Japanese Garden Update and a Finish

I hope everyone had a great weekend! We spent our weekend cleaning. Our old vacuum cleaner was not doing a good job picking up dog hair, so we ordered a new one (Dyson DC28). I was quite excited when it arrived, and even happier when I used it. Amazing! Then I used the little hand tools and cleaned the nooks and crannies in our apartment (This is how I know I am getting old-I was excited about a vacuum cleaner). Afterwards, hubby steam cleaned the carpet, and it looks so much nicer now.

On to stitching. I made some more progress on Japanese Garden. I'm getting there :)

 I also finished up February by Little House Needleworks. One more month to go :)
Thanks for stopping by!

Sounds like the new vacum is pretty great but not as fabulous as your stitching.Japanese Garden is looking great. I love the sweet February finish too.
