I hope you are having a great day today. It's been a nice weekend so far. I went shopping and bought SHOES!!! Yay!
I finished up another ornament. It's Hot Cocoa from the 2013 Christmas Ornament issue. It's cute, I stitched it with good ol' DMC on 28 ct mushroom lugana. Now to finish it. I really like how Vonna from The Twisted Stitcher finished her ornament but I'm not sure. I don't often stitch from that magazine but I have every ornament issue from 1998. I will have to stitch more from past issues, really the ornaments are darling. The photography and sometime the finishing doesn't do the design justice I think. Just a tweak and a mediocre ornament can be elevated to something lovely.
Tonight starts Downton Abbey! How many of you will be watching? I went out and got some of the "dirt" on this season. It looks to be deliciously angst filled!
Well, I want to stitch this evening away, on what, I'm not sure. I signed up for the Snooty Parrots SAL and I am waffling on starting another WIP. I have so many going already that I feel so guilty starting another one. What to do, what to do!??? Football is on TV...looks cold in Green Bay. My Steelers didn't make it to the post season so I can just enjoy watching the game.
I will leave you with a couple of pictures that I took this morning of our barn and yard and the views surrounding us. The snow was so pretty. It's raining now and I know that it's going to be brutally cold on Tuesday. I keep telling myself only 10 more weeks and the weather will be getting warmer...I can last...right?
Well, my needle and fabric are calling. Now to decide just what to stitch!
Have a great evening!
