Almost Finished!

Thanks for the nice compliments on the last post; here's a bit more progress!

I'm nearly done with Cold Hands, Warm Heart! I scanned this early this morning, so I actually have more done now, too. I finished filling in the little heart on the snowman and got some more of the big heart done. I want to finish this by Saturday. The only thing that might slow me down is that I can't decide about one part of the design - there are two little birds on either side of the red heart at the bottom - one blue with white and one white with blue.
I'm not sure I want them to be blue and white. I'm thinking of blue and pink for one and some completly different combination for the other. I dunno.

Here's my progress on my Retro January Kat. Cute, no? His eyes will be green beads.
And my other project I'm working on a little, Chang WuFei. I made this pattern myself; he's a character from the anime Gundam Wing. I laid out the pattern to show how much I still have to do. Nothing on a HAED, but good practice for one, yes? :D

Little Bits of Progress

Here are a few lil' bits and pieces of things I've been working on:

My snowman now has a face! (and part of a body)

and I've done a little bit more of the background on my Retro Kat.

I've also got my Samurai up to having a hand, and I've been working on Chang WuFei, but mostly just the white, off-white, and pale yellow going down the outside of his arm. Not worth a picture yet. Maybe next post. I want to reach his elbow with the light part before I switch back to Fred and Achoo!'s rotation slots. So far I've reached his the edge of his shoulder.

I also never actually posted my February goals, so here they are:
1. Start Mighty Samurai
2. Work on Chang WuFei
3. Work on Fred
4. Finish Cold Hands, Warm Heart
5. Maybe work on Achoo! if Fred's goal is met

The Weather Outside...

Is frightful!

See how lovely my back porch looks? And we're supposed to get another 6-8 inches before 8pm. It's snowing pretty hard right now, so it may happen!

I gotta admit, it makes the mountains look pretty:

Not that they don't anyway :D

I'm kinda glad to be snowed in; I haven't had time to stitch for a week! I started Mighty Samurai, true, but did I get much done?

That would be a 'no'.

I got a little more done on 'Cold Hands', but also nothing to goggle at - behold my mighty progress!

That snowman really needs a face...

One thing I did do, was finish the puzzle. My mum came by to visit, and she luffs puzzles, too, so we got it done in only 2 days! It went from the outline, to this:

and then this:

While we sat and talked and drank way too much coffee. We actually got further than this, but I forgot to take another picture. Then, the next morning before work, I finished it:
Now to decide which one to do next - and if I'm really up to another puzzle! We worked on this one so non-stop that I was seeing the pieces when I closed my eyes... XD
