February 8, 2016--This project is now framed. Michael's Arts & Crafts did a wonderful job and I know it costs less than half of what I would have paid at a traditional framing shop. Very happy.

February 3, 2016--My first completion for 2016. This was an "in process" project that has taken four years to stitch and it's nice to have it done and at the framers.

Wishing all of you a wonderful New Year with lots and lots of stitching.

September 19, 2015--The 7th and last border is done. This was a complex stitch requiring the use of four threads, one after the other. Lots of work, but the results are beautiful. Now to finish the silver snow flakes, then I'm done.
July 9, 2015--The 6th border is now stitched, only requiring 4 passes using 4 different threads. The last border is going to take some time involving 4 threads in a fern stitch variation.

December 11, 2014--This project, called Let It Snow, was a class taught by Toni Gerdes at the 2012 ANG Seminar in San Antonio, TX. I've wanted to complete the stitching, but so many things kept nudging it to the bottom of the pile. My local ANG chapter, Delaware's Seashore Chapter, has recently challenged its members to complete 3 WIPs or UFOs by December, 2015. I chose this project as one of my three.
As what happens in all of these classes, there's the usual thread spaghetti to deal with. Because it's been two years since I've looked at this project, I now have to re-read all the instructions before picking up a needle. I will post again when all of the beautiful snowflakes have been stitched.
