We awoke this morning to this winter wonderland outside of our kitchen window! The 1" or so of light snow called for by the forecasters for last night was, well... a little bit off! This time around it is the wet, heavy snow, as you can see by how well it is clinging to the trees out in my yard! I would be disgusted, but we do have warmer temps coming for next week (please, please be true!!) and a good amount of this will melt away!
While I had the chance today, I took a scan of my progress on Beneath the Stars - this is a whimsical little project by Dragon Dreams that I started sometime last year and put down to finish some larger projects. I recently made it into my "at work" project, for those times when patients don't come in and I don't feel like doing my paperwork. It has gotten a little bit of attention here and there over the past couple of weeks, and now I am feeling positively that I will be able to get this done quite soon. I am stitching it on the Dutch Blue Cashel as recommended by Jennifer (and this time, the scanner understood the color!), along with the recommended rayon floss...
I posted two items up on ebay today - I have not done that for some time now because bidding has been so slow over there, but today I figured I would give it a shot again. If you want to see, I listed SJ Designs - Peaches & Cream which includes the embellishment pack, and Moira Blackburn - Nobody Loves Me because I (oddly) have two of these, only need one
New freebie now available from
Victoria Sampler! Wow, two in a row all in less than a month! What a treat! This one, as you can see, is a pretty bookmark called "Friends Count" - so nice! Thanks again Thea!
My Silkweaver Solo for Fairy Moon came in today, and it is just gorgeous! They emailed me a couple of days ago, and the solo I ordered a week ago for Petal Fairy, as well as the Blue Fusion Expressions - 32 ct lugana I ordered because it is soooo pretty, are delayed because they overlooked my PayPal receipt.... so hopefully they will come in soon, as I really want to start that Petal Fairy SAL with Karen - getting started seems to be taking forever!
We went out to dinner tonight at Cactus Jack's, one of our all-time local favorites, and then picked up some new DVDs - Without A Paddle (too many of my clients and friends told me this one is funny) and, of course, NASCAR Nextel Cup Series 2004 because I must keep my collection complete, even though Ryan Newman had a lackluster year (I know 2005 holds something special for him, I can just feel it!).
I watched Shall We Dance? while I was stitching this afternoon. I was really pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed this movie! Richard Gere sure is aging well. It was a sweet story, with plenty of comedy too. I so highly recommend this movie! It was fairly easy to stitch to, but I did put my stitching down a couple of times during the early stages of dance lessons because they were so entertaining!
Stitched on today: Fairy Flora
