Back to car stitching

As the weather is FINALLY resembling spring around here, I've reclaimed my Wednesday morning stitching time in the car.  This is Rosewood Manor's "Within", a card design I picked up at Celebration of Needlework last year.
The text is supposed to stitched in DMC 645, but that color was too close to the fabric color, so I used the darkest blue-green called for in the pattern instead (I think it is DMC 3768).  All the pretty bright colors in this little sampler make me so happy!

In other happy news, I received a lovely package in the mail from Cathy over at I Love to Stitch.  I entered the Pay It Forward chart stash giveaway, and although I wasn't chosen as the next recipient, Cathy sent me 2 cute little charts and some needles!  I don't have a picture on hand at the moment, but she sent LHN's "Be Thankful" (adorable white pumpkins) and another sweet small alphabet sampler with crows - I think it will be perfect for the "basket of bird smalls" I've been envisioning.  Thank you, Cathy!!!
