Valentine 2010

Hi, this is the heart I stitched for Valentines 2010. This is a freebie from Aury. It stitched it with HDF regular - Zumaque, BeFrogged, and a D-Bag pink on Vikki's 35 ct. ecru linen. I love the design - but I think the pink is too pale; and my tension is too tight for this soft, loosely woven linen. Maybe I'm too critical of my own work. My long term plan is to collect a bunch of hearts to decorate my Norfolk Island pine for Valentine's day.

We had more snow yesterday - they cancelled the Winter Storm warning in favor of a Blizzard Warning. In Baltimore, only emergency vehicles were allowed on the streets; and in Montgomery County, the road crews had to stop clearing the snow because it was too dangerous. We are out of work for the fourth day. Now, I love to stay home and just putter (DH doesn't understand this); but I have been home since last Friday, and I am ready to get out and go somewhere! The concept of eating at a restaurant is immensely appealing.

Well, it's time to feed the pellet stove, pour a cup of coffee, and settle into my stitching chair!

Happy stitching, Margaret

Hang in there, someone will come dig you out soon! Bet you're feeling claustrophobic. Keep feeding the stove and plying your needle.

What a pretty, delicate heart! And yes, the idea of eating out--even at McDonalds--sounds wonderful. I'm out of dinner ideas, so we'll have meatloat.

This is a nice little heart. I think I'll stitch it too during my heart SAL.
I also love being at home and puttering around. And not to forget the amount of stitching time one has when staying at home due to the weather.
