Once again we are bracing for a snow storm. The last storm we were told that we would get a slushy 2 inches which quickly turned into 15 inches and a day off from school. My boys spent the bettter part of the afternoon building an igloo. It was lots of fun seeing them work together and enjoying the outdoors.
I have recently been stitching from magazines and found this in last month"'s Cross Stitch and Needlework.I finished it a while ago but hadn't had a chance to photograph it. It is Key to My Heart by Cherrywood designs. I stitched it on 30 ct For the Cure linen by R & R. I used the recommended threads and was less than thrilled that you couldn't see the words very clearly. Since my time is so limited for stitching right now the prospect of frogging had me thinking why not just leave it. You can see it up close and once I back the linen to make it into a pillow I think it will show up a little more. Otherwise, oh well!! I can't spend time stressing over my hobby when my job saps every ounce of energy from me.
On my hoop is Block 5 of Shores by CHS and I am working on a SAL with Carol. I hope to have part one done this week so that I can share it with you. I have also finished up 2 exchange pieces which I can't share quite yet but I am pleased with how they turned out. One is a box and the other is a needlebook. I hope you are all happily stitching. Thanks for stopping by and leaving such encouraging comments. I love hearing from each and every one of you.
