As January Moves Along

As January moves along, so does my stitching on BOAF's "Alphabet Sampler".  I found I was suffering from Abecedarian fatigue, so I stopped with the letters, and moved on to the ribbon border.  The ribbon is now done, but I have 23 blossoms (yes, I counted!) to stitch along the edges - I stitched the first in the upper right corner.

Signs of Spring continue to make themselves known - this is an early variety of daffodil. 

The gray squirrel is a year-around sign of plenty of food for everyone to enjoy!

Hi Beth - I love the floss color on the BOAF piece. You are making great progress. And I love seeing your springy pictures - it makes going out and shoveling the driveway a little bit easier because I have hope for spring! LOL! ( I know I'm delusional - we have long way to go till spring in Ohio)

Oooh, that BOAF piece is going to be SO pretty! I don't think I've ever seen it before, so will look forward to following your progress.
Ah yes, the weather was definitely spring-like in Holland too, yesterday
