OK, with screwing up my back shoveling snow on Wednesday and lots of quality time with my heating pad then Thanksgiving and more quality time with my heating pad, I totally spaced on the 2014 Smalls SAL on the 26th.
"Merry Christmas 2014"
Designed By: Me
Stitched on 28 count Grey Blue evenweave using DMC threads, #4 Kreinik to outline the snow, Mill Hill Petite beads in red, white and blue and three gold stars for the tree tops.
Didn't know which picture to use, neither one seems to show the Kreinik or the beads and stars very well. Maybe after I finish it as a wall hanging or framed they'll show up better.
Well that's all for today everyone, I hope all that celebrated had a great Thanksgiving, ours was quite with only the big guy and I. Our dogs each got a Thanksgiving bowl with ham, smashed potatoes and gravy, deviled eggs, stuffing and veggie. they were very happy boys.
Thought I would share one more Christmas chart for you to stitch.
Designed by: yep you guessed it, Me.
I'm trying to come up with a Hardanger design to share, but don't have the ability to show how-to's for the different stitches, so it would be for those experienced with Hardanger.
So many designs swirling around in my head, I almost don't know where to start.
On a more irritating note we got this, when the Weather Channel said "Only 1 inch"
That ended up being 5 inches more than their 1 inch. Yeah right, when it was all over and done with we ended up with 10 inches total of that fluffy white crap beautiful snow. Monster loved it and wanted to go outside every half hour just so he could eat some and lay around in it, crazy German Shepard.
Here he is, in the house pouting cause Mom said he had to warm back up, he is at least 14 years old and on glucosomine and baby aspirin for his joints, but does he care, heck no, all he wanted was to spend the day out in it or on the back porch with the outside door open so he could watch it snow. He just loves gettin' his chilly on.
Well that's all for now everyone. So until next time, thank you so much for stopping by and leaving your thoughts behind.
It's a day past time for my 2014 Smalls SAL, so here it is ......
Designed by me, stitched on 28count hand-dyed Evenweave using DMC threads.
This will be made into an ornament for the tree or wreath. Which ever get's put up this Christmas.
I've been in a very "Primitive Backwoods Cabin" kind of mood as of late so most of the pieces I'm designing and stitching are in that mode. I have been enjoying coming up with all of the Pine Trees, Pine Boughs and Cones and Cabin's though and it does help that our home is a Log Cabin.
Well that's it for today friends.
Thanks so much for stopping by and until next time ......
