Updated for photos

Update with photos

This is for the WIP SAL and now fits
in with the end of the year.

First Three things with 2 close-ups that I can't change direction on.

Next is my Orts "jar" for the year

 Merry Brew
Upside Down

the 2017 Mystery SAL
Linens and Things
the bottom is December's band
Obviously not complete.

EGA Christmas Tree
(canvas work)
I decided to make it a two-sided ornament
the center of it now is the seam
(thin white area which surrounds the gold)

There are several more WIPs that need attention
but for now this is the current work.

Check out the rest of the SAL stitchers

Thought of the Day

Today (New Year's Eve 2017)
is the only day when
all adults were born in the 1900's
all minors were born in the 2000's.

Happy New Year!

We got more snow that expected (still no way near as bad as others) and as predicted, the temps are dropping - roughly a degree an hour (or little more).  We did get the driveway cleared (actually hubby did).

Tomorrow will bring stitching progress photos.  I hope to get more done tonight.  Still have to decide what to start on the 1st - not the 31st but on the 1st.  Yesterday I did indulge in a few new charts.  One of the locals shops had a nice sale so I arrived before it started snowing and left as it was snowing.

Still tentatively planning on making the winter of 2018, the winter for canvas pieces.  I have 4 started and another waiting in the wings.  I have two of my own designs needing to be stitched as well.  And there is lots of  genealogy yet to be done. Between all of that, I will have plenty to do if snowed in or just want to avoid the frozen temps.

Stay Warm!

Not actually snowing here
but plenty cold enough to stay inside and stitch!

Santa really needs to ditch the suit while at the beach!

December 27

It's a bit cold here
still have not hit double digits
don't even want to think of the wind chill
At least above Zero for now

And meanwhile Santa enjoys a warm and well-deserved vacation
He was good to the grandkids this year!

Meanwhile we also wait for the Magi.
