....and it helps me keep my sanity. I've tried to come to terms with my brother's death and am having trouble with it. I guess we look at our siblings as someone who will always be there no matter what and when you lose one, it knocks you off your feet. I'll be okay but I guess it will take awhile.
Meanwhile I've been doing some finishing and I came up with this little winter pillow. It's a JBW design that works up very quickly if you're interested in doing it. I stitched mine on a piece of medium blue 20 count linen over 1 thread because I wanted it small.
I machine embroidered the Let It Snow on a coordinating piece of blue print cotton and added lace to the snowflake.
I doubt if we'll get any snow here in Florida this winter but I can always hope.
The next picture is of an angel I purchased last year at a Hallmark store here in town. I loved it the moment I saw it but can you figure out what is wrong with it?
The angel is holding two needles in her hand but the snowflakes are crocheted which you do with a hook. It reminds me of that toilet tissue commercial that was on years ago where the old ladies are sitting around quilting toilet paper. Only thing wrong is that they showed the ladies holding two needles and that's not the way you quilt. These guys should really be asking some needleworkers if there are any mistakes before they produce these items. I love her anyway...mistakes and all.
I also have a terrible memory. I purchased a pattern at my LNS last week only to find out I already had it.
So this one above is in my store along with the snowflake one so if you're interested they are under the sales tab.
Hope everyone has cooler temperatures to deal with this week and you get alot of stitching done.
