Finished Needlework - February 2016

I finished some of my challenge pieces in February.  The first was the Big Berry Scissors Companion by Ewe and Eye.




My second finish was Think Summer by Lizzie Kate.















My third finish was A Winter's Night, part of the Remember the Ladies series from Kreinik.


Not the best pictures but it is good to make progress.

Orchid Show - Chicago Botanic Garden

 I love to wander around the Chicago Botanic Garden with my camera.  This time I went to see the Orchid Show.  I also spent some time looking at the succulents in the greenhouses.  Outside there was still quite a bit of snow on the ground and not much new growth.
