Good Morning! Cold January Days are perfect for stitching. I have spent a good bit of time in my stitching chair with my favorite Matilda Jane Blanket over my lap!! Cups of hot tea may have been sipped as well. I enjoy Green Tea but recently I cam upon Yorkshire Tea in the English foods section at Publix. Since my Tankersley relatives are from Yorkshire I thought I would give it a try. Oh Yum...it is a strong but mild tasting tea. It has become a new favorite.
I thought I would do a throw back stitch first this morning.
Rebecca was finished and framed. Some of you may remember I stitched this in honor of Rebecca and my ancestor, Samuel Aborn(e) who testified to her good character at her trial. One of my stitching friends said she liked the cute plaque above Rebecca. It says Take the Trip, Eat the Cake, Buy the Shoes. A gift from my good friend, Sharon. I told my friend, well in light of what happened to poor Rebecca maybe we should take that advice to heart!
Another finish for the dough bowl. February Square Dance by Heart in Hand. These are much smaller that I thought they were! Perfect for a small pillow. I did change the colors using some of my fancy floss. I stitched the February in a Royal Purple instead of the black that was charted.
I started my unicorn chart this week!
I have to share the sweet small I received at Retreat. This was part of an exchange the NoAla Stitchers participated in this year. Catie and Brenda are planning another one. It is fun to stitch something special for a friend. ( and a little intimidating as well in this group of great stitchers.)
I have spent some time working on my Snowmen triplets this week. I just have one to go. Maybe he will be a finish next week. Happy Stitching.
