While I have power.....todays update....

I wish I could tell you that the snow has melted and there is no ice..

I cannot tell you that because we are still like a virtual ice skating rink here...ice is laying heavy on the beautiful pine trees..

That is why I decided last night that I would continue with Anniversaries of the Heart~Blackbird Designs
and begin my 8th block..

Please excuse my lack of backdrop design elements...I am sitting in the stitch chair where the best lighting is.....

I thought I would take a quick snap and post while we still have power....
Winter Garden

Where ever you are, I hope your day is going well and you are spending some time relaxing and enjoying yourself~~~

Peace,

Faye

It's lovely Faye! I am still trying to decide if I want to stitch this all on one piece!

I hope you stay warm and don't loose your power.

Sharlotte said...

This is coming along nicely Faye!!I hope you don't loose your power! Gotta love this time of year!

Margaret said...

It's beautiful, Faye. I hope you don't lose power. We lost our power for quite a while with that blizzard that went through. Not fun. Stay warm!

Cathy from Kentucky said...

WOW I thought it was cold here in KY but I think it is a lot worse there as for now, no ice. Be careful and stay warm.

Lesleyanne said...

Gosh! I hope you don't lose power.
Lovely design, it's looking great

Sounds like we're in the same "snow boat" :)I hope your power stays on; we hold our breath around here, but so far we've not lost power. Winter garden is looking good!

That is really looking pretty, Faye! Stay inside and be safe. We're getting snow right now but no ice.... I hope!

Beautiful - enjoy the stitching time!

Jules said...

Beautiful! Stay warm and safe. I am so glad to live in FL. I hated dealing with icy conditions.

Michelle said...

Your Snow Garden is looking beautiful. An appropriate piece to be stitching! Hope your power stays on and that the ice is gone soon!

Myra said...

You are making me want to stitch these Faye and lord knows I don't need another thing to stitch right now. LOL I hope your power stays on - be safe girl! Sorry to hear about the Saturday makeup days - that bites!

Deb said...

I saw pictures on the news of some crazy person skating down the roads! I can't believe your weather. Stay safe and warm and take advantage of being inside. Winter Garden looks wonderful and I hope that the power stays on so you can stitch some more of it.

Your piece looks gorgeous. I hope you don't lose power. Stay safe and warm (written from the frozen realms of southeastern NC)!

Glenna said...

May the snow melt quickly and may your power not go out (just the worst, in my opinion is sitting around at 5 p.m. with nothing to do but go to bed). Snow garden is such a pretty stitch, and way more appropriate than you'd like, probably.

Faye,
Thank you my friend for your prayers! This poor family is so poor and the daughter Anglynn is the young momma that I keep under my wing. Her 11 month old and 2 year old just got temporarly removed from her since the baby got hurt. That happened yesterday and now today they have lost their house. (The baby fell down the stairs and fractured her skull, so until they determine that it was an accident the state took her kids away!) I know that family would never hurt those kids! So today is so heartbreaking for them, DFACS was suppose to come to their house tomorrow to make sure the house was safe for the kids to come back home too, now they have no house. Pray Faye, I'm pleading to God for his help for this family! Sorry to unload, but it's so hard to just watch and not be able to do anything. :(

Jennifer said...

While it feels cold enough for snow, all we got was rain! I could have used another day at home before tax season starts.

Hopefully you will keep your power so that you can stay warm and stitch through that lovely BBD on your mini vacation from school.

Stay safe!

Kathy said...

Snow days make great stitching days. It's beautiful.

Bonnie said...

Winter Garden is so pretty. I love the colors and the peacock.

I hope everything goes well and you don't lose power. We came through oksy but I want that skating rink in the front yard to go away.

Pointed Stitcher said...

This is coming along beautifully. It's such a delicate piece. I'm sitting in the middle of a blizzard right now also.

Sherry said...

Love the BBD! We are still ice around here too. Stay inside and stay safe!

Carol said...

Hopefully your power stayed on, Faye. I hate the thought of the ice taking down branches from those beautiful pine trees--hope it melts quickly.

Your BBD piece is gorgeous--very soft and peaceful looking. I hope things warm up down there for you soon :)

Susan in SC said...

I really like this. I know what you mean about power. We are holding our breath hoping that the power does not go out as well. Happy stitching!!

Nan said...

Your BBD piece is absolutely beautiful Faye.
The colors in it are so peaceful and serene.
Hope the power holds out for you. Still no school?
We are out today so I'm going to stitch my day away!

Giovanna said...

Oh that's so pretty! I hope you'll be OK, losing power is no fun at all.

Kellie said...

Your AoTH is beautiful! I hope you are able to stay warm and do not lose power.

Charlene ♥ SC said...

Great days for stitching, aren't they? Loving every needle-full. Your Snow Garden is beautiful!!

Mary said...

Lovely! Hope you will continue to have power. Stay warm and keep stitching!

Natalia said...

Faye, I love your AoTH ! Would you mind letting me know what fabric you are using for it? You've probably mentioned it before, but I didn't catch it. Thanks !!

Bekca said...

I have to agree that snow days do make good stitching days, I wish we had more! But I hope the weather's not giving you too much trouble and fingers crossed that you don't lose your power. Stay warm.

Sherry :o) said...

Love your progress on your BBD. I hope you stay warm with power - but enjoy your unexpected time at home...

Littlebit said...

I love Snow Garden! I just with the literal one that we have right now would melt. lol. Stay warm and safe!

Sally said...

It is gorgeous Faye!
