First Day of Winter!

Doesn't feel much like winter here right now... sunny and 40. But I think the Old Man is just trying to lull us into a false sense of security. I'm not fooled, and if you've been visiting for a while, you know that I use winter weather as an excuse a reason to stock up on everything--including stash! You don't want to be caught without those beads or that certain color of silk during a blizzard. That would be awful. So...

These are the materials for Just Nan's Snowfire Christmas, which I'm converting into a wedding sampler for us. I've made a few changes. I'll be stitching it on PTP Valor, and using silver beads instead of gold, and I've replaced a pinkish color with the DMC 777 you see in the picture. That gorgeous silk is Caron Waterlilies in Cherry. This will be a New Year's Day start.

I also picked up some cotton and a few buttons for a little winter freebie I want to stitch up pretty soon. The fiber is Caron Wildflowers--my favorite fiber EVER--in Evergreen. Isn't that tiny sheep so adorable?

A few other supplies for another winter project.

And here on the first day of winter, a little peek of spring. Sparkly lavender spotted fabric. Since I already had some sparkly pink spotted fabric, I had to have some of this, too. For those of you who are hyperventilating right now, it's from Fabric Flair!

Okay, winter. I'm ready.


  1. Wow! You are really planning! Good for you, looks great.

  2. Can't wait to see your Snowfire Christmas conversion.
