Lazy Sunday

Today I have no plans other than to enjoy the glorious sunshine! We had a lot of rain over night and this morning the breezes from outdoors smells like SPRING! Our trees are just starting to bud out and the red winged blackbirds are making a lot of racket. Of course, it's not really spring at our house until the orioles return, which should be any day.
 I have their grape jelly ready and waiting!
I've been a bit lax on showing my Sophie's Garden progress.
I'm getting pretty close to the end.

I've been keeping the embroidery pretty simplistic on most of the blocks, but I got a little ambitious and spiced things up a bit on the tulips. 

Tonight I will be stitching on this block during Game of Thrones.
I'm behind one episode of Mr. Selfridge, so I will put him on the DVR -- I need to catch up in order!
