The rains have come, but the temperatures aren't too bad. I don't miss the snow we used to live with back in New York. If I want to play in the snow, Mt. Hood is an hour away. And we don't ever have to shovel snow!
Our grandson was with us for much of the weekend, so I didn't get too much stitching done, but I did manage a little bit. We are continuing to do block exchanges in the Stitchers' Timeout yahoo group, and January's theme is snowmen. This is called Having a Merry Time and is from Val's Stuff. It is stitched on a bone colored evenweave with DMC threads. The whole time I was stitching it, I felt like I had stitched it before. It just looked so familiar, but I only bought the pattern a couple of months ago! I think he is kind of cute!
Last year, I joined in with all the stitchers who were stitching Scarlet Letter designs, but I ended up losing my stitching mojo for much of the year and didn't get very far. I started the Abigail Gould Sampler January or February and this is how much I got done that first day
I've decided to stitch samplers on Sundays, so I picked this back up on Sunday night. Here is my progress so far. I have no idea what the fabric is, but it is stitched with DMC
I'm also working on finishing up a round robin that we stitched 2012/2013 with Friendly Stitchers.
I'll post a photo of the finished piece, hopefully by the weekend.
So, until next time, I hope that everyone who is in the really cold parts of the country get some relief soon. Thanks so much for visiting!
