Small Progress

I know it doesn't look like much but this is about 10 hours of progress on the snowman piece. Only 3 colors have been introduced so far, white and 2 blues. This is about 2/3 of the way through the first page but there is a lot of thread changes ahead before I can move to page 2.Over dyed thread have made me a lazy stitcher and all those thread changing for definition seem like so much work but this piece really needs them and I don't see any fudging with the over dyes or the miles of back-stitching.  

The Stitched Tree ended up in my entrance way this year. I am finally not embarrassed about how bare it is with the addition of the assembled ornaments from years past.It also has a few hand painted gourds and some glass snowmen from my mom's collections of ornaments. 

I am feeling better but coughing up some amazing stuff, spoken like a true medical professional. I hear this will be the lasting part of this little infection. Everyone says it is really difficult to get rid of the cough. Just a little something to look forward too. Thankful I did not get my husbands flu. He was the only one in the house that got that and we were all glad to let him be an overachiever and contract it first and hopefully alone. 

Hope you are managing a little time with the needle and thread. 

Thanks for stopping by,


  1. Pam you must have so much patience and very good eye sight. I really have a problem stitching with whites.

    Your ornaments stand looks good. It will fill a little more each year.

    Cough it all up, better out than in!!!

  2. Good progress and your entry display is lovely. This year I decided to start display of exchanges...a little sparse but hopefuly eachyear will be more for me to add as with you.

  3. Hope you feel better soon ~ those lasting coughs can be so tiring!
    Some progress is better than none ~ you'll get there!!
