Winter's Still Here!

Winter's still here, at least for another 10 days!!   I took this pic this past week when we had a snow storm move in.  I couldn't see across one block. 

With the bad weather though, comes some good time stitching time, so I have almost completed Tatty Teddy Baby Sampler.  I am just working on the Tatty part right now, and will have to add name, date and time once my great nephew is born.   As you can see I changed the blanket in the pattern again.  This time I actually have used two of the colours from his bedroom. 

Newton is coming along fairly well too, with a bit of stitching left, and then can begin the backstitching.

Hope you are all have a great stitchy weekend.    :)

  2. I like both of your stitcheries ... Tatty Teddy will be a beautiful birth sampler. In my neck of the woods I fear that spring by the calendar will not be much help but we can hope. A prairie winter usually provides a lot of sunshine and at least one spell of warm weather that we often refer to as the 'bonspiel thaw' but not this year. Alas, cabin fever rages. :)

    1. It was quite a storm, snowing and blowing! But yesterday and today it's much warmer - up to 7c today. I started walking outside again yesterday, which is much better than the apt hallway all winter! Thanks for the lovely comment. Hope your snow wasn't too bad. Happy Stitching! :)
