Snowy stitching

This has been quite a productive week for me...well for stitching anyway! I didn't fancy starting another big project so decide to look for something small and quick to stitch. The last Margaret Sherry mouse was a joy to stitch (well apart from the back stitch!) so I decided to make good use of the bookazine and stitch something else from it. Here are the little cuties that I stitched this week -  mouse number 1.....



...and mouse number 2.....


...and since we got two inches of snow, (yup, It's April and still snowing!) it didn't feel too weird to be stitching Christmas designs! There is a third mouse in the set, so I might start that at the weekend.

I'm still waiting on the finishing fairy to come and sprinkle some finishing dust on the pile of projects that are waiting to be finished....there only seems to be regular dust accumulating on them! These two little mice have been abandoned to the pile too.


Here's something rather amusing that I found on-line that made me giggle. I think it's something we probably all do....


Hands up all those guilty of pro-cross-tin-ating. (I should probably have both hands up!) It's from a company called Heartfelt Stitches in Texas...road trip anyone?!!!

Until next time...happy stitching!
