First Finish of 2011

Woodland Sampling

Woohoo! My first finish for 2011 and my first Crazy January Challenge finish! I've actually had it done for a few days now, but for some reason getting the iron out and de-wrinkling this thing and then taking a picture of it ended up at the bottom of my to do list. Must remember to make that type of thing a priority in the future!

I've been working on Green Snowman from Shepherd's Bush the last couple of nights. I'm filling in the snowman and feel like I've crossed a few thousand white stitches. Not 100% thrilled with the way it's looking. I don't know if it's the fabric (30-count Weeks) or my crappy stitching but my poor snowman is looking like Swiss cheese. I'm being careful not to pull my thread too tight but I'm still ending up with huge holes between all my stitches. Really hoping it will relax a little once I'm done.

Looks like we have a big winter storm heading this way so I'll be making a run to the grocery store to stock up on provisions. We were treated to a little sun yesterday, the first in what seems like forever. It's a wonder we don't all have rickets!

Here's a shot of Spitz helping me try to get an un-blurry shot of my Woodland Sampling...
