I live in Maine, so i should not complain about the winter; but gosh, it is just so darned long some years. This winter we have had so much snow. We just had a foot over the weekend, and another 10 inches is predicted for tomorrow and the next day.
I have gotten some stitching done these past couple of months. Here is my progress on The Things Sampler
I decided to restart my Dorothy Walpole Sampler. I just did not care for the way it looked on 36 ct linen with 2 strands of DMC. So, here is my RE-START on 40ct linen with 1 strand of DMC. I am so much happier now.
Victorian Motto Shoppe Giveaway
I bought myself a great birthday present.......a Kindle. I never thought I would like one, but I love it now. I got a nice purple leather cover for it, and am reading my first book called The Passage by Justin Cronin. If you read Stephen King's The Stand, check out The Passage.
I also found something I really would like to make for my daughter in law, and perhaps one for me too. My DIL lost her grandmother just 2 weeks ago, and I found these crazy quilt memorial pieces that I just love and want to make one with a picture of her grandmother in the center. I love doing all the fancy embroidery stitches, and have always wanted to make a crazy quilt, but just don't have the time now what with still working full time. This will be perfect, a 12inch X 12 inch piece, or something along that size, and framed. Wouldn't it be lovely? I already bought the photo to fabric transfer paper for my printer, and am gathering fabrics and threads to use. Here are a couple pictures I found for ideas.
I almost forgot to post this picture of my Grandson Benjamin taken on Feb 3rd. He turned 3 years old that day, and his daddy ( my oldest son Jon) was reading him one of the books he got.
Have a great week everyone and thanks for stopping by to visit.
