the wrinkles!!! I’ll deal with that later!!!)

That’s it for now~ So what do you do on rainy days?

  4. You're doing great on MW - I also remember that rosebud wreath being a bit of a pain to stitch...
