This April looks like summer

It has been like summer, high temperatures all week. And this week I am a very lucky woman, because I'm off work from last Thursday until today. So I got an extra long weekend to clean the terrace, rearrange my flowerpots and buy some extra geraniums for my hanging baskets.
Besides that I have been stitching a lot!

Holland Springtime has great progress. As you can see I added the flowers on top of the left onion, and two tiles. Now I only have to stitch the last tulipbulb and then on to the border. I am more confident on reaching my goal , to have the stitching finished by the end of May.

Besides stitching I have been preparing some blocks. From May 2nd until May 6th DH and I leave for a trip to Berlin. We go by car and as I like do some stitching I prepared two blocks. The first is the third block of My Tweets.

The other one is the second block of Hearts Desire.

Wow, your Holland is beautiful. I have Desert Garden Mandala on the Q, and it's a fun stitch. I'm thinking I need to pick up a few more, lol. Hope you're having a nice springtime!!
