Four Seasons Part 1 .......(239)

We had a very relaxing couple days at the beach for hubby's birthday with my brother and his wife. Today is actually his birthday so we are having my daughter and her family over for lunch. I'm in the process of making a "from scratch" devil's food cake, first time making one without a box and just had to google "how to temper eggs"......fingers crossed!!! Here's a couple shots from the beach:

Today's Stroll piece is the start of a series of four seasonal pieces by The Drawn Thread; first up is Winter. I stitched these back to back in 1997 and had them all framed the same so they make a nice grouping on the wall. 

That blue one sticks out like a a sore thumb, but I loved winter stitched on it. I'll share the other seasons over the next three days.

Thanks for stopping by and your "twisted threads" of friendship!



  1. It looks like you had a good time at the beach. Happy birthday wishes to your husband. I like the winter piece you shared today, Stasi. Enjoy your day!

  2. Nice beach pictures. :D I am glad you had a good time. Happy Birthday to your husband! The cake sounds great! Winter is pretty.

  3. How'd the cake turn out? I've made white scratch cakes but have never been brave enough to try a devil's food! Happy birthday to you DH!

    The DT Winter piece is very pretty. It does sort of shout Look at me!! in the grouping, but blue is the perfect color for it. (you a Carole King fan, by any chance?)

  4. Tempering eggs isn't nearly as scary as it sounds. Hope your cake turned out well. It looks like you've been having a great time. Happy stitching! Andrea

  5. Great photos! A Happy Birthday to your husband. I learned the hard way about tempering eggs, got scrambled eggs in my cheese sauce for Macaroni and's easy to do once you know how.

    The winter is very nice and I like the frames very much. Hope to get mycomputer back soon so I see the photos better. Mary
