Wow!  I started trying to write this post a couple weeks ago...next thing I know, it's the end of April! 

Have you had crazy weather like we've had here in Illinois?  One day it's sunny and warm, and the next it's a snowstorm.

This was April 14, it snowed for over 12 hours and we ended up with nearly 9 inches of heavy, wet snow.

Hazel and Hollie loved playing in the snow most of the day.

A week later, the tulips were in bloom.  Notice the snow shovel is still on the front porch.  We had more snow last Saturday, but nothing like we had on April 14.

As I'm writing this, it's raining and we're in a flash flood warning.  We've already had almost 5 inches of rain in 2 days and more rain is forecast through the rest of the week.

Dottie Dog turned 14 and enjoyed one of her favorite treats.  Last September, when she was diagnosed with thyroid cancer, I wasn't sure we'd get to celebrate another birthday with Dottie.  We're thankful for each day she's still with us.

I have no stitching to show, but I did do some organizing in my craft room.  I've been trying to come up with some sort of plan for projects I'd like to stitch this year, if I can get the migraine under control.  I have been using the X-Stitch app and entering all my charts and kits so I have an idea of what I have.  I need suggestions for storing my charts and kits.  How do you store your charts and kits?  Do you have them sorted by designer or some other way?

That's all I have for now. 

Until next time,

Happy Stitchin'
