Let It Snow!!!!!! Midnight Stroll

Hi! The weather is yucko!! Rain, sleet and just a little snow. The roads are bad here, so no going out today/tonite.


Lookie at this cute design I started last nite









Midnight Stroll by The Yankee Stitcher.
I am using 40 ct. Creme Brule R&R and recommended GA samplers.


I decided on the ornie I will stitch with the thread from the mystery santa. It will be the "Santa In the Moon" in the Just Cross Stitch Ornaments pg. 16

I finally ordered A Quaker Christmas by Bygone Stitches yesterday. I will study the chart before getting fabby. I am in no hurry to start it, but just had to get it ,lol.
I can't wait to download my Gift Of Stitching, I see I have in my mail. I made a label with my lightscribe. Hopefully I will find something little to which strikes my fancy in this issue.
I have a read a few blogs already before posting , haha I bet there is more now then I started with, lol. I'm not even peeking.
Off to bake some cookies.
Then I am off in my corner for my stitching fix.
Happy Stitching!!

Ranae, you got a pretty start with this one, which is a favorite of mine. I also love the ornament you're stitching for the exchange. I can tell our tastes run in the same direction. Lovely blog, and I had a very nice visit. Thanks for visiting mine, and hope you have fun with your baking!

That's a wonderful design and the fabric color seems almost good enough to eat ;o)

That is a cute design. Weren't the roads a mess!!! Terrible ice around here last night. Then, today, just rain.

I did try to get some stitching accomplished -- not much to show, yet.

Enjoy the day

Very nice start, I love the design. I'm glad you're not going out in that bad weather, the roads will be a mess.

I'm sure you'll find lots of nice ornaments in this months GOS issue. I just took a quick look at it, but there were several that caught my eye.

Midnight Stroll looks like a cute design. And I have been seriously tempted by Quaker Christmas. I'll probably cave in soon. Enjoy your stitching time.

Ranae, Thank you so much for the lovely comment at my blog! I'm so sorry I've been behind in blog reading. Now I had time and took a good look at your blog, you've been stitching a lot!

I just LOVE your Cirque des Cercles, congratulations, it's really beautiful! Your current WIPs are lovely, especially the Prairie Schooler design and the Midnight Stroll :) I see that you have received the mystery thread too :)
