With my work schedule last week and this I have to keep checking to see what day it is. Yes it is Thursday and yes, I am officially done working for the day – have to use up some of that personal time. 🙂 It is a cold, damp dreary day here. Clearly not as cold as it had been because snow is rapidly melting, but that cold, damp feeling that accompanies melting snow. If you live where you get snow, I think you know what I mean. But much better than arctic cold and getting more snow!
The snow on the deck above my door is melting like crazy so it looks like it’s raining outside my door and I had to slide the table outside my door to the other side of the door (away from all the dripping and melting) so that my grocery order, which should be arrivng in the next hour or so, can be put on it. I was very hungry when I placed the order but I did well in not ordering every snack food I wanted. I did have to order a few treats because well it’s NY’s weekend so treats area always in order for that.
And as long as I was outside, I snapped a couple quick photos. Here’s where I am on Cardinal points. On the lower left, I made it down to the center point of the chart. I have a flower cluster to add to top and bottom area of the top section and then I will be in the center point of the chart there as well.
And here’s a photo of a pretty fabric and a pretty project bag from Hometown Needleworks. The fabric color is Lake Superior Blue.
I think a wintery chart will be perfect on that fabric.
And speaking of charts, I have been wanting this chart ever since it came out, but it was always out of stock when I thought to go look for it in various places. Finally, it has arrived, along with the floss, and I think I might have to start this little cutie this afternoon.
I need to stitch it on 20 count fabric in order to make it to fit into the tart pan, which I already have, but I think I know just the fabric to use but can’t remember what it’s called. Stash diving for fabric I will go.
And lastly, below is today’s FCA. FCA rules are located at the tab on the top of the blog (I feel like a broken record repeating that but we seen to be picking up some new blog readers that are emailing me to ask what that means so I’ll just repeat it a few times more.) 🙂 I started posting FCAs on Dec. 23 so that must make this the 7th one.
updated 12-29-22 8:20 PM — THE FCA FOR THE CHART BELOW HAS NOW ENDED AND WE HAVE AN ADOPTEE. ALL FCA RECIPIENTS FROM 12-23-22 THRU 12-31-22 FCAs WILL BE ANNOUNCED ON NEW YEAR’S DAY
