Finished Winter Wienerland!

We had an inch of snow on the ground this morning.  I was thinking about going to work in a few hours, but 5 blocks from the house a car had overturned! I didn't want to risk it so I took leave and finished stitching Winter Wienerland.  Happy!

Now what will be the next project?

The packages are arriving!

La D Da's Spring Hare and Birdy Stitching Roll Kit arrived yesterday from ABC Stitch.  I really like the hare.  Reminds me of the White Rabbit from Alice in Wonderland.  I also got the stix for the flying pigs, but I don't have the chart ordered yet.

Three orders for Nashville goodies placed

Stitches 'n Things, ABC Stitch Therapy and Wasatch Needlework got my orders this time.  Drema at Needlecraft Corner will get an order after I get paid again. LOL. I like the new Shepherd's Bush A Tisket, A Tasket. I really love the mat set.  Way to go Jill!

The Wienerland half is done!

I just now put the last stitch in the right half of Winter Wienerland.  Now to blog about it about it rather than working on the left side.  It's a stitcher thing.  ;)

I'm getting the Lizzie Kate LE with the red fabric.  I think that will accent the piece nicely.  The other shop I ordered from sent an email that it mails to me tomorrow!  That's another good reason to work on the left side of Winter Wienerland.

Nashville market this weekend

I've placed a pre-order with Stitchesnthings; mostly for limited editions.  I buy almost every Lizzie Kate design so I've ordered two of her new ones sight unseen.  My fingers are crossed!! :)

My favorite new release is from SamSarah: When Pigs Fly.  What a hoot and a great use of the stix set.

14" with another 1"-4" overnight expected

The Snowchi storm covered the bumpers!  The dogwood tree looks beautiful with the snow on it.  They've predicted 60 degrees for next Friday.

I started Winter Wienerland yesterday and made decent progress today.  I bought it kitted up from Shepherd's Bush and they substituted Cherry Bark for Weathered Barn, but they did not indicate the change. It took some time to figure that out.  Stitching resumed.

SNOWCHI has started!!

We could get 8 - 14 inches of snow tonight. Ick.  It started around 6:45 PM and began to cover the windshield and roof of the car.

I hope to stay inside tomorrow and start stitching Winter Wienerland by Plum Street Samplers.  Sounds like a great idea!

Doritos time machine wins first half. IMHO

I watch the Super Bowl for the commercials. :)  I also liked Ian with Arnold, Lily the llama and Don Cheadle; and Ellen Degeneris with the wolves in the apartment.
