I figure I’m about one-third of the way through the background on Mike’s new puzzle design–almost through 2 skeins of DMC floss.
The snow started falling in December and keeps falling and falling and falling. We don’t have the tons that our friends in Girdwood have, but we’ve got around 3 feet, I’d guess.
Stitching and reading…yeah, yeah, we do that all the time. Today, however, it was stitching and writing.
Remember the Holiday Bake-Along over at The Armchair Chef? Well, Tink’s at it again. She’s putting together a collection of pie and cake recipes from needlework designers and retailers.
Long hours of stitching today. Such grueling work! Actually, there’s some truth in that. Any repetitive activity can wreak havoc on a body, and it seems that everything I do involves repetitive motion: stitching, writing and drawing at the computer.
The outline of the puzzle pattern is done! The background is begun. These are the only colors that are certain thus far, so that’s what I’m stitching.
