We woke up to several inches of snow today and it was cold, cold, cold (isn’t there a song in The Harvey Girls that goes something like that?)
I never did see the sun today but there was enough grey light to take a photo of this recent finish. Such pretty colors in this little design from Country Cottage Needleworks (Tea Shop). I started this on 28 ct lambswool but decided it was going to be much larger than I wanted it (after stitching the border and the house and the word ‘Tea’). My finish is stitched on 32 Lambswool Linen from Wichelt using all the called for DMC threads.
Speaking of cold and grey, this cranky little bird was out my window for quite a while this afternoon, he was trying to work up enough nerve to visit the feeder on my window while being watched closely by two anxious cats just on the other side of the glass. Yzma and Ophelia weren’t sure what to make of this burly little guy, I think he’s pretty cute.
This snow and cold has turned my mind to some Christmas stitching and there are some beauties in this new book from Blackbird Designs.
