It was a freezing cold weekend here in Connecticut, BRRRR!!, perfect weather for staying in and for stitching, stitching, and more stitching!! :)
On Friday I finished the Small Sampler #1, my first for the new year, woohoo!
Small Sampler #1 by Ewe & Eye & Friends
32 count unknown evenweave
WDW and dmc threads
This was a real fun stitch, it had some over one, satin stitches, and eye stitches too. I think I would like to make it into a small pillow instead of framing, so a trip to the fabric store will be in order to find a nice backing piece.
On Saturday, I got some more stash in the mail!! With my Needle and Thread Friendship Samplers, Birds of a Feather Kindness Sampler..... and the new Colonial Garden by Plum Street Sampler, which will definitely have to be added to my list for this year, I just LOVE it! :)
Today, I was fortunate to have off for the holiday and since I was feeling stir crazy from being in most of the weekend, I decided to treat myself to another movie. After watching the Golden Globes last night, I decided I just had to see The Descendants to see how it possibly could have beaten out my pick, Moneyball. And sooooo, I still stand by my pick and if you haven't seen it I recommend it highly, but, I really did enjoy the movie and the scenery was beautiful, how could Hawaii (and Mr. Clooney) not be! Especially when it is freezing cold here, it made me want to pack my bags and jump on the next plane outta here!
My weekend would not have been complete without working on Mary Wigham some more (especially since Elizabeth Hancock has still not arrived - I am afraid she took a detour somewhere!). A few more motifs are done, and one of them finally in the PURPLE I switched in :)
I wish you all a wonderful week and thanks so much for stopping by! Keep cozy warm!
Happy Stitchings to you all!!
