I think Mother Nature and Father Winter have been at each other lately! It's the only explanation of why we've had a 67F temperature swing in two days. Last Monday and Tuesday, it rained like cats and dogs. The temp was 60F on Tuesday. When I got up on Wed, it was -7F! We've gotten at least 10" of accumulated snow over the past week. That includes the 4" of snow I had to shovel off my driveway at 4am this morning!
It's been two weeks since I showed progress on my work project, Welcome Banner. This is one of those kits that uses full stitches and then uses backstitching over part of the full stitches to outline. I really don't care for the look of those kinds of charts so I've been creating fractional stitches... a lot of them. I think it makes all the difference.

and here's what it looks like now:
Isn't she beautiful?
Until next time,
