Is everyone still stuffed from Christmas treats?
I sure am!
There's one piece of baklava left......
We are still snowbound....
....including Chad, whose car you see here. But this fine 18 year old guy has been mellow hanging out on the hilltop with his parents for a whole week. Amazing!
There hasn't been much to do but eat and stitch and watch TV, and I have made some progress embroidering the cottage.
I've outlined the basic shapes on the cottage, minus the outer rooflines. They have to wait until the background tree embroidery is done. I've been working on that and if you click on the photo you can see it.
But my goodness it is b-o-r-i-n-g work.
I hadn't seen it up on the design wall in over a week, and wasn't sure if the embroidery on the house was working with the overall look.
There is some squaring up to do along the top edge (it will be covered by cording so that's not an issue)....but I was relieved to see all is coming together o.k.
Still I'm going to take a break and have my annual "go mad in the sewing room" week between Christmas and New Year's.
And....since I've managed to gain four pounds since the beginning of December.....
...our new weight bench looms as my immediate destiny.
My body builder son can't wait to make me suffer!!!!
