Hello, Stitching Friends! Is it freez-y cold where you are? We have had several winter storm warnings, but only a bit of ice and not a single flake! The winds are cold coming off the mountains, and I have been stitching or playing Settlers of Catan with the family. Hektor has not been happy that he alone must go out into the cold to do his business.

This week I started "A Pennsylvania Bird" by Elizabeth's Garden. I had no idea about this designer until I saw the charts pop up on e$ay while searching for Carriage House Samplings.



I have not quite finished the Mary Beale I was working on - I just really do not want to do that last wing on the angel. Maybe I can force myself to work on it sometime this weekend. After all, the reward for finishing a piece is to start a couple new ones, right? ;)

Your WIPs look great! Yes, you're definitely right about the rewards of finishing one piece--you MUST start at least two new pieces. ;)

Two very pretty pieces. I especially love the bird. I've never seen that one before.

Great projects! The bird is lovely. You are almost done with the angel, too, so hang in there! Two new projects should be your reward!
