but I can't. The wind is howling outside and the snow is coming down hard. I will be so happy when this winter is behind us. I don't mind it so much if the sun is shining. But lately it has just been so gloomy.
I feel like one of the brides in seven brides for seven brothers, when they were snowed in till Spring thaw. If my husband starts to sing,dance and swing me around I will know we definitely have cabin fever.
I found this cute background with the little pears and had to use it. I have a thing for pears. Pears and Crows. I am not exactly sure why it started but I started collecting pear and crow items. When I find a design with either on it I just have to get it. I started this one last week, yep another new start. It's a cutie. I bought this a couple years ago at Strawberry Sampler. I came across it the other day while oohing and ahhing my stash and just had to start it. The basket is taking the longest. All the threads are overdyed but the basket thread is dmc 869 and it just seems to be taking forever. I do love it though. I guess I should have did it on a smaller count. I used a 32 count fabric and its still bigger then I thought it would be.
I put down my crochet hook for awhile until earlier tonight when I was playing around with some cotton thread and made this washcloth in a short time. I still like my original washcloth pattern better but thought I would try and change and see how it would come out. I have some orders from friends for more so I better get my crochet hook in gear again. They are so much fun and easy to make.
Have you feasted your eyes yet on the Autumn of Hawk Run Hollow, BESTILL MY HEART!! I love it, its soooo gorgeous. I have only seen a few blocks but so far its a definite must stitch but I also bought the Christmas one and have not even finished the others. LOL Finished, I barely started... OY!! Kathy Barrick I wish I could stitch as fast as you can design these gorgeous pieces of yours.
Here is all I have done so far of my little village. I do love the colors ...
It is my favorite but I have a feeling after Market I am going to have some more favorites. Its a sickness I tell you. :)
