Can this really be the last day of February? It has been snowing 5 days straight here and we are buried in snow. We had power outages a few times. I am thankful we have a generator. I took some pictures of the snow during our storms and made a little flick'r badge with them if you care to look, its on the right sidebar of my blog. It is a very beautiful sight to see but it gets tiring. March is certainly coming in like a Lion. I love that saying. Just one more month (hopefully) and the maybe we will get some sunshine. I sure could use some.
In honor of our days off I started and finished something new.
A friend gave me this chart a long time ago and I have wanted to stitch it so FINALLY I did. It's called Bronwyns Biscornu by Primitive Traditions. I didn't use the colors it called for which was just two shades of brown and I am sure that would have looked nice, certainly more primitive. I was in the mood for something more cheerful.
I bought some threadworx threads awhile back and they are just so pretty. I used one called Kaleb's Cherry Patch. It's such a pretty blend of browns and pinks. Once finished I realized I didn't have any polyester stuffing so I stuffed it with doll pellets. I decided not to put a button in the center. I just kind of like it the way it is. Isn't it pretty? I just love these biscornus.
Market is over and I am thrilled with all the new things that are out. I ordered the new book by Blackbird Designs called Honeysuckle Manor. I can't wait to get it, I am so thrilled with Blackbird design books. They are always filled with so many great fun charts and creative ideas.
Next order I hope to get some new Primitive Needle designs and not to mention the brandnew Autumn at Hawk Run Hollow. It's a beauty too.
Now take a look at these wonderful scissors, aren't they nice. I love them. If you are interested in purchasing a pair they are being sold by
Yuko and they are very reasonable. Just $8.00 each. She has a couple other styles too. Thank you again Yuko, I love them.
Thank you to all of you that visit my blog, I am so very thankful for all of you.
Good night all, and wishing you a good nights rest and a wonderful Monday as well.
