I can't believe it has been only a week since my last post, for such a short time I feel like I have accomplished quite a bit! I am starting to feel like I am trying to see how many projects I can work on at the same time.
Here is SDW from top to bottom so far, and this is the detail on the my most recent motif. I really, really LOVE this sampler. I can't believe we are almost near the middle of the piece. The SAL is really keeping me on track.
Next up is Ann Grimshaw for the Scarlet Letter challenge. I really wish the mocha would photo better...it is more of a greyish brown.
And another for the Scarlet Letter challenge. This is the Love is the Road to Peace pincushion, which I have decided to stitch on perforated paper and make into an ornament since I am so finish-challenged :/
And last but not least is my start on the Permin Vierlande Celle 1826. I am glad to be finally off and running on this one.
So a little bit here and a little bit there and it seems to add up!
I also took a ride over to Candlewood Lake to see if it was frozen and indeed it was!
There were people out ice fishing and skating. I used to love to ice skate, now though I would be afraid to fall and break some bones! This is a detail pic from across the lake above.
By chance I also saw an Egret!
There was a pair of them flying around but I only managed to get one of them in mid-flight.
I quite prefer to be indoors where it is warm and cozy... perfect stitching weather! Here is Gigi in dreamland next to me while I am stitching....
And I know it is cold when she parks herself on the radiator to warm her butt! I just hope she doesn't roast herself one day!! LOL!
