Snow Garden - Progress



I thought I had stitched more than this, Oh Well.... I am stitching the Whole Caboodle on 35 count Natural Linen. I am using the called for floss, unless I see that some colors with disappear into the fabric. I will change them if they are to close the the same color as the fabric. This week I have done nothing. Same old same old... Washing dishes, sweeping floors, and washing clothes. Does it ever change? Not in all my years. Weatherman saying it is going to warm up this weekend. I sure hope so. I have never been this cold since I grew up living in a home with a floor furnace. I explained to hubby last night.. I think I will pay that 300.00 power bill just to be able to stay warm. lol Hopefully, he is going to seal up all the duct work this weekend. ( I type this while I am smiling)

I did receive some stash in the mail.


BBD - Valentine Rose , WTN&T - Oh Tannenbaum and WTN&T - Needles & Pins Heart Pinkeep. I am expecting some more coming in..

If anyone else is doing the Anniversaries Of The Heart, could you tell me which chart has the bonus pattern that is between Feb & March? I have only purchased Jan & Feb. so far. I need to finish my Monthly ornament. I am still stitching on it.

Hope everyone is having a great January !!! Till Later....

I love Snow Garden. The colors are so yummy.
I know what you mean about cold and power bills. I hate to see what ours is going to be.

Nice progress and looks lovely!

Nice stash--I'd have chosen each of them also. Snow garden is so pretty, but I'm with you on switching out some of that colors. Why put in all the effort if you can't see the stitches!?

Michele said...

This was my first visit to your blog - I love all the antique greens! The new stash looks like fun!

Hi April. I was browsing on the net, and came across your blog. It's nice to find a stitching blog from Alabama. I live in Jacksonville, AL, up around Gadsden and Anniston. I'm thinking about starting the AOTH series, seeing all the beautiful progress pics out there. I like the contrast of the floss against your linen on Snow Garden.

I know what you mean about staying warm. I've lived in AL for 18 years, and this winter has been one of the coldest I remember. James Spann is calling for more snow next weekend, too. Brrr...

I'll add your blog to my Google Reader, and stop back by to see your stitching.

Stay warm,
Rebekka
