Spring has Sprung

Greetings, all! We finally have some spring weather, and the flowers are popping up all over. (What I want to know is who planted the lettuce in the big planter outside the shop. Very strange, but quirkily thriving.)

Anyone want to see my progress on With Thy Needle and Thread's "Stars and Stripes?"
Also by With Thy Needle and Thread, "Easter Parade." Yeah, I'm going to be a little late. Next year!  (Note that not all of these designs are brand-new.  Still, they're worth viewing again and stitching.  And there's plenty new in this post.
"Sweet Violet" has just finished planting something.... (With Thy Needle and Thread).

Perfect for the season!  "Easter Tree" by Cuore e Batticuore.

Also perfect for the season: "Spring Meadow" by Scattered Seeds Samplers.
"Spring Hare Standing Pinkeep" by Stacy Nash Primitives.

By Barbara Anna Designs, "The Feathered Whisperers."
We have several new charts in the shop by Sara Guermani: "Primavera" (Spring)
"Estate (Summer)"
"Waiting for Christmas"
Back to spring, with Just Another Button Company's adorable pin cushion (three designs come in the pack, and there are other packs with more designs):
Hands On Design's "A Year in Chalk--Hello Spring."
"Bunnies" by Prairie Schooler. I keep meaning to stitch ornaments for an Easter Tree.
By Notforgotten Farm: "Tending the Tulip."
An older design by The Silver Lining.  I love the realism of Marc Saastad's flowers.  We have other flowers!
La-D-Da's "Yellow Bird."
Widgets and Wool Primitives' "Spring Robin." 
Heart in Hand's "Easter Bird"
And this small, cheerful project, Country Cottage Needleworks' "Morning Song."
More birds and bees and flowers and trees next time!
