Smyrnas, Crescents and Snow

So, I finished both borders of Smyrnas in the Nutmeg Waterlilies....love it!  Next, using more Nutmeg I worked all the Crescents, again using 3 ply of the Waterlies.....I forgot to mention, this is 18 count canvas and it seems huge after working on the 24 count and that this design area is 11 1/2  x 11 1/2 so the canvas is on 20 x 20 stretcher bars.  I have it on the huge oak floor frame and it is working very well.  For those of you who have pulled up a chair with your drinks and popcorn.....looking only....no touching!
And, we are up to ten inches of snow since Thursday....big fluffy flakes of the stuff...great to look at from the window!

That is alot of snow but a good reason to say in and stitch.

I'm staying well away from the keyboard with the popcorn, drinks and salt! But I'm looking eagerly at the computer monitor, all the same.

Stay in and stitch, safer and you still have the internet to shop, perfect.

You're a fabulous stitching machine. Just love your work.

Stay warm with all that snow! I love your start. It is on my wish list for sure. (Will keep my cuppa joe away from your stitching too!)
