Stitching In My Garden With a Friend!

Carole is working on an Easter Dress for her Granddaughter. Dotted Swiss!
Today was a little chilly in the shade so I pulled my chair into the sun.  The temperature was in the high 60's and it feels like spring!
This is the collar that will go on the Dotted Swiss dress. This collar is included with the dress pattern.  It is Childrens Corner "Margaret".
Knowing Carole, the collar will have lovely embroidery on it before she's done!
Of course we had tea!
I was not johnny  on the spot with the camera today!  I didn't think about photos until after tea.  We had already finished off the Chocolate Chip/Almond Scones and the pot of tea!!
My Pansies are still blooming happily.  They don't know that warmer weather is just around the corner.
I found a new critter for my garden.  There's a merry little frog just to the left of the flowers.  I love little cast iron garden  critters.  I especially love birds.  I am always on the lookout for them and I scatter them around my flowers!  They make me happy!

Lovely pictures, as per usual. Carol's dress is so pretty. We have no such thing as an heirloom shoppe any where near here. I am admiring Carol's wonderful "collar board". Is that something that is available for purchase that you know of? Thanks, Jeannie.
