We got about 10 inches of snow here yesterday. We went out early in the storm because I had been too tired to go grocery shopping the night before. Knowing it was extremely slippery, and not wanting to slip backwards, I gunned my car up a hill while making a left-hand turn and wound up doing a 180 in the middle of the road. Wheeee! We made it to the store, got a cartload of stuff and returned home without incident, so I celebrated not going into the ditch with a new start: "Holy Moses." It's a large--or at least a long--design at 128 stitches wide and 575 stitches high. I have decided to do another on-the-fly conversion to GAST and WDW--the colors are so nice, but even nicer with the variegated threads. Here's a floss which is called for in the sky: "Blessed Jess" by Crescent Colours. I love the pink-to-yellow of it. So far a very fun stitch. There's lots and lots of writing on it, so it should go quickly for most stitchers.
I worked on "Wisdom," but didn't make huge progress so I'll show you that next week. Here's my take on the weather with "Winter Welcome." I've made some substitutions to compensate for the darker linen, but I think it's turning out well. I might frog those two snowflakes; I don't like the glittery silver blending filament with the white DMC floss; it's reminiscent of white teeth with silver fillings. I prefer the clear/white blending filament in the snow on the lawn.
Pink: "Check the road conditions carefully and then proceed gingerly."
Happy week ahead, all.
