The winter weather has been unseasonably mild for this time of year. Christmas came and went with no snow. New Year's came and went with no snow. So far, temps have pretty much stayed in the 30-40's range with a few frigid days here and there. As the sign on my sidebar says, I'm $39.95+ and I've never known there not to be snow on the ground for Christmas and New Year's! Here's what The Homestead looked like between Christmas and New Year's:
See the little patch of snow at the top of the hill?
CraftyMoo is hosting a New Year giveaway on her blog. Click on over and check out her crazies, too!
I've cleaned out my ort bag so that I'm ready for the 2012 TUSAL coordinated by Daffycat. Here's all the orts from 2011. Whooda thunk I stitched so much?!
I added more things to my stash-for-sale blog, including some John Clayton charts and a Miribilia. If you'd like to see what's available, click HERE or click the link on the sidebar. Stay tuned 'cuz I'll be adding more as time permits.
I finished another page of Blossom Splendor. Only one more page to go!
She has been set aside so that I could create mailart for an exchange I signed up for last year. I started the mailart on Jan 1st and finished it into an envelope four days later! Sorry, can't show the pic until it wings its way to Europe.
Hold on to your seats! I pulled out Japanese Garden and worked on it TWO days in a row. I made some pretty good progress:
I hand-dyed a piece of blue fabric for Aurora Cabin. I think it turned out fabulous! All I need to do now is stitch it!
Last week I mentioned that Pam and I were doing an ornament SAL together. Since then we've been joined by Shelley of Shelley's Artsy Fartsy Life and Mary Ann of Just Stitching.
I have an awesome project in the works for The Homestead. Actually, I'll have a couple of things to showcase (probably next week). Now that I'm finished with school, I have more time to get done projects around the house.
Until next time,
