Mid-February Update


That's me up there, shaking my head in disbelief.  I was so excited to show you the stocking finish in the last post that I forgot to share a picture of this AMAZING pillow that showed up in my mailbox last week from Carol!  She sent it along with a chart I had lent her.  Oh my, I was THRILLED!!  Her workmanship is amazing and her friendship is treasured!!

THANK YOU, Carol!!!

In stitching news...  I've continued to work on my Stoney Creek Oh Holy Night in the mornings.  Here's my progress for this week...


I worked on the Precious Moments piece for a couple of nights...


But then I had an "I want to work on aida" night when I just needed something easier to work on with no fractionals and easier counting, so I started a piece I've had in my stash for awhile from an older Cross Country Stitching magazine.  Now that I've started it - on my absolute favorite fabric to work on... 16 count natural aida... I don't want to finish the Precious Moments piece.  I just want to work on this instead!!  Oh, well!  They are both from my stash, so I guess stash progress is stash progress!! : )


I hope you all have a Happy Valentine's Day!

Thanks for stopping by!

Tricia

What a lovely little pillow from Carol. I love the motive and the finishing ery much.
I love Cross Country charts. A lot. And the one you started is no exception. It's time that I start one myself again.

I'm in awe of those big detailed WIPs you have going on, Tricia!! They are all so special. And I'm so glad my little pillow made you smile :) My mom was looking at my blog post the other day and she told me that the little Winter pillow was her favorite of the ones I showed! I sure hope Winter is on it's way out, but based on our forecast, it looks like the frigid temperatures will be with us a bit longer... Stay warm, my friend!
