How are we in February, my first post of the year




 I finished stitching my stocking Gardeners Delight.
Kooler designs.  This was done on 14ct Aida by
Picture this plus. It's beautiful and I am debating
Which fabric to finish it with.
 This is by cottage garden
Songbirds series #4
Promise of spring Hope.
Stitched on 32ct spellbook Jobelan by Colourandcotton.com
The framed I purchased at Hobby lobby 50 
Percent off.  It fit perfectly.  I laced and finished
It myself.  Don't you  love the butterfly?


 I started embroidery this year and love it.
I have a subscription to Punchneedle &
Primitive Stitcher.   In my opinion the best
Magazine on the market.  This is a punchneedle pattern.
Summer 2007 issue.  Petals and pins by Julie Thomas
I trace the pattern and embroider instead of doing
Punchneedle.  I am trying not to go down that
Rabbithole.  Embroidery is much quicker then cross
Stitch and it gives me a break in between large cross
Stitch pieces.  This is a gift.
 This embroidery pattern is from
The December/christmas issue 2018
Pattern is chilly chums .
I love cardinals and this piece makes  me smile.
 My son Christopher got his first dog.
He is half Husky and half pomeranian.
He is beautiful and his name is grandpa.
My new granddog.  I don't have grandchildren.  Maybe
Some day.  



We did get a little snow, not much.
It was beautiful and it was a winter wonderland.
To all my friends who are experiencing crazy
Weather temps and tons of snow, spring is
Coming soon.  I have a link to my last video, more
Details on each piece.https://youtu.be/2Gsz8jW6EBc

To each of you who stop by and leave a comment,9 thank you.
I read each one.  

Happy stitching 🌻

Such gorgeous finishes, Cindy! I so love the bird series and am working on the Cardinals right now--boy, there is a lot of stitching in that piece! Hope to finish by the end of the month.

Your son's dog is so handsome--amazing eyes! Yes, I have no grandchildren either--just a "grandcat!" But, I, too, hope to have some soon!!!
