New Stitchiness

I received my Mother's Day gift (#2) yesterday.  I am sooooooo stoked.  I have been searching for a birth sampler since I discovered I was pregnant with my DS.  I found a few, but nothing that I just had to have.  Finally, about a month ago, I found it.  Its delicate, cute, and timeless.  Its the Historical Sampler Company's A is for Ark birth sampler.  Here is a pick of the kit.  I had to order it from England (feel super worldly).  I will try to get a better pick of the front of the tote tomorrow so you can see the actual finished project. 
The colors are divine.  They are deep and nature inspired.  The linen is 32 ct. and it even came with a gold plated needle.  I am so excited.  I just can't wait to get my hands on this project.  Its on my list for next year, BUT, as we stitchers know, a few stitches and some prepping may be in order.  Nothing like fresh fabric in need of some color.

The next pic is really nothing that will make sense.  Its the pic of the Love Quilt Square that I am working on.  I did not get to do any stitching last night.  My in laws came over for dinner and a little DS playtime.  It was so much fun.  My DS and his Gaga (grandmother) crawled on the floor playing hide and seek.  They also scared each other.  My DS has a sick sense of humor for 20 months.  He loves to be scared. 

This is a part of the snake skin.  I will have more tomorrow but may wait until the end of the week to update the pic.  Don't want to bore anyone with my super slow stitching.  Wells folks, that it for today.  I will have better pics tomorrow and a yard update.  We have grass fuzz.  So exciting!!!!
