Snowfall and WIPS

We had our first snow fall of 2008 yesterday. Not much compared with what some of you North Americans get but this suits me fine. Anymore than this and everything is a nightmare. Our country can't handle snow!My boss text me the other day to say that i could have today off and just start back on Monday! I was so happy! I though it was dumb starting back on a Friday anyway.

So here's some progress pics of some pieces i've been stitching recently. The first is Lizzy's RR and im stitching LHN's Mary Heaton (from the Dear Diary Series). It was stitching on this RR that made me decide to stitch all the Dear Diary Series for myself. And here is Cirque. I had a bit of a break from it just before Christmas so this is my week 7 progress. The end is nigh for page 1....maybe next week?
Check back soon for my blogiversary!

Love your CdC progress!!

No snow here, but it's been cold enough, off and on, to freeze the ponds. Very exciting for the kids, who want to skate!

Gorgeous WIPs, Cheryl! And snow? That's not nearly enough! I love the stuff! LOL If you think Scotland's bad when it snows, it's much worse down here. I know people who won't leave home the second a snowflake is spotted in the sky!

Cheryl ~ Your RR piece is coming along nicely and your CdC piece is just stunning. Such beautiful stitching. Good for you to get Friday off, enjoy your day ;)

I love Cirque. You inspired me to buy 3 charts, yanno: Cirque, Coffee menu & the mirabilia fairy. I'd been look, look, looking for months but after seeing yours I bit the bullet!

I'm glad you got an extra day off, it was kind of silly to start on a Friday.
Yiur wips are coming along beautifully!

Rowyn said...

Oohh... pretty snow! Great that you get an extra day off - Friday is definitely a silly day to be going back to work. Love your WIPs.

Karen said...

Love what you're working on!! I am really impressed with you stitchers who are doing the Cirque piece. I could never tackle a piece like that! You inspire me!! Have a great day!

Hello I just entered before I have to leave to the airport, it's been very nice to meet you, if you want here is the site I told you about where I type some stuff and make good money (I work from home): here it is

Stephanie said...

Happy New Year! Lucky you not having to go back until Monday - Thursday and Friday were a slog let me tell you :)

Congrats on your CdC progress - it's looking great! I think stitching the Dear Diary series sounds like a wicked plan and I'll keep and eye on you and Vonna for sure - what a great idea!

Cirque is looking good. With big projects like these a dance at the end of a page is in order. And snow, I don't think there is a country that is equipped to handle it. Even where I live, and we get lots of snow, anything more than a spoonful disrupts everything.
Your RR is lovely and I am looking forward to seeing your SAL with Vonna.

Sharon said...

Both are looking great Cheryl!

Andrea said...

Great progress on the rr piece and CdC is looking mighty fine too.

J Rae said...

Happy New Year!

Your Cirque looks so great! You are making wonderful progress!

Hannah said...

Yay for snow! We don't get any here in FL. Your progress on both pieces is coming along great!

I LOVE your CDC color, it's so pretty. And great progress on the RR :D Snow isn't my fave thing, we just get rain her anyways LOL!

Lauren said...

Oh, lovely! I love watching your CdC grow. We had a little bit of snow (flurries for less than 5 minutes on Friday!) and I think that's my limit for this year, lol.
