Don't you hate the dumb words the media creates? Snowmageddon. Snowverkill. Snowver. The DC area officially has had 55 inches of snow this year, and today's storm was about 12 inches of it. Woo hoo! I'm hoping for another day off--every day the government is closed, my firm is closed as well. I'm getting lots of stitching done, and lots of shoveling. The shoveling isn't worth looking at, but the stitching is: Here's the cutest chart that arrived in the one and only mail delivery we've received in about a week. It's Little by Little's Lil Bo Peep, and I ordered it from Shakespeare's Peddler's etsy shop. It came so fast that it must have flown with the snow! The start, using 40 count Lakeside Vintage something or other from my stash. It's charted for DMC, but I'm substituting (as usual). In this case I'm using NPI silks.
This is the Bo Peep chart.
And some late-night stitching on Christinia Cathcart. It's been awhile, and it's a shame. I can work on it late because it's on 32 count, which makes it a good evening project. Such bright colors.
And Holy Moses.
I left my stitching chair for a while to hack at the ice outside, and the blanket that had been on my lap was quickly taken over by a couple of the residents.
And our bunny picture today is of Fats, who lived with Alice and Bells and Nuage at Potentially Nervous. We're sad to say goodbye to Fats, who died of bad old cancer in spite of the fact that his mom moved heaven and earth to try to save him. Fats was a special bunny soul, and we're so sad to lose him. Go visit Alice, though; she has wonderful and humorous photos and videos of Fats, Nuage and Bells. We also lost our bunny friend Jellybaby a few weeks ago; we had just begun to know her.
Best wishes to all our bunny and stitchy blogger friends.
