I made some good progress on Blossom Splendor. I'll be working on her face soon! It bothers me that she has no face, lol. As you can see, I've finished her sleeve. A little backstitching, and the details should pop out on it.
I've signed up for another mailart exchange, so I've set aside Blossom for now. I decided on the design I'm going to stitch and started it last night. Of course, it couldn't be easy... no... I decided to stitch it opposite of the way it's charted, so that's been a trick. Looks good so far. Speaking of mailart, I was showing off the exchanges I've received in the past and realized that I have 3 envelopes from 3 different countries: Malaysia, Australia, and Finland. How cool is that?!?

For the past three years, I've been using a teeny-tiny battery powered weed trimmer that I'd gotten from a lady on Freecycle, or
Also invested in a lawn spreader to try and get a handle on the weeds growing all over my yard. Another first!
