Let it snow???

Even though we've had frequently more tastes of spring, it's still winter and there's a new layer of snow out to prove it! The beauty of spring snow around here is that it melts quickly and before you know it, everything has turned green! In celebration of the last of winter...

Winter Symphony by Little House Needleworks,
Just Cross Stitch Feb 2008
Fabric: 28ct blue Monaco, 2 0ver 2
Fibers: as charted except for
DMC 3865 in place of Crescent Colours bamboo


Speaking of birdies, there is one who asked for a preview of something I've been working on (that really should've been done by now!) Can you guess how this'll be finished???

As you can probably tell, it's a design by Diane Williams (I think before she was known as LHN, published in Tokens of Affection~book 19 of the Leisure Arts series Christmas Remembered.)


And a BIG, BIG thank you to everyone for such a warm welcome to the blogging world!!! It was so exciting to receive each of your sweet comments. {{BEAR HUGS}} to all of you!!!


Enjoy the downhill ride to the weekend!

WS looks lovely, and makes me think that spring is on the horizon even though it's supposed to be a winter piece. And I just love that Diane Williams design - so pretty! It's so nice to have you blogging and showing your work.

Staci-
It looks like you're going to finish that as a floss ring tag. Could that be it? I would so love to see instructions on that finishing technique sometime!!
