I love a good snow day as much as the next person - especially if I don't have to get out in it, but seriously this is ridiculous! Fortunately DH is a hardy Mid-western stock, and ventures out regardless of the weather - perhaps he just can't face the idea of being cabin bound with me if I don't have milk for my coffee! This is my house after the first wave of snow last Wednesday night - we received another 4-5 inches in the next few days. It's beautiful today - the white is a nice contrast to the blue sky.
Here is the fearless Labrador - Emie loves the snow, despite finding it difficult to plow through!
One great thing about the snow is that I had a chance to finish my Valentine smalls for this year - this is a chart I found in my freebie notebook - I can't provide proper credit to the designer, but it is a very cute design.
This is Garden of Love by Citrouille's Designs. This was a project from the 2013 Year of Smalls blog. The fibers are Belle Soie and the fabric is a 36 ct Shale from PTP. The linen has a lavender cast to it - it's sweet in real life.
My ornament for February is Tis the Season, a kit by Shepherd's Bush. The ribbon and beads came in the kit, with instructions to do a wonky trim. After I got the hang of it, it is really easy to do and is a perfect finish for this project.
I have been enjoying the updates on the new releases at Nashville - I wish I could have one of everything. This is a banner year for new designs.
Until next time, happy stitching! Margaret
