Winter Biscornu Finish

So, I’ve slowed down quite a bit in my stitching lately. With being sick, the nice weather, and the good books I’ve been reading, I’ve been doing a lot of other things :) We have had the most beautiful weather, and it makes me so happy! The winters in Portland are dreary, drab and dark. It has been sunny, warm and inviting for the past week, and it’s just great. I recently finished The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield. I recommend it, it was a really well written book.

I do have another WIP picture on Old McMary’s. It’s great doing a SAL on this, because it makes me get it out to work on it :D I stitched more red, incase you couldn’t tell. It’s kind of nice to do this red, you don’t need to look at a chart, you just fill it all in. :) I may have to get another skein of that red though. All of the red you see it one skein, and I have one more. So… there is still quite a bit of red there to do.

I have a small finish too! I did a Barbara Ana pattern called Winter Biscornu. It is soooo cute. I am happy with it! I will have this chart up for trade if anybody would like to swap charts with me. Just let me know.

I stopped at my LNS (local needlework shop) Acorns and Threads last week. I had a great visit with the ladies who work there. I wish I could work there LOL! Even though they told me it is “bad” because you buy too much. I could see that ;)

I received Margaret’s NRR in the mail from Rowyn. It is so beautiful with the Victorian houses. I found a nice pattern for it, and will start on it soon.

So much to do! If only I can keep up! :D

Hi! It cracks me up that they told you of my blog at Acorns. :o) Thanks for stopping by, and commenting. Hope you don't mind if I stick around, you got some great stuff going on here.

::whispering:: They said on the news last night that winter is officially over for us. Don't tell anyone!

Is that biscornu one of Barbara Ana's patterns? It's so cute!

I haven't been stitching as much either. I wish I could read AND stitch at the same time.... Preferably somewhere in the sun! LOL!

The sunshine has been such a treat! We actually had rain yesterday morning, but the afternoon and today are gloriously springlike. :D

Turning a little green tho that you were able to drop in to Acorns and Threads. I think I could drive over to work a couple of Saturdays a month! :D It would cost me money, but what fun!

Hi, Heather. Vonna gave me the link to your blog so I could see your progress on the "Old MacMary" piece. Would you mind sharing what fabric and flosses you are using? Yours looks wonderful!!! It's been in my stash for a while now.

Also, I read Thirteenth Tale when it was released and I really enjoyed it, as well.

Thank you!

Old McMary's is coming along beautifully, Heather! I love the red... I must start stitching this one soon... I have always loved this chart!

Your winter biscornu is gorgeous... wonderful finishing as always!

You've have been so busy whilst I've been MIA... The Cape is beautiful and I love the Chicken/Rooster table runner you made for Marie... I am going to decorate my kitchen and dinning room in my new flat with chickens and roosters and I love it! :-)

Sunny is sooooo precious and adorable as are your sweet children! I am sorry to hear you have been sick Hun, and I'm happy to hear you are feeling so much better! :-)

Take care Sweety!!!
