Hiya. Hope you are safe and warm! We got our share but not as much as the east. Mark has 4 wheel drive so we waited for him to take us to the lab and run a few errands. The main roads were fine but not the side streets.
I found my error on Abe and now I am trying to replicate the antique with messy stitches. It appears she went left to right in some areas and top to bottom in others. Many are tight thin rows and others are loose. The linen and its age are probably why it looks this way and I doubt if I can mimic its appearance.
But I'm giving it a go. Stitching in two different directions and changing my tension might work or it may end up looking ....well.... crappy. Think it will work? I'll find out soon enough. But what a darling sampler.
The boys are double decking for warmth. Squeak showed up again this morning, only the second time in a month. I can see his tracks in the snow and think he is staying at a foreclosed mess on the street. They are poisoning the coons and opossums to get rid of them but Squeak looks good. They are all still afraid of Yellow Cat.
I shoveled by hand yesterday instead of using the blower and managed 20 minutes of the 30 minute Leslie DVD today. Took me a while to recover and I won't push it, but I'll get there eventually. Cardiologist on Monday - wait till he sees I've gained 30# since the last visit.
Thanks for visiting.
