First Post Of 2012

2012 wow! I feel like I went to bed on Halloween and I woke up the middle of January. Time is flying by way to fast. I hope that everyone had a wonderful Christmas. Did that Jolly Old Elf bring everything that was on your want list? I am sure that he did. The new year has been quiet and an icky brown here in upstate NY. The temperatures have been unseasonably warm. No snow UNTIL TODAY. It is very messy out with a rain/ snow mix event. Most schools in the area were closed today. Tonight the temps are dropping and we have ice everywhere. I have been wanting snow. It reminds me to be careful what I wish for.

This is a project that I started at the very end of last year. It is a BBD Woodland Berries. It is stitched on 32 ct Light Vintage Examplar fabric and I am using the called for colors in silk. It is a bonus pattern in with the Loose Feathers Summer pattern. I am enjoying working on this fabric and very happy with the progress I have made. I like the size of this project. I have decided that I am going to work on a few smalls for a change. My last several projects have been good size samplers (which I love) but I need a quick finish. I have several picked out but I need to finish this one up first. Then, of course, market is in February and I will probably change my mind again because I am sure that there will be a hundred new patterns out there that I will have to have!
I will be back soon to show you a few finishes and some beautiful gifts that I received from my stitching friends. Enjoy your weekend. Here in the US it's a long one. I hope that you find time to do lots of whatever makes you happy. I am going to be putting the last of Christmas away and inside stitching. It's going to be very cold here this weekend. Take care.

There is something to be said for hibernating esp. now that you have snow :)
That's a beautiful design and you're making great progress on it.
