Month 2 update--Dede

Slow month.  I didn't get quite as much done as I had hoped.  Finished the large deer and basket and a couple smaller motifs.  Hopefully this weekend I can finish page 1.

I also spent some time working on a couple other projects too and put together a finish.  I had stitched it last fall but just finally got brave enough to put it together.  Love the look and will see if I can find some antique zinc lids to make a few more for gifts. (Liberty Starlet by Summer House--Kit included the zinc lid.  32 ct. Conferderate Gray by WDW, floss GA Freedom & Country Redwood).

Winter is holding on here in Kansas.  We had a week of pretty darn cold weather for this time of year--as in at least 20 degrees lower than our usual Feb..  Currently we had a couple days of" the storm is coming, the storm is coming!"--predicted as much as 9 inches in a 24 hour period.  This morning it is down to 2 -3 inches....sigh.  The bright spot is that we will be having 5o degrees by next weekend. Spring is coming!


  1. Wonderful progress, Dede :-) I love your little finish. It's been exceptionally cold here in Texas, too; we got a couple of inches of snow. That's a lot for us! Stay warm and keep repeating, "Spring is coming, spring is coming!"

  2. Lovely progress and a very lovely pincushion, well done!
    Evalina, This and that...

  3. What awesome progress! I love how your huge project is divided in so many cute little motifs ^_^
