As I was coming back from my weekend at my sister's in NH, I drove through town so I could see what the temperature reading was....9 degrees! And that doesn't count in the wind which has been really nasty today. We had a bit of snow overnight and this morning but it was such small crystals that they didn't amount to much. Right now there is a gorgeous pink sunset and I've noticed it's staying lighter longer each day so that's a good thing!
Here is my progress on my needleroll UFO after one week. I'm pretty pleased with how much I accomplished. I will put it away until next month's UFO stitching week with LAS and pick up my CHS Alphabet piece this week. I also finished the frame for the back piece of my Valentine's exchange. Now I just need to decide on the personalization for it and get that stitched. I also must get cracking on my first birthday exchange piece for 2006 as it will need to be mailed out by the first weekend in February.
I have decided to start over on my Miss Mary Mack tin pin SAL because the 40 ct Sheep's Straw I started on is just too tightly woven. I am switching to a 40ct R&R Lt. Capacino instead. It's got a bit more of an open weave and should be easier to work with than the other. I'm going to stick with the WDW Onyx as I like the color against the fabric. Hopefully I will have some progress to show you tomorrow.
