It's REALLY snowin' here today!!! In my area this looks like it's going to be the 1st real snow. There's been a few flurries lately but this time it's beginning to really cover the ground and pile up. I think snow is one of the most beautiful things there is,especially at nite when it sparkles like millions of diamonds!!! There are people who'd like to smack me when I say that!!!! They say,sure you don't have to drive in it LOL!!!! Anyhoo got some new wool last week and couldn't resist hooking. The funny thing is that I didn't actually use the new wool except for what I used on the snowman. I just got my monks cloth out,put a piece in my Grubers hoop,drew a circle and drew this design freehand. He was going to have a feather tree,but then I decided not. I didn't want him to look too Christmasee. Back in the day when I decorated everything that didn't move for Christmas,I always thought the house looked nekked after Christmas was put away. So one time I decided that after Christmas was when all the snowmen should come out!!
So Needless to say those items you say in the last post have yet to be fixed or finished!!! AND now I have another rug and another stitchery goin'!!!! BTW the OTT light is GREAT!!!! And after 3X's we got the right one and this one also works!!! Haven't been sweating my head off the past few nites!! The magnifier is a little difficult to position right next to my chair and to stitch I kinda have to stay in one position. Also I keep hitting it when I bring the thread up. Last nite I stitched a little bit with my cheater glasses and the Ott light on. I'm stitching 1 thread over 2 on 28 count linen and the OTT definately helped. I think I'm going to just stitch a little while everyday instead of long stretches of it to try to keep the brain pain down.
One thing that I do have to say. The OTT light is UGLEE but it works!!! Sure not as neat as the antique floor lamp that I've been using!!!!
My snowman rug is on ebay right now if you'd like to take a closer look and if you do,I Thank You!!!!
