It's Can't Be February!

It's a bright, chilly morning here on the east coast after a rather harsh frost last night and there is a possibility of more snow later today. There was some snow flurries last Friday, which were forecast, but we most certainly weren't expecting the 3 to 4 inches we woke up to on Saturday morning!

Not much stitching to show this time as I didn't stitch on BRD Winter Wingding this week due to wanting to get the first block of CHS Shores finished for the end of January but as you can see it didn't quite happen! Not much to do though so I should be able to start block two this week, although we're at a 50th birthday party on Saturday night so it may not happen! Lol!


My Just Nan 4 Wishes is going well and I've almost finished the spring part. One of those little yellow ducks caused havoc as he was in the wrong place so he had to be moved lol. Plus I've discovered that the border on the right is off somewhere so I need to take that back but I'm struggling to find where it's wrong so will just take it back and hope I find it!

I picked Millennium Roll for my SB roll for January. Thought seen as it's 10 years since the New Millennium it was quite apt. As you can see it's not made up into a roll yet but it will be soon I hope :)


Thank you for all your kind comments on my gift for Chris. I am hoping to stitch this for myself in reds as I have some red ginghers that need a safe place :)

Well I better go back to my dusting as that's what I should be doing! lol! Got one room done and my enthusiasm has waned! Take care everyone!
Hugs

Lovely stitching Sally - I like that needleroll! I didn't quite finish the first Shores square either and have a very busy week this week . I hope it will be done by the weekend though.

Each block of Shores takes me much longer than I think it will. Or maybe I'm just slow!

Love your new SB roll.
