Week Thirty-Nine: Woodland Snowfall
Hi everyone! Hope you all had a great week with lots of stitching time. I worked more hours than usual this week so only had time for a quick stitch. This is actually the second time that I stitched this piece. The first one was given to a friend for a Christmas gift, but this one is just for me. This LHN piece is called "Woodland Snowfall" and can be found in the 2004 JCS Christmas Ornament issue. I used a khaki colored 18-ct. davos fabric with DMC threads.
Because this was such a quick stitch this week, I actually had time to finish Woodland Snowfall into a little ornament (I know--you're shocked!). I backed it with the holly fabric shown in the background, added a rope hanger, and some tiny holly leaves for decoration. I just love the little woodland squirrels with their berries in hand. Although I'm not so crazy about them when they get into our bird feeders...
I know that I owe several of you emails and will attempt to get caught up this weekend. In the good news department, my foot is much, much better and I was even able to log a few miles on my treadmill this week. Finally... Can't wait to read your blogs and catch up with everyone this weekend!
