Getting caught up

During the push to finish Bucklebury Sampler over the past few weeks, I put all other projects to the side. Now, I'm slowly getting caught up with the Just Nan SAL and CCN's Frosty Forest. Yesterday, I finished my piece for the March JN SAL post, and am deciding what I want to stitch for April; probably another Christmas WhimZi, to continue with my "theme".

This past Tuesday I drove up to The Stitching Bee and picked up part 4 of Frosty Forest, Snowy Friends. Then I came home and finished up part 3, Snowman's Cottage:

I've made a start on part 4, and am now further along than the following picture shows:

I'm hoping to finish up part 4 over the weekend. The next entry, part 5, will be another cabin design, which are my favorite blocks in this series. I am having a lot of fun playing with colors on this piece, too, so it looks a bit different than the original.

On a stitchy side note, I recently had my Faerie Autumn Glow published in the letters section of Cross Stitch Collection, issue 233:

Gotta love free floss!

Speaking of free, Nancy at Victorian Motto Sampler Shoppe is giving away one of her gorgeous sampler designs to one lucky winner; click here, and it could be you! I've fallen in love with Forget Me Not, as the colors are just beautiful.

Hope everyone has a great stitchy weekend!


  1. Congrats on getting your letter published and the free floss! I could never be that lucky as it takes me years to get anything finished.

  2. I really like how your Frosty Forest is turning out. I was going to pass on this one but... I may have to go do some shopping later.
