Icy Weekend and a Sick Day

We had some freezing rain and sleet on Friday, which left the weekend wide open for stitching.

I was able to finish up block 5 on Village of HRH.  

I didn't want to start block 6 until some new floss organizers came in the mail, so I started a long awaited project, the Beatrix Potter Quaker Sampler from Needleprint.

I was able to get 3 motifs stitched.  The colors in the photograph are bit off, the yellow is more golden and the brown is more of a milky chocolate.

Yesterday my order of Annie's Thread Keepers came, so I will start block 6 soon.  Notice the small hand, someone is always curious.  She also stole the catalog you see there and took it off somewhere for herself. (future stitcher?)

Somebody had a sick day yesterday and had to sit with momma all morning.

Snow Day!

North Carolina finally had a snow day!The little one didn't like going outside while it was snowing, but with some help from daddy she managed to crunch around a little. 

She's holding a little bit of snow, not quite sure what to think.

I am happy to say that I finished Feast of Friendship this past Saturday.  I started this piece as an "easy" project to take down to FL during the holidays. It took me a little longer than I thought, I blame the big blue house (it was my white whale).

But the beautiful colors made it all worth while.  There's something about Blackbird Designs....I've already purchased Violet's Blue.  :-P

And I picked up my Hawk Run Hollow again.  There was something very comforting about starting up again.  Like being with an old friend.  

And my teeny tiny progress on my SL ABCD 1851

Thanks for stopping by and a big welcome to a few new followers.  :D
