Spring is Springing up slowly here is Vancouver, we got a sunny weekend for the first time i can remember this year and we took to the park and had lots of much needed vitamin D.
I took the pic above one day when Xen was looking particularly like a retro girl from one of those cheesy hallmark posters i remember from the 90's. Hehee.

Things are going well with my Embroidery as you can see..I have not done cross stitch since i was a kid but i do remember having a knack for it. I really can't believe it took this long to get back into it! I really love the ability for time for slow down while i work on this piece. 

I have special other news but it will have to wait for another post ;D

We got a rare chance to get away from it all..to Maui! It was a really relaxing plus we stayed in a lovely hotel that had some lovely gardens.

My view for the week.
It was extra nice since it was snowing when i left home ..hehee..

This Duck was a common visitor, there was also a chicken around as well and we kept them well fed:D


Also a sneak peek of what i have been working on since i got back!
It is amazing how a small vacation really charges up your creative batteries! 
I have been addicted to this cross stitch since i started it and am determined to finish it without getting any other projects in the way. The only thing pulling me away is a new job i have doing cute designs for comfy house style slippers. 

Anyhow i hope to frame this in my sewing nook and make it the start of a collection on my wall.

This is my Inspiration..http://www.thenester.com/

La La LaLaLaLa La La La La La

Kirsten Rask of Shmancy asked me to make a exclusive plush for her table at the Emerald City Comic Con in Seattle.
She is getting a bunch of plush artists to do the same as well and the theme was of course ..Comics!
I  remember reading the Smurf comics when i was a kid and also i just couldn't resist making one of my gnomes into a smurf!

I made a limited amount of 20 for her so make sure to pick one up if you can!
The Emerald City Comic Con is held in Seattle on March 30, 31 and April 1st.
