Japanese Garden Update and a Finish

It is hard to believe I am turning 30 this week! In honor of my birthday, I kindly gifted myself with some cross-stitch stash :) I ordered Lilac and Evening Primrose by Nora Corbett, beads, and some fabric. I also signed up for Chatelaine's Japanese Moss Garden, meaning I need to finish Japanese Garden sooner rather than later.

So, here is my progress on Japanese Garden. I am getting there!

I also had a small finish last week: Berries by Little House Needleworks. I needed something that felt like spring, because it has not been warm here in Alabama. We actually had snow this weekend (it didn't stick).

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!
