Now what?

I finished up the Cross-eyed Cricket 12 days series. Really need to stash dive to come up with a larger project to do. Until then I'm going to work on Blackbird designs Snow Garden....I started it over one last night but after a little bit I think I want to do it full sized, so will restart it.
Here are the last 2 pear ornaments.

After finishing CEC 9 drummers drumming....look what I saw in my backyard....I know they are huge but it's my first time seeing one in person....He's @ 1 foot tall and so beautiful.

And here is Drawn Thread's March cover. I switched out the fabric and the Dinky Dyes for SNC

Happy President's Day

Today is a cloudy/rainy day here so a great day for doing things inside. Enjoying watching the rain wash all the winter salt and mess off everything. I'm keeping busy doing some cleaning, laundry and will settle down to stitch this afternoon & watch the Blues hockey game.
Here are two more with only 2 left of the CEC 12 days pears. Most are way cuter than the leaflet shows...shop models are what made me decide to stitch them.

It's spring-like outside

and I'm still stitching Christmas. I'm on the halfway point to finishing all 12 days of Christmas.
Here are CEC Four Colly birds and Five golden rings....I always thought it was 'calling' birds...I guess these are just another take on them. I think they are all cute anyway.

Warmer days ahead

We are to have about a week of 40 degrees + with several in the 50's. Hopefully most of this ice and snow will melt.
Here are 2 more finishes in the Cross-eyed Cricket 12 days series. This leaflet is called On the first day...

How many days till Christmas?

LOL, I don't even WANT to start counting. LOL But I am working on the CEC 12 days series. Here is #12 & #1. This is one of those series I wanted to do but kept putting it off. I will be so happy when I get to finish them and display them this next Christmas though I'm not rushing to finish them. They are an easy quick stitch though.

So much to stitch

I just can't decide on a large project to do, even though I have a wip that I lost interest in. Oh well, I know I'll get back to it...in the meantime I decided to work on some of my many Cross-eyed cricket charts....this is the 12 days series...these 2 are from My true love gave to me.

Well, the snow amount was less(that's fine with me)than predicted but the winds were horrid all night long. We ended up with 9" of the white stuff and man is it cold out there. I plowed the driveway 3 times yesterday and this morning. It's enough to get in and out now and now that they opened up the major highway across the state.

Still waiting

for the Blizzard we are to get today with our 8-24" of snow to come. Yesterday we got the ice pellets and it isn't too bad but bad enough for schools to be closed.
I stitched off & on most of the day while also getting everything in the house caught up in case we lost power. I started and finished By the Bay Frostys Tree Trimmers. There are 4 different hatted snowmen in the pattern, I liked the one without the hat. The pattern is going in my sale album on the tab above or my photobucket link for all my sale stash & finishes.
