Here, on the other hand, in south west Michigan, the wind is gusting to 31 mph, the wind chill is 4F or -16C and the temperature is 19F or -7C......
......but are we downhearted? Nope, because I really do have a finish........this is where I started......
when it was returned to me after crossing the UK and the States a few times in an RR. And this is where I finished.....

Lettre S comme Soie
Threadworx overdyed thread
I wrote down 11011 but not sure that's right - Hydrangea
Chart bought at the Inspired Needle, Lemont IL
....and yes, I cheated, added two buttons as had had enough of the motifs, lol and the S of Sourire will be getting two tiny buttons when I find what I want.....but the stitching is finished.
I'm really proud of myself because I am a stitching (and everything else) butterfly usually, flitting from project to project but not this week....because I listed four goals at the beginning of the week.......comme ci...... and I stuck to them.......
RR stitched on and mailed - did it arrive?
JP piece finished
and quite a bit done on Her Sampler, look, here's the start on Monday
and this was where I arrived today.....
so we might have something to show on Gifted Gorgeousness on Friday! Don't hold your breath though, this is me we are talking about.
Sadly, #4 got not one bit of attention but I have meetings on Wednesday and Thursday so might be able to rectify matters.
Well, I'm not going to list the goals for next week right now, I'm just going to sit in a glow of satisfaction!
I hope, wherever you are, cool or warm, you are well and happy.
PS I'm quite giddy, 10:30 pm......another finish! Nature's Alphabet by Elizabeth's Designs, so silly, all I had to do was sew on the charm (which I had) and stitch the year. I'm not sure when I bought the chart but in February 2014 (almost two years ago) Julie and I began a SAL on a Tuesday, I fell by the wayside fairly soon, but Julie, being of a more determined nature, finished hers in record time AND brought it to show me when we met in the autumn of that year. Dear Julie, I hope it's not too much of a shock!
Instead of the black work trellis between the squares I chose to stitch Rhodes stitches at the intersections.
NOW I'm off to bed, three finishes would just be too much!
