Is it Spring Yet?

Believe it or not today…well yesterday was the Vernal Equinox or the First Day of Spring! Well that’s what the calendar is telling me. The equinox means equal parts daylight and darkness and the vernal equinox welcomes warmer temperatures, longer days and saying goodbye to winter.

The cherry blossoms will be blooming soon and in just a few short weeks Passover, Easter and baseball will be here. But what is all this white stuff that I am seeing on the news? What’s going on? I think Mother Nature is confused!

Even Mooch is thinking of it as he celebrates the first day of Spring!

or this great canvas by Maggie “Poppies & Lavender…

I hope soon that the winter that never quits, will go away and you too can have a party as Mooch and Earl are doing…

Even Sylvester is thinking spring!

and until next time…keep on stitching

About Vicky

Needlepoint, morning noon and evening! what could be better than this? I work on the computer in the daylight hours editing stitch guides and drawing stitches that you will see in the next Needlepoint Now for your stitching pleasure! In between this, there is time for taking pictures of my stitching adventures, Facebook and writing stitch guides for canvas that I am stitching for Needle Deeva, Maggie, Ruth Schmuff and others. Mostly needlepoint you ask? well we will talk about my cats Sylvester and AlleyCat, better known as "the brat". Of course I can't forget Felix who was the love of my life for over 14 years. He broke my heart as he departed for the Rainbow Bridge last year. Oh did I mention baseball?

  1. Spent the last several days reading through your archives and enjoying all the beautiful and fun needlepoint projects. Thinking about giving it a try – starting by sending for the book How To Needlepoint by TNNA . Thanks for all your work in writing this blog – the cartoons are fun and of course it’s interesting to see what Alley Cat and Sylvester are up to. We have a Sylvester visiting us as the moment. He’s kind of a cranky guy, though. I laughed about the PIGS – I actually have some, just didn’t think about the name. Looking forward to your new stitching projects.

  2. i think everyone is ready for spring. Sylvester looks very interested the plants or maybe the water. Thank you for the magnet, i love it!!!! It is on my current canvas to inspire me to stitch more or faster. I’m taking a class with Laura Taylor at Needle Works in Austin and am doing the prework for the class. My friends are loving checking on my homework progress, since I am a former teacher. Thank you again for selecting me to recieve a gift, hopefully it carries some of your stitiching magic.

    • ooh aren’t you sweet! My BFF Missy is also in that class and she too keeps talking about the homework. One of these days I want to take a class at The Needleworks…enjoy!

  3. Vicky, we are so ready for winter to leave…but today we have awakened to another storm! The good news is that I can stay inside and stitch! What a great picture of Sylvester!

    • Enjoy your stitching day and sorry for the weather. I love that picture of Sylvester too! He was probably waiting for me to turn the water on for him to take a little drink.
