A Finish

I know.  It has nothing to do with snow. But................  I have a finish and I wanted to share with you this great design by Cherished Stitches called the Quaker Halloween Sampler.  I started it in the fall but had to put it away for December - you know how crazy that month is.  I put the last stitches in while watching the Oscars Sunday night.  I love a finish.

Welcome Flakes?

There is nothing else to say.  This last storm has almost buried us but you can still see our sign peeking out from behind the snowbank.  We are still here...........barely.  On the other note we are getting some stitching done during these last storms.

This chart from Imaginating called Welcome Flakes is a great chart to stitch.  It would fit in with our Snowman Display coming up in March.  Drop off your finished pieces during March break and we will begin the display March 13th.  It will run through to March 24th.  Our first display item arrived today and we have him tucked in the snowbank till display time.  Have fun creating.
