So on the day after Christmas when we got our first snow fall I unearthed this gem - Snow Day by With thy Needle & Thread.
Another sampler with a GIANT figure towering over everything. I LOVE that! I also excavated this piece of linen from my stash. I don't have any idea what it is other than it is 30 ct. and it is hand-dyed and is a lovely light olive-y brown-y color. All the flosses came out of my stash - DMC and a bit of Weeks for his nose. I'm thinking of adding a alphabet line at the bottom and making this a sampler. I'm planning on adding this to my winter display along with my finished Lizzie Kate Winter Alphabet (you can see it here) and my finished Boughs of Holly which is another WTN&T piece (which can be seen here). I got a great coupon in the mail the other day for Micheal's framing - 60% off plus an additional $10 off and Joann's will honor this coupon. Should be a very reasonable price.
On Friday I talked about how I reviewed by knitting accomplishments for 2012 and today I can speak to my cross stitch finishes. According to my tally I completed 15 cross stitch projects. Six of which - 40% - were Blackbird Designs. I'm seeing a definite bias - LOL! Now I also looked back and saw that I planned on finishing this...
BBD Anniversaries of the Heart. I'm almost halfway done, sort of, kinda. I haven't done any personalization on this yet. (some of these are kinda fuzzy - sorry!)
I do know that I will put my oldest son's birth date in this block for January.
And my youngest son's birth date will go in this block for April - love those tulips.
This block is for August. I need to get both my Mom's and my Grandma's birth dates in here.
And this one is September, my birth month. I have added the chicken (it was graphed for a dog) and the house is yellow, so I have done some personalization here. The real incriminating information (year of birth) will follow -LOL!
So I have completed a lovely number of samplers and started
So on this New Year's Eve eve my wish for you and for me is lots of crafty time in 2013!
