At the beginning of a new year, I am always ready to start a new "Winter" stitch.
To move on from Christmas and stitch something "Winter" themed.
I had this one picked out as soon as Lori published it!
"Holly" by Lori Brechlin of Notforgotten Farm.
And don't you love Frosty's Top Hat thread winder? It makes me smile :)
A happier way to store my threads while stitching.
I worked my way to get to her face so that Holly can keep me company while I stitch.
I also started some Winter wool work.
"Snowman Penny Rug" by Quilts by Cheri
(I thought I would see if I enjoy pennies as much as Mom does. Let's just say this is enough pennies for me.)
I also came across this kit.
I made this block a few year's back.
Now I have the next row of blocks ready for stitching...
I'm tweaking mine a bit to be more wintery so that I can display each January when completed.
And right now on Winding Vine, not only are our nights frosty, so are our days!
This was the temp without windchills as I drove to the train this morning. Brrrr!
"and what does the Lord require of you
but to do justice, and to love kindness,
and to walk humbly with your God"
Don't forget my wool kit giveaway is still going on in my previous post!
