Baby It's Cold Outside!

I don't have to tell you it's cold here . . . it's cold EVERYWHERE!  That's okay . . . it's great stitching weather!  I finished stitching two more new designs these past few days sipping my cup of hot chocolate warm and cozy with my polar fleece socks on.  Want to see a few sneak peeks?

Gotta run the top one off to my framer this week and pick up the one I dropped off a few weeks ago.  The bottom one I'm making into a small "shelf pillow" . . . have an idea for the edging that I hope will work out as good as I think it will . . . we'll see!

I also stitched a banner on burlap for my room at the TNNA Nashville Needlework Market that I need to finish.  I couldn't find the fabric I wanted to back it with, but I found a pretty good substitute.  This was a messy project . . . burlap sheds terribly!
I worry about the animals out in this cold.  My deer were in the yard yesterday.  I can't believe how big the babies are now . . . almost as big as mama!  I hope they cuddle up!!  Hang in there . . . it's supposed to be in the 50s by the end of the week!!!
Gotta run . . . I've got banners to finish and pillows to make!!!!

I see more stitching and hot chocolate in my future!!!
