An Olympic Finish!

Thanks so much to all of you who enjoyed seeing  the family treasures. When we finally decide where to display them, I'll show you in a post.  Right now they are hanging in my craft room.  I am enjoying them a lot. I did get my Olympic project done on Sat. evening.  That was one night before the Closing Ceremony.   Paper snowflakes was such a pretty stitch.  Now I will be putting it away until next winter.  We have had a much milder winter than many of you, but I'm still ready for spring!

"Paper Snowflakes"  by Country Stitches- With Thy Needle and Thread. I used 32 count antique ivory linen and the floss that was called for.  The only exception was the white.  I used Oatmeal by GA.  It seemed brighter than the Weeks Parchment.  This was the first time I used Valdani floss.  I loved the colors.  The reds are so much prettier than they show in this photo.

 We have had several days of rain.  I took these pictures one morning while I was sitting in my family room having coffee.  The little Annas seems to be saying, " Is it raining again??"

You can see the raindrops on its little beak and on its back.  I'm glad we had some delicious sugar water for this little bird.
Thanks for joining me.  I hope you are all enjoying your week!
