Hello Everyone From Chilly PA,
Wow, my car registered 11 degrees the entire way to work this a.m. It is COLD!!! Perfect weather for curling up with a delicious sampler. So far that hasn't happened tonight...but there is still a little time. Meanwhile, some updates on PLL. I did not get as far along as I had hoped (of course), but nonetheless am pleased with the little progress I have made.
And...the Parrot has emerged. He/She is now watching me all the time LOL. I was so glad to have moved downwards and work with some colors other than green and gold, but I could not resist moving to the right and putting in a few stitches on the parrot. Here is a close-up.
I am loving this sampler so much. I know that belonging to this SAL has been an enormous help in spurring me on, but I am amazed at how much I am enjoying this.
Now my problem/decision is: what else to do? I will be traveling for business half of February and this piece is way too big to travel with...so I need another piece to carry with me. I am thinking of Pincushion (which, I believe several are already working on) or Bird in a Bough. Both are in my stash. Thoughts anyone? Here are links to the samplers on the SL site:
