It snowed!

Got some snow yesterday evening, but not as much as expected.  Thought we might get more snow this evening, but hubby came home from his fishing trip a day earlier than expected, so the snow will probably be delayed til tomorrow,  It's hard to see in the picture as the thread is almost the same color as the fabric.  I thought the fabric would be dark enough, but....

Almost done!

I took a couple of days off from the crossstitch to do other things.  Pulled it back out this afternoon.  Made good progress.  Tomorrow I will make it snow!

Stitchy Saturday

I made more progress yesterday.  We had a quiet day at home.  Cowboy was gathering his stuff for his camping trip later this week.  I spent the day reading and stitching.  I took out the name and moved it to the left one stitch.  I was going to leave it, but it nagged at me, so I redid it.  Sigh.  No one but me would have noticed it was a stitch off.  But since I am the one who will have to live with it, I guess I better make myself happy!

Making progress

Spent a couple of hours stitching while Cowboy ran errands, buying stuff for his camping trip next week.  I was not particularly keen on going to Bass Pro Shop and Sports Authority, so sent him out on his own and I got to stay home and stitch!  Later I took him to Texas Roadhouse for Father's Day dinner, as he works on Sunday.

New Project

I started a new crossstitch project this afternoon.  It's not like I don't already have a ton of projects started, patiently waiting their turn to be completed.  But these are small, so maybe I will actually finish them.
They use Crescent Colours and DMC.  There are 4 in the series so far.  The designer finished hers as stand-alones, wrapped around sytrafoam blocks.  I am thinking I will finish them flat and hang them like a banner.  I have limited tabletop surfaces on which to display stuff.  So far I am enjoyong the project.  This is about 3 hours of work.  Somehow it doesn't seem like much.
