It is Colder than a _______ here in Alabama. ( you can fill in the blank) I am not complaining one bit. Maybe a little.... I know my northern friends have been freezing for awhile now, not to mention the snow. The Almanac said this was going to be a cold weather. How do they get these things right?....
I have been getting some stitching done. I finished Housework by Lizzie Kate. I had to get out in the 16 degrees this morning to run and get black seed beads for her 2 eyes. That is Love... Only needed 2 beads but have to buy a whole package. I have every color I thought, till I was looking for black ones. I went to Hobby Lobby... No Beads in Cross stitch section... went to Michael's, no beads in cross stitch section. So, what did I do?.. I went in the jewelry section and found this round case with black, dk gray, white, clear, and silver beads. Problem solved. Had to go buy some groceries.. Yea, I know... I did not buy all the bread and milk out !!! lol There is still some left on shelves. That always happens in the south when they call for snow. Yes ! We are to have snow on Thursday.
I have been working on the heirloom afghan. I will have to get a picture posted. I do have a picture of the Housework. I am going to make it into a pillow. Planning to put it out in the sun room when it stops being a junk room. Here is picture of Housework. Not to good. Blue linen is always had to get to come out clear in picture. I did change the word Croak color to mulberry.
I am also working on the Cricket Collection's Halloween Ornaments. They are a lot of fun to stitch because of the specialty threads and different color linens.
I am also going to start stitching along with the Olympics on Melissa's 2010 Winter Olympics Stitch a long. Take a look here.. http://2010olympicsal.blogspot.com/search?updated-min=2009-01-01T00%3A00%3A00-08%3A00&updated-max=2010-01-01T00%3A00%3A00-08%3A00&max-results=1
