Awaiting winter's return

I have not been stitching much - rather I have been spending my time cruising the yard- looking for green shoots of daffodils pushing their noses out - all other green things get eaten by the herd of venison-on-hoof that have invaded my yard. I even washed my car by hand on Friday. So, you can imagine my surprise when I heard the weather forecast this morning - 1 - 2 inches of snow/sleet tonight. Well the surprise has turned to alarm when I heard an update - now they're predicting 3 - 5 inches!!! Seriously?????
I do have some updates:
Here is my latest start. This is "I Sigh Not", a sampler that was published in Sampler and Antique Needlework. I am using the recommended fabric and Hand-Dyed Fibers premium silk. I am loving this project!
And here is my February ornament: "Cardinal Winter" by LHN. I used mystery silks for the DMC, and I used the recommended fabric and Crescent Colors. I changed the word from "
Tweet" to "Joy". Tweet reminded me too much of Twitter....

I really hate to hear the weather forecast- my son's high school musical is next weekend, and they are rehearsing every day this week - if we get snow, that will really crimp their rehearsing. I'm sure the show will be fabulous anyway - it always is. My son plays in the orchestra - so no memorization or costumes.

Till next time - happy stitching! Margaret

I must say I like 'joy' better than 'tweet' also! It's really cute Margaret. Good luck with the weather - hope it passes by soon!
