Back to Stitching!

Many thanks to all of you for your sweet comments about the game.  Here are my final thoughts for this season.  While this entire region is still talking non-stop about the game, it appears they are trying to be a bit more philosophical.  Yesterday was all moaning.  Today, they seem to be trying to understand why that play was called.  Anyway , they are a young team and I hope will grow from this experience.
 Today I am showing my latest project for that little oval antique frame I got last fall.  Vonna at "The Twisted Stitcher"  gave me a great idea.  During the holidays she talked about a sampler tree.  She suggested ways you could take a small motif from a larger sampler and make an ornament from it. I took designs from the BBD Anniversaries of the Heart series, Snow Garden, added a few snowflakes and there it was.  Now I am searching for a Spring design for that frame.  I plan on doing 4 different designs that I can change for the seasons.

 I did change the colors a lot from the original. It is stitched on 32 count Sand Dune linen by Lakeside Linens.

 I stitched this last year.  I made the color changes in the small design so it would look good with this one.

This is the grouping above the desk.

Thanks again for all your wonderful comments.  I think my cloud friends(that's the name my DH has given to all of you) are the best!!! Have a great week!

A Slow Recovery!

We are making a slow recovery from the game.  Everyone out here is very upset with the final call.  Lynch is one of the best, if not the best, running back in the NFL.  No one can understand why he was not given the ball with one yard to go.  Well, this is my final football post. I'm really done with it for awhile. Back to wonderful , calming stitching! Thanks for all the kind words you all sent!  I so appreciated them.
