2014 Smalls SAL Update !!

It's the last Wednesday of February and time for my 2014 Small Stitch-A-Long update.

Since it's February, I stitched up two Valentine smalls.
First up is my version of the Valentine Freebie I posted for everyone. 

I finished this up on Feb. 13th and left it for my DH to find on his keyboard in the morning before going to work.

"Be My Valentine"
Designer: Sandra D. Longan {A.K.A. Sandy In Montana}
Stitched on 28ct. Evenweave lightly hand-dyed by me after stitchin', backed with dark red 14ct. Aida and fringed.
Thread used: 115 DMC Variegated Red {My fave color of floss}
I changed it quite a bit from the original, as I stitched it I just didn't like all of the hearts.

"Love Never Fails"
Stitched on 28ct. Evenweave that was hand-dyed around the outside edges of the design and left to fade inward to give a slightly aged look to the piece. 
Thread used: Light Mauve and Dark Mauve hand-dyed threads, dyed by me and DMC variegated #53.

Were getting a two day warm up into the 30's before it crashes back down into the single digits. We go shopping on Saturday and it's going to be -5 degrees, time to pull out my thermal under's and down coat.

 That's it for today, thank you so much for stoppin' by and leaving your thoughts behind.

Take Care & Happy Stitchin' Everyone
Hugs, Sandy

More SNOW !!!

Ok cabin followers, if you have kept up with my blog you know how much it just adore SNOW {insert totally sarcastic expression}. Well, this time our weather man did not lie to me at all. We ended up with 10 inches of that fluffy white crap. 

Here are a couple of pics.

Here's the Monster {Cody} outside enjoying it all.
The snow next to him is trampled down from him laying in it, 
even while it was snowing he would lay out there and get covered.

Our bird feeder outside my craft room window, complete with little birdie.

 Well, that's all for now. Thanks for stopping by.

Take Care, Happy Stitchin' & Keep Warm Everyone
Hugs, Sandy
