Finally, a post

I haven't posted in a long time, so I'm way overdue. I started a new job 2 weeks ago and I am very overwhelmed with the amount of responsibility I now have. I also have some things going on in my personal life that have me feeling down, so haven't been doing much stitching.
But here is what I've been working on. Mainly I've been working on his cape but it's white and tan so difficult to see the progress I've made.

I was fortunate to win Cathy B's giveaway. These are the L*K seasonal scissor fob patterns. Thank you, Cathy!!
Now I'm going to show you the amount of snow we have. The first picture is my husband standing in our driveway.
Here is a picture taken from the driveway looking at the house.
Spring, please get here soon.
Below are my February goals and amazingly I met them all :)
1. Work on Once Upon A Time - Done
2. Finish a motif on Quaker Halloween - Done
3. Finish a motif on Paradigm Lost - Done
4. Finish Part IV on St. Petersburg White Nights - Done
5. Frame "Friendship" - Done
6. Frame "Noah" - It's at the framer's so I can call it done.
7. Find some Spring/Easter patterns - Done
8. Organize the Christmas Ornies I want to stitch - Done
I still have the "worm" in our network. Sometimes I can leave comments on your posts and sometimes not. Please know I'm reading your posts!!

Oh my - that is a lot of snow! Reminds me of our snow last year. We did not have as much this year - but, oh, the cold and the winds were bad! Your progress is great - that is going to be one beautiful piece! What cute fob patterns! You know, you'll just have to buy seasonal scissors to match!

Cole said...

Isn't the snow insane??? We've had a crazy amount here too, and it's snowing again today!

Those fobs are so cute! Congrats on your win :)

Congrats on meeting your goals, hugs.

Ok, where do you live? I just looked -- wow! That is a whole lot of snow! And none of it has melted yet? We had a lot too, but not that much, and tons of it has melted now. I hope yours melts soon too. That's ridiculous! I guess you can't look out your basement windows?

Lovely stitching too! And nice prize you won!

Beth said...

Congratulations on finishing your February goals!! Your piece is looking better and better. My son, who lives in Maine, has told me about youralls snow, but a picture is much more effective. WOW!!

I hope you're feeling brighter soon {{{hugs}}}

Oh my gosh - you still have these heaps of snow. Unbelievable. But I hope that the sun will be burning it all away as soon as possible.
Great WIP!

Carol said...

That is a crazy amount of snow!! I thought ours was bad last winter, but it wasn't nearly that high :)
