There are a lot of reds in that jar. It almost looks like it could be from a Valentine stitch. The reds are from my current stitch, Maple Leaf by AAN. Here's my progress on it.
The remainder of the orts are from my first finish of 2013. This one was started in Dec. 2012 and I had hoped it would be finished by year's end which is why the date stitched reflects that. It's called Let Every Heart and is from Heartstring Samplery Joy to the World.
The box containing the date was supposed to be stitched in Ecru but it wouldn't have shown up on the piece so I swapped it out for DMC 842. I might try tea dying this piece this weekend. I'm a little nervous about it since it's the first time I've tried anything like this.
Then I'm hoping that perhaps it will be finished into a wall hanging or perhaps a larger pillow.
My little snowman in my ort photo states Let it Snow but I think we've already had enough in our region. Around a metre of snow (3 ft) has already fallen since mid December. Our temps are starting to warm up some and it's slowly melting but our winter is far from over. I'll leave you with some photos of my family taking advantage of all that snow on two outings, one is toboganning and the second one is snow tubing. Looks like fun!
