Latest Project Update

I have been stitching! and enjoying it too.  Spent most of the day working on BBD's Winter Wonderland.  Here's my progress:

I was happy to get that roof finished.  So, onward and downward on the design.  Hopefully I will get it finished in time to have it framed for Christmas!

I sent off my latest exchange piece.  I'll show it to you now, I just won't tell you who I stitched it for.  It's Lizzie Kates' Sampling Christmas.  I used the recommended thread and a 32ct opalescent fabric.  I enjoy stitiching these little samplers. I do not understand why the bottom right hand corner of all my pillows are more pointed than the the other corners.  I wonder what I could be doing that causes this.
It rained in OK this afternoon.  Sorry to say it did not amount to much, and managed to make the weather more humid.  Thank goodness for air conditioning.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.  I believe I'll work on a small Christmas project.
