Good Morning Everyone!
Last night before I went upstairs to crawl into bed (and read for a little bit), I looked at the weather app on my phone and it showed that by 2 or 3 a.m. we would be in a snow belt that would last into this morning. Well, that didn't happen. In a way I'm a little disappointed. Other than a dusting or two and some flurries here and there, we have not had any snow this winter. I was hoping for a pretty scene for a day or so. Maybe next year!
Here we are at the first Tuesday in March and it is time for a TNT update. Ellen Harrison continues to interest me (thank goodness...there is still so much to stitch on this piece) and a bit of progress was made this past week. A few more motifs and a bit of the outside border on the bottom and the right.
The top row of motifs is finished - it goes all the way to the right hand side. Here's a close up of the items stitched this past week.
The bird on the right with the red breast (a robin?) sits atop a tree. I may stitch that next...or I may start in on the giant stag to the right of the house. I've got options, that's for surre!
Of course, even though my interest continues with this piece, I've been thinking about what to stitch next. I have a lot of old cross stitch magazines - mostly from the 80's and 90's. Some Fine Lines, some Antique Samplers and Needlework, a few Just Cross Stitch (before that publication became way too "cutie" - just my opinion, don't shoot me). I looked at some of them the other week, but haven't settled on anything. Naturally, I have an over abundance of charts too. Some small (i.e., pincushion size which I love) and some large samplers (like Ellen Harrison). From the looks of the empty space on my Ellen Harrison piece, I have plenty of time to make up my mind and then change it - many times! LOL
I'm wishing you all a lovely Tuesday - whatever you do, be sure to enjoy it!
