Mary Wigham's Motif

Here's my Mary motif for February:





Sorry the pic is a little big. I stitched the two-tone blue one. It took me two days, but not all day... I really wish I could remember to look at a clock when I'm stitching :D

Either that or find my timer!

Still working on 'Going to Market'.
.
Also, I may have to change my yearly goals; I was asked to stitch L&L's 'Enchanted Alphabet' and I know me - it'll take a while even though it's relatively small. I'll have to think what to do... if I should let one of the big projects I want to finish go or if I should take time from other things I do and stitch more...
.
hmm...

That Was Quick...

Finished my February 'Bride's Tree' ornament!

Only took a very little while - I'm still forgetting to keep track of my time, but I did it all yesterday in between house-cleaning stuff.

.
It helps that it's a really small ornament :D

'Hearts in a Basket' - a freebie by the Silver Needle.

First February Finish & HAED freebie SAL

I finished my Christmas ornament for February - this one was a Gingerbread Man.


Cute, huh? Although I'll admit he makes me think of clowns, and I don't like clowns...

I think I have about 10 of these little kits to go. I put them all in a glass punchbowl and my Mum draws one out when the last one is finished. She drew a little church on blue fabric today, so I'll be doing that one in March.

This was the HAED freebie SAL weekend, and I got a lot of the 939 and some skin stitched on my Mermaid.
.
I forgot to keep track of my hours, but I was stitching pretty slow... I'd say it was at least 5. She's 5 10-block columns wide, and I got all but 4 stitches of the 939 done in the first three columns of 10-blocks. I'd like to finish this page of the pattern before we get the next page in April, but if I keep stitching this slow, I don't think it will happen.
.
Ah, well - on the Bride's Tree ornie and back to 'Going to Market'!

Ann - We got a lot of snow here, although we didn't get the 2 feet that was predicted. I'm still semi-snowed in, though. The roads are pretty rough.
