Thank you and 'happy stitching'
Thank you all so much for the kind comments which you have left me this past month. They meant so much to me and I feel very priviledged to have met all of you and become a part of this warm & caring community.
Like all stitchers the actual act of stitching seems to sooth both my body and my soul, so although I haven't written this past month I have been stitching. I felt it was a good idea to do some 'happy stitching' - something which would bring a smile to my face while working on it as well as a smile to anyone who sees the finished project.
This past fall my friend Brenda was visiting a local framing shop when she suddenly discovered that the owner has an entire wall dedicated to seasonal stitching. The following week she took me to see 'the wall' and I was just as impressed as she was. A few weeks later we dropped in again - all the Halloween/Fall stitching had been removed, the wall had been painted a warm dark red and Christmas stitching was on display. B & I decided right then and there that this was a fantastic idea and started planning our own seasonal walls.
This is January's stitching contribution to what will hopefully become my Christmas display. Both snowmen are designed by Valerie Danish of 'Val's Stuff'. They have been stitched over two on 28 ct Glacier Lugana.
Tomorrow is SAL day for our friend Frederick. I hope to be posting an updated picture later this week.
