Poinsettia House progress

Last week flew by, we woke to a couple of inches of snow one morning and I snapped this picture on my way out the door.  We haven't had any real snow to speak of but the boys were out sledding at 6:30am before they went off to school.  It was a very picturesque morning.   Daisy got her fair share of snow flakes.


I haven't had lots of time for stitching but I did get to start Poinsettia House over the weekend and I love it.  I am using the recommended threads on 40ct Natural linen.  With enough stitching time this would stitch up quickly, problem is I am busy carting boys around to sports and MD appointments.  I hope to get back to it this week.



The weather has been chilly these last couple of days and the boys are hoping to get some ice to skate on.  I'm keeping my fingers crossed because they all have cabin fever.   Happy Stitching!

The snow looks lovely and that is about as close as we will come to any. Daisy looks happy with it. A small start is better than none I always say.

What a lovely dog! I hear you - I am forever in the car taking girls to dance and music lessons! I am trying again to stitch while I wait during their lessons, but I like having a good light, and I am afraid of getting something on my linen from the car or worse!

You have so much knowledge about this issue, and so much passion. You also know how to make people rally behind it, obviously from the responses. Youve got a design here thats not too flashy, but makes a statement as big as what youre saying. Great job, indeed.
