Good morning ladies.  I've been going full out on Ana and have all the black stitched in.  Thought I would share her with you.
Since yesterday when I took this picture I've added alot of the oranges and greens.  I still have some stitching to do and then there's all the beads, beads and more beads.  
On friday when John, Peyton and I were at Costco we saw some flowers that hadn't opened yet and had such pretty buds.  They had no name on the paper as to what they were and curiousity got the better of me so I bought a bunch.  This is them all opened on Easter.
They turned out to be Irises and these are the small variety.  I love the color that they are and they remind me of my old home in Pa.  My Mother always planted Irises and she had them in several colors.  These are a happy reminder of better days.
Blessings for a great week, Barbara

Just a ton of stitching! I love how she has come to life. I like that you did enough to see here whole outline instead of the one row at a time approach!
