I Want Winter!!

So many of you have had the never ending winter this year and I am insanely jealous! Here in the East Central Corridor of Ohio, we've had one snowfall before Christmas of 5" and then two other snowfalls of less than 2". That's it. A few flurries.

I heard California has places with 173% of normal snowfall on the ground. The East coast is bracing for their second blizzard in a week. The northern mid-west has been blanketed. What about us???

Our temps have been in the 50's and 60's setting records. We get rain. Oh, tons of rain. But, I want snow. Probably the only person in this town that wants snow. But, dang it -- it's still winter. I know, I know, be careful what you wish for. But, at this late date...I doubt if we get another snow fluffy this season.

Rant over....

On the stitchy side of life - I have a finish!

 I should have had this one done several days if not two weeks ago. Things have been interesting around here and last night I was finally able to get the last few stitches in.

I then immediately started this one ~

Went shopping a few weeks ago. We have a new stitching store in the area (Canton, Oh). It's a small store. They have been there now for just over a year and are already adding on! It's called Little Creek Needleworks.

They have a weekly stitch-in on Thursdays. I hope to make it some day. I'm sure to stop by when I need that one floss I'm always running out of.

Here's my newest stash ~

The linen is Dirty, and left to right -
Stacy Nash Primitives - December 25th, Erica Michaels - 1776, and
Heartstring Samplery - E Pluribus Unum
Well, I've delayed doing the mileage for our taxes long enough. Gotta get it done. bbbbooooo...

Until next time!

Oh, the weather. I'd have gladly given you our snow on Wednesday; it created a scheduling hassle here, but we got it figured out.

Don't be kicking yourself about not finishing that great stitch sooner. As I recall, you've had a set back or two recently... Those new patterns will be fun. Glad you're able to stitch on linen again. Enjoy!

Congratulations on your finish! It is a cute one! What great additions to your stash. I'm with you on the wanting snow rant. We have had even less than you in my part of VA. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

We haven't had any snow in the UK either! My children are desperate to build a snowman. Your crab is so cute...looking forward to seeing it finished.

Winter has also missed us temps in the 70's today. Beautiful finishes--so glad you have a stitch store--wish one would come to our area
