Stitching!

I received the most adorable squares from April for the Winter Fair and Square Round .. I just love this snowman :) He's from a free chart by Prairie Schooler. He's going to make a really cute Christmas ornament, don't ya think?



I haven't been stitching much on Peppermint Twist lately .. I'm hoping to get more done this week. It's really a fun stitch and goes fairly quickly too. Stop over at the PT SAL blog and check out everyone's progress .. they are lovely!!! Here's my start ...

Speaking of stitching have you all ordered your favorite new chart from Market?? What fun stuff did you order? I placed a small order which should be here next week .. I can't wait to get my hands on new stash!! Something I haven't ordered yet but I'm sooo tempted are these fun boxes .. check these out!





Thank you all for your support and lovely comments regarding my non-stitching blog entries .. you words mean a great deal to me. I'm off to stitch and watch AI ... I'm not found of this new format, but I am addicted to watching it! lol

I hope you find your joy in your stitches ...

I'm grateful for the stitching ...

PT is beautiful! I love Christmas :)

I'm not fond of the new AI format either, but what can you do?

Stitching looks good. I love these boxes, too!

I think the snowman will make a wonderful ornament! Your Peppermint Twist looks like it will be so pretty.

To answer your question about my Perpetual Calendar - yes, it's three blocks across and four down. It's a fun one!

We are also American Idol addicts!

Your stitching looks good, and I love the square you received (surprise, surprise - I love snowmen!).

I haven't placed an order yet, but I do plan to make a trip to my LNS very, very soon. I need to pick up some beads, and of course I'll have to browse ;)

LOVE the blog changes!!
April's squares are really cute.

We didn't start watching AI this year, so I'm not missing it. I was so hooked the previous years though!

The pillow in your header is wonderful - I'm glad March lasts 31 days so I can see it for awhile.

I'm not crazy about AI either this season, but I'll still watch. Something about that show is so addicting.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed for your job and those of your co-workers too.

I think the snowman will make a fantastic ornament! I really like the Peppermint Twist. If I wasn't so slow and had so many other things on my list, that would have been one I would really like to do - maybe sometime!

Carla said...

Sweet little snowman! I just received this one as an ornament from the PS Exchange Blog.

Of course I had to order a little something new - the latest Blackbird Designs sang out to me!
