Stitch from my Stash - the beginning

On New Year's Day, I spent part of my day picking my two projects for #stitchfrommystash
I had such a hard time choosing, that I selected three lol! First up:

"Snow Day"
by Prairie Schooler 
from Book #177 January

I have been wanting to stitch this one since January 2016!
I started stitching Prairie Schooler designs in the mid-1980's
and they have been one of my favorite designers ever since.
If I was on a desert island and could only bring charts from one designer - this would be it :)
Sadly, I can't even remember the last time I stitched a Prairie Schooler?! 
So this will be the month! 

Little Red Barn and Grandpa's Pick-up
from the Farmhouse Christmas series
by Little House Needleworks

this is the bonus project that I kitted up :)
I've seen so many finishes of this series lately that I am finally itching to start!
I will only be doing these two charts in the series and want them to be for winter rather than Christmas. 

My wool project for January will be:

"Snowy Days"
by Heart to Hand

Believe it or not this kit was purchased back in 2013!
And I have not worked on it since January 2016!

I think that I need to finish it this month!

Here is where I left off three years ago:

I sure hope that I can get it done and enjoy it yet this winter...

I've made a little progress on "Little Red Barn" already this week...

So many of you have asked for pics of the pups.
Leia was thrilled with the new toy that they received for Christmas!
A stuffed log with three stuffed squirrels inside that can be pulled out through holes in the log.
She wouldn't sit still for a picture ;) 

Peanut wasn't quite as thrilled.
Although he did steal a squirrel once Leia had pulled it out lol.

Peanut's favorite activity is snuggling with his sister.

Even when snuggling, Leia usually has a toy in her mouth. 

She just can't let go!

Peanut just doesn't get it :)

And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger. And when they had seen it, they made known abroad the saying which was told them concerning this child. And all they that heard it wondered at those things which were told them by the shepherds. But Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in her heart.
~Luke 2:16-19

I am trying to stitch from my stash but see other things and then go off that rail.:) I am stitching the farmhouse Christmas as a row that I saw someone else had done (at the moment can`t remember who)and hope to get a little more on that soon. I was wondering if you could tell me what the pattern is for your lovely scissor fob. Thank you. Happy Stitching.

Thanks for the pupdate. They are too stinkin' cute :)
