My FNSI stitch last night was Fresh Fallen Snow by LHN, found in the 2011 JCS ornament issue. It is also one of my Crazy January starts and last night I finished it! Yay! It's my 8th finish of all my Crazy starts, too...
Stitched with Belle Soie silks, two over two on mystery fabric. I'm used to using one strand of silks for stitching. Two strands keep getting caught up in knots and on my fingers, which are dry. I'm happy it's finished.
My 9th Crazy finish is this, Jingle, by With Thy Needle & Thread/Brenda Gervais. Fun stitch but Santa was a bit brutal with all that red! I love how it looks though, a bit dainty..
I'm hoping it doesn't look so blurry when it gets to the blog post. I added a few more 4-stitch snowflakes to this. The Red is from Valdani and I really like it, it's such a rich red.
Since this month is going by so quick and I've been struck with a head cold, I totally forgot the Gifted Gorgeousness! I hadn't even kitted anything up for it. Next time I'll be ready for it. I never get sick so I don't know what's up. Seven years ago I had the Flu and that was the last time I've been sick except for sounding like a lawn mower in November!
My daughter and I are headed down to Phoenix tomorrow for a book signing and lunch at the Rainforest Cafe. The author is Craig Johnson and his books are the Walt Longmire series and the TV series called Longmire. I'm going, sick or not! I'll be armed with cough drops and antibacterial hand gel!
Hope you all had a wonderful Mothers Day. I did. My daughter bought me flowers and a lunch at the Haunted Hamburger in Jerome, AZ. It was a great day!
Thanks for stopping in!
