when I woke up this morning to 3 inches of snow, I thought NO!!!! Didn't Mother Nature get the message? It's SPRING!!! Well...it's been said that if you want the weather to change in Upstate NY, just wait 5 minutes.
I was going to let Miss Daisy choose the winners of my "I'm Sick of Winter" Giveaway but I decided to let the random generator do the honors. Here's the results!
Here is your sequence:
3 - Woolwoman! The big winner!
20 - Blu Stitcher
14 - Ohiofarm Girl
So kids, email me at J24D29@stny.rr.com with your address and I'll get your goodies out by the week's end.
Thanks for playing everyone! I really wish I could give all of you a little "sumthin'...
Hi everyone! Today is a snow day! We woke up to 18+ inches of blowing and drifting white stuff this morning. Because the county has issued a state of emergency and they haven't plowed the roads and my driveway has at least 2 feet of snow (and it's a long driveway) effectively, I am home for the day! Woo Hoo! Guess what I'm doing ALL DAY today! Yep. Spending the day with my needle and thread.
I wanted to post a few pictures of my latest Wip finishes and a progress picture. I apologize that the colors aren't true. No matter what I did, I couldn't get the linen color right. The pics are grey but not by choice...
Below is Her Sampler from Carriagehouse Samplings. I ADORE this sampler and I can't wait until I can frame it.
I just love this center panel.

32ct Vintage Mocha Linen
Next is With Thy Needle and Thread's, Miss Snow Fairy. I want to make her into a pillow but I am nervous about finishing her.

Last is my current Wip. Honestly, I don't know why I put it away, I am loving stitching these alphabets. It's Merrily Beams Alphabets. This is the first piece for my red sampler wall. I love redwork and alphabets so what could be better? I have so many more red samplers waiting in the wings. I want to stitch them all right now.
32ct cream linen
Don't you just love those red birds with the cherries?
Today, I'll be stitching on my give-away piece. I love what I am working on and I hope the lucky winner will too! Don't forget to add a comment on this post to enter. No strings, just fun!
Well, I should go out and help the DH shovel...but......
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
