Blizzard stitching

We had our blizzard.  Fortunately, the most exciting part was the depth of the snow.  We didn't lose power. We ended up with about 30" of snow in places that it didn't drift.  Some of the drifts are seriously deep.

Overall, the blizzard made for a good stitching day.  I worked on Red Puppy from Nora Corbett and Dressmaker's Daughter also from Nora Corbett but under the Mirabilia label.  Here's a photo of my progress on Red Puppy.  (The progress on Dressmaker's Daughter so far is a big lavender rectangle.)  I love stitching with the Waterlilies in Red Puppy.  The Wisper thread isn't awful but so far I've only stitched with the white Wisper.  I'm not so sure that stitching with the black Wisper will be as easy.

Happy Stitching!

Super Bowl stitching

Happy Super Bowl Sunday!

I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend.  I'm stitching away and occasionally looking up to watch a commercial or some fray on the field.

I really like this design.  It's cute and it's a quick stitch - except maybe for the Wisper.  Just threading the needle with the Wisper is half the battle and since you use such short lengths, I feel like I'm threading the needle all the time.  I love stitching with the the silk Waterlilies though.

I think I'll be able to finish the lady tonight.  Sadly, I can't do the dog tonight.  I ordered lots of white, brown and black Wisper from my distributor.  Unfortunately they sent 2X lots of white wisper and no black so I'll have to hold off there.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend. 
Happy Stitching!
