I've been stitching. I've worked on Miss Snow Fairy last week. I'm about 1/2 done now. I switched out working on her with This is the Day. You remember that sampler in JCS by Heart in Hand? The one with exhuberant colors?
Well, with all the grey in the recent days, I've decided I needed something colorful to work on. So I pulled it out of my ever growing stash pile. I'm stitching it with the original colors. I have a love/hate relationship with the sampler, though. The linen I'm stitching it on, 36ct Lakeside, Autumn Gold, is very, very scratchy. It grabs the thread. It distorts the stitches. It makes me unhappy. But I'm too far into this sampler to start over. This linen will NOT get the best of me.
So tomorrow, I'm hoping for some sun. Then I'll take some pics of my stitching. And BTW, I snagged the pic from Edgar's blog, Blacksheep's Bit of the Web...
So until tomorrow, stay warm! I'm curling up by the fireplace with my Kindle, my stitching and a cup of cocoa. How about you?
