UFOs, NewFOs and Neither

I'm gonna start with NEITHER!
While I haven't been in a quilting mood lately,
I always seem to keep some sort of stitching going.
So here's a peek at a new "side" project...more about this in a minute.

I can't believe April is already here and I never posted my progress:
UFO finished and framed...
I hung my 15 year old finally finished Lighthouse Cross Stitch
above my little fireplace mantel...it makes me smile!
Linking to Finish it First.

And the progress on my NewFO is short but sweet...
One Raggedy Ann Redwork block finished!
Linking to NewFO's.

And finally back to the NEITHER.
I started to get tired of all the red I've been working with lately,
and with April here I needed some colorful Spring cheer.
So last weekend I came across a cute, light floral embroidery pattern...
 ...rummaged through my embroidery floss stash...
...and have been happily stitching away the last week.

Without Rhyme nor Reason, no UFO or NewFO pressure
Just pure enjoyment working with a variety of color and stitches.

I recently contracted the cold I've been avoiding for many weeks, 
but at least I have something to keep my mind occupied.

Best Wishes for your Easter!

Wow - a 15-year-old finish - congratulations!!!! I love your whimsical Raggedy Ann and your *just because* stitchery! I've been enjoying some stitchery too this year for the first time in a long time. Hope your cold disappears quickly!!!
