In Stitches

What Happened to...

This is what I woke up to this morning, charming isn't it? ;) I suppose if we didn't have to drive in it it would be fantastic. I'm just not ready for this...maybe it's not too early for those Xmas decorations after all. ;D

I started on Bird's of a Feather's Santa Claus last night. I am using a DMC 14 ct denim blue that I bought on clearance sometime last year. So far it seems like a good choice for this pattern. :) I plan on changing the pattern a bit, I just don't see a reason he needs a white zigzag on his suit and I changed some of the colors for things I had on hand. It's going fast though which is great!

When comparing large projects versus small projects, which do you get more excited about finishing?

I get more excited when I'm about to finish a large project. Since they take so much longer there is that little gleeful feeling that overtakes me when I know I won't have to stitch on it any longer and I can get onto framing. I think that when I stitch small things sometimes the finish is anti-climatic, sort of "oh I'm done?", where as the bigger projects you can just anticipate the finish. I do find it harder to move to a next project after stitching a large one. I've spent so much time on it that it sometimes becomes hard to imagine stitching anything else. LOL

Enjoy your day and thanks for all the lovely comments!

Hi Kim,
I cant' believe it! Can you imagine that? Snow! We sometimes spend a whole year without seeing any! It's such a joy... except for driving!
Not time to decorate for Christmas! Your thanksgiving decoration is just too great! Enjoy! One thing at a time as they say around here...
I agree with you: I don't see why Santa should have a zigzag... He looks so fun to stitch, though!
I really like the fabric you're using, in fact, I have the same one in 18 count...
SBQ: I really ought to answer this on my blog... OK! Off I go! Can I copy your answer? It perfectly reflects my own thought!
Don't worry, I'm an honest woman...
Take care!

What a beautiful snowy white! I live in San Diego and we don't get snow here. Can't wait to see the progress on Santa. I love this time of year.

Wow! It's snowing already??

I just moved to Florida this year and there is no snow here which I find it very weird. I felt like I missed September and October with the hot weather down here.
