Two Posts in Two Days

You're going to think I'm running a fever - two posts in two days! Truth is, I am kind of run down with the "crud"; it's forced me to slow down and stay home this weekend. Actually, it's a good weekend to be at home. We are finally receiving some snow here in Minnesota - about 12 inches so far and it's still snowing! Here's a picture of the trees behind our deck.



This weekend is the Christmas Ornament SAL and I was so excited to have time to participate. I received this lovely pattern from Barbara and have been looking forward to stitching it. The design is from The Needle's Content and it's called Christmas Ornament 2001. I used the indicated WDW fibers and stitched it on a piece of 28ct linen (Desert Sand) from my stash.



I'm hoping to spend some time this afternoon/evening stitching on my Game Board Sampler from The Drawn Thread. It's been neglected for a few weeks. Kim recently finished hers and it looks fabulous!

Have a great day! Thanks for visiting!

I just love how the ornament came out, Cathy! I actually bought two of these at the same time, I liked the chart so much - I'll have to do mine for next month's SAL! LOL!!

Your backyard looks like a true winter wonderland. From where I'm sitting, it's so beautiful. I'm jealous!

How nice you have used the design that Barbara sent you for the SAL. He is very handsome especially with the heart on his chest :) I don't know what 'the crud' is but I hope you feel better soon!
