Snow Storm and Cross Stitch

Our snow storm has morphed into an ice storm. We have not had an ice storm since we moved here 8 years ago. Our house is 350 feet above the sound so we are actually getting more snow than ice. South of the city(Seattle) is very bad. One stretch of road 22 miles is closed because 25 trees or branches have fallen . 170,00 houses have no power. We are still ok. Our daughter and son-in-law are suppose to catch a flight tomorrow morning.(I've had their wonderful Woolpets on this blog many times). They are going to a trade show in Arizona. This is important to their business so we hope they will get out and be safe!!! I have a few fun snow pictures and a cross stitch update!

This is a stone wall near the garden.

Our daughter-in-law gave us this tree face a few years ago.

Our back yard.

One good thing-lots of time to stitch. The Grandparents sampler is all done!! I didn't really like all the over one !!! I decided I'll be careful choosing patterns with lots of over one!!

Remember the vase I frogged( ripped out), I like this much better!

This is an old pattern I found on e-bay. I thought it would look cute for Valentines time(month of Feb.)

I chose my own colors. The letters are stitched with Atlantic Blue Range 923 and 928. The hearts will be Clove range 626. I love the 626 color. I have used it in lots of patterns.

Not sure who SM was but she stitched a cute little sampler!
Thanks for taking a look and have a great day.


  1. What a nice presentation of Snow Storm through Cross Stitching.This one is really a nice creation ,i like it.

  2. Glad you guys are safe and warm!
    Beautiful finish :) and I love the new start.

  3. Stay warm dear, I remember the ice storm of 2007 in Missouri, 8 days without electricity and freezing cold. At least we could put our refrigerator items out in the snow. It was so cold and our yard looked like a war zone. I love your cross stitching. You are very talented.
