Love Never Fails Sampler

I have begun stitching on Love Never Fails by Barbara Ana Designs. I am stitching this piece on 32 count antique ivory linen with called for DMC threads. I will be doing this for our 30th wedding anniversary. This is such a wonderful stitch!
So far I am enjoying every minute of this piece. 
Here are some progress pictures:

This is just a quick update post :)
Our Easter was wonderful, I hope yours was also.
Wishing you a wonderful weekend ahead!

Friday bits

The weather is finally turning to spring in our little town. It is so wonderful to see all the beautiful blooming trees as I drive around now. 
I snapped a couple of pictures to share:

I was busy baking for the Lenten soup luncheon I volunteer for at the church, along with Saint Patrick's day baking for our family. I made wonderful loaves of Irish Soda bread, an annual tradition in our home!

The Deacon of our Parish surprised each of the volunteers with a ladybug planter with zinnia flowers for volunteering!

I've been stitching a bit more on our anniversary sampler, "love never fails" by Barbara Ana Designs

I have joined the blanket and shawl ministry at our church. I am very excited about this! I know the women will be able to teach me so much more than I already know with crochet. 

I have made my first hat for donation!
My husband starting working on a project at home, a wonderful project! I won't post about it until it's done though. I am pretty excited about it!
That's all the news for now... Just some little bits!
Wishing you all a blessed weekend,
Louise xx
