Slow Saturday and Sunday Stitching

Yesterday's snow allowed for some slow stitching on both days. I added some stitches to the dress on Spring Angel. I am slowly filling it in. 

I also managed to get a few stitches completed on Baker Beach. Here is my last update on November 8th last year.
 I knew that if I didn't get back to it soon, I would start forgetting about it. I have filled in some of the black stitching.
 I really hope to go back to working on it somewhat steadily. Do you see that little item in the bottom right corner. Mom gave me some money for Christmas to buy myself some craft items. I got myself a great little needle nanny from Keepsake Quilting

We had a whole lot of snow yesterday. Hubby and I went out 2 times during the day to snow-blow and shovel just to try to keep ahead of the build-up.
It is just too much to wait until the snow stops and then try to clean it all up. This pic was from our first foray outside. At least the plows have been through several times. 
This was our birdbath early yesterday morning. We now have more than 24 inches. This is the view this morning. That same birdbath is off to the left.

I will be joining Kathy for some Slow Sunday Stitching. On Monday, I will be joining the Stitchery Link Party at Super Mom - No Cape. Pop on over to these sites to see what other bloggers are stitching.

Thanks for stopping by!

I'm finally able to start commenting on blogs again after spending literally months catching up. Your progress is amazing! I'm jealous of your snow - we had less than an inch and it all melted pretty much immediately. The joys of living in Devon! Have a great Sunday <3

this is on Long Island? my sister and brother in Maryland have close to 3 feet of snow now I think but it sounds like it stopped last night thank goodness.
So many quilters do needlepoint too - yours looks very nice

Back in 2010 we had 2 feet and I know it is a tremendous amount to deal with!

Lovely stitching here as always :)

Glad to see Baker Beach is out again. Wow! You sure have a lot of snow! I see lots of shovelling with stitching breaks in your near future! Stay safe!

Quilter Kathy said...

Oh my goodness.. that is a lot of shoveling!
Perfect stitching weather!

Ivani said...

Stay warm and keep up the stitching growing.

Looks like a great day to slow stitch in between snow shoveling. Living down south now so I actually miss the snow. That is a lot in one storm. Hope you are staying warm. Great progress on the bridge. It seems like those detailed cross stitches take forever. I did one in 6 months and the next took me 2 years! Love seeing your progress.

Your cross-stitch projects are looking great. We got 8 inches of snow in Nashville. Only a few main corridors get plowed here. Neighborhood streets are still in terrible shape. Thankfully, we don't often get snow of any consequence here.

Carol said...

Lovely stitching, Cathy! I hope your neighborhood returns to normal very soon after that big snowfall. We escaped with only 4 inches here in western PA :)

Such great stitching for snowy weather!

The snow is amazing. I haven't seen more than 8 inches as an adult. I don't want to, either. LOL. I can see real progress on that corner of the bridge. You really don't have much more to do. The Spring Angel looks like it will be done in time for spring!

I am so sad you are getting so much snow.
I love the Becker Beach, so beautiful.
Snow Angel so cute, thank-you for sharing with us.

Blessings

Love the snow pictures. Reminds me of my childhood in Hawthorne NY. Baker Beach is quit an undertaking. I am not that ambitious.
Thanks for the comment on my blog too. Glad you visited. Keep safe and warm with Peace to all, Barb
