Cold weather and cabin fever combine for quality stitching time.
Winter Rose Manor by Brenda Gervais got some attention. I filled in the roof and the basket. I changed my basket color to an off white as I did not like the yellow tones of Roasted Marshmallow. I am using DMC 950 for the house....so many of the called for colors are out of stock right now.
March word play also by Brenda Gervais is stitched and waiting in my craft closet to come out on March 1st.
April Word Play got a start basically because I was sick of winter and needed some bright colors. I have May and August to complete and I will have stitched all 12 months. This fabric was a blue with white clouds that I found at Hobby Lobby. I think it will be a pretty backdrop for the Spring Colors.
Easter House was also a small start. I have the Winter Houses by Waxing Moon in my stash so next year I will be adding one of those to my winter dough bowl.
I was trying very hard to stitch from stash but I saw this sampler and somehow it is in my cart at 123 Stitch.
Dark the Night and Wild the Wave
Christ the Boat is Keeping
Trust in Him and Have No Fear
Though He Seemeth Sleeping.
Oh what a Sampler for the times we are living in friends. According to the description the designer offers several color waves for this chart but I think this one is my pick.
And finally more work on Two Red Houses by Little House Needleworks. I got the tree finished and most of the fence. Now to start the alphabet and the border. And then to stitch it all again on the right side. This will be finished as a drum.
The weather seems to be calming down here. Most of the snow melted yesterday even though it was just in the high 30s. Prayers going out to all the Texas stitchers....what a time that great state has had this week.
