Well I made it this time. There was no snow and it was a lovely day to sit at my LNS in Cochrane and just stitch. I made some new friends which was great! And got some stitching done (and was bad and got some new stash)
My first priority was to get a large section of Dragons done. I worked until it was complete. Here is dragons after the last two weeks plus my twelve hour of progress, section I worked on:
Full piece to date:
I also picked up Romantic Rose Garden in the afternoon. I got one new area of the motif done. This piece has stitches and things I have never encountered... so I am finding it good but challenging. Thank goodness that one of the ladies that runs my LNS was there to advise on how to tackle it! Here it is so far:
And last but not least, I needed a break in the evening, so I pulled out Stitch or Die. I am still a bit disappointed in the coverage on this one. Maybe it's because alot of it was stitched at the hospital... not sure. But it's okay it's not like it's huge or a gift or for competitions, just for my stash corner so I will live. Here it is so far:
I also got three new patterns while I was there. The two latest in the ornaments from LittleHouse Needlworks:
And this other pattern that I am just in love with. It's Book of Spells from Good Huswife. I just love it!
Thank you to everyone for your kind comments about Kihone. She will be missed. It's weird walking into the computer/snake room and seeing only two tanks with snakes and hers empty. But time heals lots of things and I already feel better than I did about the whole situation.
Coming soon... another giveaway, probably after Easter, but if I get to figuring it out beforehand it will be sooner.
