Icy and Snowy in Maryland

Two posts in two days - can you tell it is snowy and icy in Maryland and this transplanted Southerner is staying at home!!!! and stitching!!!!

First up, here are Parts 1 and 2 of the Romantique SAL, offered by Angie Designer. She is very talented and generous to offer beautiful projects for free. For this SAL, you have to show a picture of each part before you get another one. For this piece, I am using HDF in White Chocolate and various Enchanter Rose shades. The fabric is an unlabeled piece of 32 ct linen - it may be raw or dirty or natural???? At any rate, it looks like an old lace sampler - can't wait for the next part.

And here is my finished January ornament - this is The Red Noel Ornament by Maryse Dupont of Les grilles de Maryse from the November 2008 TGOSM. I stitched it a while ago; but I am counting it for this month since this is when I finish-finished it.

I love doing an ornament a month - it was such fun to have them to put on my tree this year. I signed up for this challenge again this year....
Well, I need to put DS to work walking the dog, and shoveling the walk.
Happy stitching! Margaret

Love the way the White Chocolate looks on that fabric! I'm using Vikki's white linen and have stitched the first part in Oil of Amber but I think it may be too yellow - I'm subbing Quinces for the E Roses.

Wish I could send you some of the sunshine I've been enjoying. It was over 80 today - way too warm for a Jan. day! Glad you could stay in and stitch.
