Grant House 1865 Sampler
Chessie and Me
30 count Confederate Gray
7 degrees! The outside temperature is 7 degrees--winter has found me. While listening to the national news last evening, the anchor person said there was only one state in the lower 48 states which did not have snow! Brrr, it is cold. There are benefits to cold temps: delicious soups, hot chocolate and snuggling with Miss Callie Mae Calico. Cold temps mean staying inside and stitching, lots and lots of stitching. Am down to the over one work on the Chessie and Me sampler.
The Scarlet Letter
Ver A Soie Silks
She doesn't look like much yet, but Emma is big and bold! I only had one color of the silks (the other colors are on order) and the one color I did have was in her border. Stitching on Emma is pure pleasure. With football playoffs, national championships games and cold temps, I will have more time to devote to Emma and her border.

32 count Belfast Linen Charcoal Gray
Let's not talk about the number of club pieces which are waiting to be stitched, let's not talk about the challenges of stitching on dark fabric, let's talk about the contrast of colors with the dark linen and lighter fibers. I found some awesome trim and backing fabric in my stash for this piece.
The high today is forecast to be 30 degrees, great weather for staying inside and pulling some more fiber through linen.
