Beacon House:


Not much different from last week, just some more snow. I also did the red bird at the lower left above the “a”.

Nothing doing on my February ornament  %^(

Thursday Stitching Update….

Here’s where I’m at on Beacon House:


I added the first little girl while I was barn sitting, and managed to get one of the swathes of snow completed tonight.

It’s very windy today/tonight in SE MAss. I thought Chicken was going to blow away just now while she did her business! I thought I was going to blow away!

Time for supper and TV.

Now, I have to go back to fanning my blushing cheeks!


Thank you ladies!

Stay tuned for a post later- I finished Garden Grew!!!

I can’t decide if I want to post a photo here first or let my Thursday stitching  group see it in real life first!!!!

I started it February 5, 2009, and finished March 3, 2012.

37 months overall, but I really only stitched on it while I was barn sitting several days a month each, between March or April and October those years.

I spent about half an hour putting all my DMC bobbins back in their correct spots in their storage boxes yesterday afternoon.

Here’s a link to my start way back when. And here’s where I left off last October.
