soon after this picture was taken, we couldn't see the treeline, which you can barely see in this photo. Sunday morning it looked like this
The forecast is for temperatures close to 60 with rain tomorrow, so except for in the shade and where the snow was piled, I don't expect the snow will last for much longer.
The other difference is in my stitching. Lots of progress, for me, on my HAEDs.
Christmas Presence and Its About Time each had 300 stitches added and now look like this:
|Its About Time|
I also finished the Heaven and Earth Designs Facebook challenge on Shakespearean Fantasy
Once I finished the challenge, I moved back over to my regular stitching area and put in another 100 stitches
I started The Sampler Life SAL January block this morning. It is called Welcome Spring by Jardin Prive
I love the colors in this piece, but I don't care for the color chart. I have stitched a number of charts that are done in color, but there is also a symbol. This chart is just colors. Because it is a small piece, it isn't horrible, but I would not want to stitch a large piece from this style pattern.
The last piece I worked on this week is Christmas Soldiers from Just Nan. I finished the cuff portion, the tassel and am now working on the perle cotton "white work" section. There is quite a bit of perle cotton on this piece which while it gives a nice texture it is not one of my favorite fibers to use.
I'll be heading back to the office tomorrow so not as much stitching this week, but will try to make up for it on the weekend.
