I hope you all had a wonderful Earth Day. My family celebrated by spending some time outside in nature at the lake near our house.

While we live in Florida, no it was not warm enough to go swimming this weekend.

This was the result of indulging in cold water fun.

Once they warmed up a bit, the kids decided that playing on the shore was just as much fun as swimming.

I hope you all had a wonderful Easter. My family was sick during the holiday, and we are still on the mend, but we still pulled ourselves together long enough for an egg hunt.

This weekend I had planned to travel with the kids to New Orleans and celebrate Mardi Gras with my sister. I was going to regale you with all of the interesting sights that Mardi Gras had to offer. Then I got sick, really sick. I couldn’t eat, and I could barely walk for days. Since Mardi Gras was no longer an option, I stayed home with the kids this weekend, and the sights I’ll be sharing this week will instead what I was able to accomplish this weekend in my reduced capacity, and stuff I’ve done previously, but haven’t shared.

This piece took me over a month, and probably over 1000 French Knots to create, but I think it was worth it. It is one of my favorite embroidered anatomy pieces to date.
