This is what I woke to this morning. Scenic but not really what I was wanting to see! Another 15 cm (6 inches) is expected on Thursday along with freezing rain. That storm will start tonight. Hopefully that will be the end of it!
I have concentrated on two stitches this month. Blackbird Designs Bird in Hand and Rosewood Manor Dreaming of Tulips.
Bird in Hand was chosen by my granddaughter to be stitched for her birthday.
This is a progress pic but I am actually finished stitching the whole piece. I will post a picture of the finish next week for my Smalls stitching post. I only have to finish this off now as a pillow. My granddaughter has even picked out her backing fabric!
Dreaming of Tulips is a wonderful stitch! I love Karen's designs. Completing each motif feels like an accomplishment.
What I love about Karen's designs is that not only is the whole design wonderful but you can take portions of the design and stitch them as small finishes. I'm stitching on pages 2 and 3 of this right now with 3 more pages remaining.
That's it for now on the stitching front. I've been home now for 10 days following a great vacation in Cape Coral, Florida. My mom and step-dad rent a home down there and I flew in to visit them along with my sister and her boyfriend.
Here are some pics of our week together.
I loved the break from all the cold. We had marvelous weather and now my youngest sister is down there with her family enjoying the same. I only wish that I could do this every winter!
I'll be back at the end of next week with my Smalls post and hopefully another new start. See you then!
