Japanese Garden and Baking

I hope everyone had a great weekend! We visited my sister's family this weekend for my niece's birthday party. Wow, I didn't realize 5-seven year old girls could make so much noise. We had a good time visiting with my family though.

I didn't get much stitching done this weekend, but I did work on Japanese Garden during the week. I love the cherry blossoms. They are so cute! While stitching on the corner section, the silk thread kept catching on my fingers and pulling out of the needle. Quite annoying. I am going to make sure my hands are moisturized, and I clip any hang nails when the weather is dry like this before stitching. Anyway, here are some pics:


I also finished up LHN's Baking this week- a cute holiday pattern. I thought the Poinsettia flowers looked adorable in the corners. And then the slice of cake and pie...yum! It makes me hungry just looking at it : )
 
Thanks for stopping by!
