Early Spring Finish

It was a productive weekend! I was able to get some stitching in between basketball games - it was playoff weekend for my youngest son. After spending every year of his career on losing teams, he was finally on a winning team! Even more important was his soft-spoken coach who stressed good sportsmanship over winning and an entire team of wonderful teammates that high fived "good tries". It was so wonderful to watch my reluctant player blossom with this team to be the best that he could be :)
They ended the season in first place, made it to the championship game, but lost... After an initial disappointment, he is very proud of himself and his two trophies :)
Here's my finish:

"Lion & Lamb Sampler"
by The Prairie Schooler
Book #146 Daffodils
I love the backing fabric that I found for it.

Now to decide what to work on next...
I may not be back for a bit as we are taking a quick little trip for spring break.
I'll be packing my projects first ;)
Hopefully I'll have another finish when I return!
Trust in him at all times, O people;
pour out your hearts to him,
for God is our refuge. Selah
~Psalm 62:8
Blessings, Patti
