Long time - no blogging!

I can't believe it's over a week since I last blogged. Where does the time go!

Here, at last, is the picture of the Snow Poem that I'm doing as part of a SAL at Threads and Yarns. The picture doesn't show it very well but I've used a silver blending thread in with the red and the green so that it glistens to give it a festive feel.

It really won't take all that long to finish now. It's the piece I take with me to do while the girls do their swimming and ballet, so a few more lessons and it will soon be done.

I've also been putting in a lot of work on my Celtic Winter, and this is how she is looking now. I've still got quite a bit of white to put in on the front of her skirt in amongst the swirls.

I have decided to do her face and hand one over one, so the scissors are coming out tonight and I'm going to frog her features. This is her "Close Up" as she is.

I've given it quite a bit of thought, but having seen other people's when they've done one over one it does look really nice, and as the plan is to do all four seasons and they will be around the house for quite some time I think it is worth the effort to do it right now. I know that nobody would think "she should have done the face one over one" but I would know it could have been better so - wish me luck!

Happy stitiching everybody and thank you for your continued visits.

Love your snow poem, I am so behind, must check out the SAL (but not join it!!! LOL) Very festive!! I think I have left any Christmas stitching too late this year as I have too many other projects to complete by the end of the year, so I will enjoy yours instead!
