Are you ready for even more Spring? I am. And I thought you might like a bouquet of spring tulips to brighten your day (this is TULIPS from my Secret Garden Collection, stitched on finer 24 ct. Congress Cloth):

And since it's Friday, I'll close with some Friday Flower shots of the individual tulips that are currently appearing in my backyard:
Ahhhhh....Spring is definitely here to stay -- so enjoy your day!
