Happy Late Valentine's Day, everybody! I am, once again, ridiculously behind on email/blog reading AND have a sinus infection. 2012, I thought we handled all this business already? Why are you invading 2013 with your germ-riddled time-warp nonsense??!?
Anyway! Let's get on with the update...
Remember how I took the picture of Autumn Queen at the beginning of the month, so that I could look back and see how much progress I'd made by comparing it to where I ended up? So I could feel good about how much I'd done?
Well, I'm going to wait until the end of the month to do that, because I'm pretty sure this one looks shockingly like that first one, except better lit.
I'm still plugging along on my ornament, which I thought was so small it was a lot like cheating, but now seems nothing like cheating...
I know, there's no snowman there yet, but HE'S COMING! The blue, by the way, is some mystery silk pearl (somewhere between #12 and #8) that I grabbed out of my stash in lieu of the DMC the chart called for. I finally unraveled the tag that was wrapped around it, since it is some of THE MOST gorgeous, soft, wonderful silk I've used. It's by Alyce Schroth. I Googled her and I don't think she makes it anymore. I have NO IDEA where I got it. Has anyone else used this wonderful stuff?
So how are your WIPs figuring into things this month? Please add your link below (to your check-in post), and visit some other Themers if you can (everyone loves comments and encouragement!) Our next post will be on the 28th of February, when we'll wrap up Figural February and talk about March Madness!
