Here in Kennewick the New Year came with a snow storm, starting in the early hours on Sunday the 1st, and continuing on into the morning of the 2nd. I think we have maybe 7 inches at our house, other parts of town have more. It's a good day to stay indoors and watch the Rose Parade and bowl games!
So it's the perfect day to start a new x-s project! I've chosen A Spot of Winter by The Drawn Thread. I found a piece of 32 ct linen in Smoky Pearl (I think). The threads I've pulled are: DMC 844, 926, GA Blue Spruce, WDW Cadet, Northern Lights silk Garnet, a Needle Necessities overdye (unknown color) that I've had forever, and Mori silk in white that I'm borrowing from Jingle Bells Xmas Tree Farm acc pac.
In honor of our freshly fallen snow, I started with the snowman.
Before the New Year, I made some progress on the Xmas Tree Farm.
Pretty close to how it looks outside my window!
Gary and I ended up staying home NYE. I didn't sleep well the night before as I had to wake early to get son Kyle to the airport. He flew off to spend a few days with his girlfriend who has been living in Nashville - seems like a fun place to be on NYE! And Gary has been fending off a cold and just didn't have energy to go out to spend the evening with friends. So the old folks stayed home and went to bed after watching a few episodes of Frankie and Grace on Netflix, lol! At least I popped open a bottle of prosecco to celebrate the new year.
I hope you enjoyed your New Year celebrations and wish you all the best in 2017!
