Round robins, weather and more!

We have spring in the Yukon!!! Temperatures are still low, lakes are still frozen but the sky is blue and days are very long. At 10 PM sun is still shining! Look what I found while walking yesterday:

Definitely spring is here!!!

Last week I've done quite some stitching! I finished second square for Carolyn's RR Alphabet Zoo. It was such a pleasure to work on it.

And I'm done with kind of Round Robin. I stitched a pincushion with a lovely floss from Rita (Wild Fire from Carrie's Creations. While stitching it I decided to stitch another one with beads and silk floss. I had some Madeira silk to try and it was a perfect pattern to do it. I made from it a little purse:

that's the front

and the back

and here are all my creations from this chart:

Now the chart with a skein of floss goes to my winner Patty. Check her blog for updates and make sure to leave her a comment if you like to participate!
While on the subject of purses, I received the loveliest coin purse from Peru. Yep! All the way from Peru! Thank you so much Jane, I love it! The leather feels so soft.

I also was stitching Cattitude. Here is the progress:

So long friends,
