A little Winter Stitching...

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.
I was so excited when I saw it on Lori's blog and ordered it right away from her Etsy shop.
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"
~Micah 6:8

Don't forget my wool kit giveaway is still going on in my previous post!

Blessings, Patti
