We Have Snow!
Here's Jeanne Love's Angel finished! Happy dance! I really like her, but as I said earlier, I'm not real happy with the backstitching. I will definitely use all brown for the backstitching next time! She will go to Love Quilts soon for Lynzee's quilt. I am going to stitch another angel for this little girl's quilt. They really needed more squares for hers. But I'm taking a little break from the charity squares.
Well, this time the weatherman was correct and we got SNOW! I love when it snows because I use it as an excuse to do NOTHING! Except cross-stitch! It's sleeting outside right now, but the snow is still beautiful. DD and her BF have been having a ball out in it!
I have been busy this morning kitting up some new projects. I'm going to do the chocolate-covered cherries freebie (I'm not sure where I got this pattern) for my mom for Valentine's Day. She loves them, but she has told us not to give her anymore candy because she doesn't want to gain any weight. I'm going to make it into a little pillow. I have a Whitman's Candy box that I am going to put it in to give to her. She loves Whitman's Chocolates, too. That way she will think I have given her candy and will be real surprised when she sees the pillow, and she won't have to worry about gaining weight! lol
I also put together the material and threads for Little Moon Welcome, another freebie that I got at www.brookesbooks.com. I am doing both of these on Monaco Tea 28 count material.
So today I'm going to work on Chocolate-covered Cherries for Mom and maybe work some on the Valentine Stamp for DD. I'm also going to do something for DD's BF for Valentine's Day. I just haven't decided what to do - I might do the Valentine Stamp for her, too. Haven't decided yet. Better go and fix us some lunch and get started stitching! Have a happy, warm day!
