Hopefully, I can post some of the pictures I took really soon, but I thought it was more important to post photos of what I've been working on during our epic snowstorm. Maryland is a beautiful place to live 11 months out of the year; February gets a little rough. Between 11:30 Friday and 4PM yesterday, we got the most snowfall ever in this area. 21 to 26 inches in our yard, up to 32 inches elsewhere. There have been 3 storms this week, they're calling for another on Tuesday, maybe one this weekend. One of the agents I was working with was complaining they've had three snow storms since Christmas where she is. I told her we had three storms in a week, and I did the Plunge in one of them. That kind of quieted her down. Fortunately, the sun is shining, my car is almost dug out--the dogs were helping me and I had to shoo Shocka out of it, and yell at both of them for eating snow--and we have a truck that will get us out if we need to go anywhere, and Spring is here in 6 weeks.
OK, to let you know that I have been stitching, I have photos.
Fa La La, by Plum Pudding Needlearts, off their website. I think he's very cute, and a pretty finish. I am glad I managed to accomplish reversing my stitching like I did. It was an effort, and not sure how much I'll be doing that in the future. Me old brain just don't like being messed with anymore. DF made coffee this morning, so I'll be dyeing the backing fabric with it.
And my efforts on Sheepish Designs' Betsy. I think I am making awesome progress on this. It's a fun stitch, and not giving me a lot of hassle. Though I do have to say, I won't be really happy til I have the two sides of the tree joined from top to bottom. When I start and come together like that, it always makes me a bit antsy. I'm using DMC on 28 count buttermilk Jobelan, which is a really pretty fabric and nice to work on. The chart is OOP, but I did see that Em-li's had it listed on her site. Worth a shot if you like the chart, and a lot cheaper than E-bay.
Going to run for now. Not much happens when we're snowbound. We're planning on taking it easy with some chili tonight and watching the Superbowl. I'm torn. I wish the Saints would win, but I also like Hank Baskett of the Colts, so it's hard to choose. I guess I'll just enjoy the ads.
