I am so excited

In my last post I made mention of the pattern that I was desperately looking for it is Stars for a New Millennium by Tony Mineri. well I am so happy to say I have found, bought, and received the pattern. I went to my LNS and spent 3 hours choosing the fibers. Brought them home and now after laying them out and looking at them for about a week I have decided 9 of the colors I do not care for. I can not believe that I chose those colors but at the time I thought......well okay. So hopefully Thursday I will be able to get up there again and exchange out the colors for ones I am happier with. I am then going to wait until after Christmas to start on this as I want to clear away a few of my current WIPS in my rotation.

I had a wonderful, quiet, enjoyable Thanksgiving day. Just hubby, dogs and cat; the day after I decorated for Christmas just as I have for the last 29 years. As some of you who come and read my blog may recall I have an obsession with snowmen. I collect them and stitch them and love them. I even got a tattoo of one, something I never would have imagined doing.  Well this is the time I get to pull out all of my collection along with my other Christmas decorations.

I have 2 trees one for snowmen and other ornaments. But mainly snowmen. The second tree is my Disney ornament tree. 

 These little cuties are suncatchers and they dance all through the day sitting on the sill of the front window. 
 And these are the 2 stitching projects I have finished so far.

Now on to my stitching. In the Wipocalypse I mentioned the Christmas Tree Canvas that was gifted to me. Well I went up and got the canvas onto stretcher bars the same time I kitted up the Stars pattern and got started. I am going to do this twice. The first will be gifted to my daughter next Christmas. Then I will do one for myself in blues and silvers to match my decor.

Worked on just about all of my WIP's I finished the first of 6 snowmen by Joan Elliot. I have all but finished Joy by Kelly Clark, I only have the leaves, and a bit of background right at the top of the bauble. I got the inner circle of Harvest Ala Round by Glendon Place complete and Poof by Ursula Michaels is really looking good.

Finally I am now on page 20 of my HAED Christmas Cottage by Dona Gelsinger I am so happy with my progress for this year I may not get this row finished but it will be close.
That completes this update. I hope you are all enjoying your last few weeks before the Christmas festivities.

  1. That's quite a snowman collection! They're so cute and I can see why people collect them. Your progress is great on everything. I've had my eye on that Harvest Ala Round design, it's so pretty.
