Happy Leap Year!!!

Yeah!  We get another day in February!!!  Oh what to do today?  Hmmmm something special or maybe do a little bit of finishing work or go to my new Hobby Lobby!!!???   I like the sound of going to my new Hobby Lobby!!!  I need a couple more wooden boxes for making into birthday gifts.

Here is an update of my BBD Breath of Spring SAL challenge to my blog followers.  I did finish the stitching for my Breath of Spring last week.  I went on Saturday to JoAnn Fabrics and found some very pretty backing fabric for it as well but did not find any lace like BBD had used on theirs.  I am hoping that this cording that I found will do nicely for an outside finish.

The colors in the finishing fabric were nice pastel colors that matched the colors in the design.  I did make one change on the chart though.  The GA Chai floss for the bunny's tail did not show up on my fabric which is 35ct Vintage Iced Cappuccino so I substituted DMC 3865 for the tail color.  I just used what fabric I had from my stash and only bought 3 or 4 missing colors for the project.

I hope everyone has a great day today!  I have errands to run this morning and then will try to get this little project totally finished later on today.

Happy Stitching!
