Back at It !!

Happy 2011 (and good riddance to 2010) !!

As you can see, I am back at HOHRH and am determined to finish it in 2011. I have been working on it pretty steadily and it is really coming along. I love the muted colors...BUT...I miss working with more vibrant I have come up with a plan.

You know that I am from New England and have very happy childhood memories of playing outside in the wintertime, whether it was sledding (we called it sliding), ice-skating, or just plain building a fort, so...

I have collected several ice-skating themed designs and plan to stitch them up. I then will display them all together on a Ice Skating themed wall through the winter months. They are:

Margaret Sherry's Ice Skating Hedgehog
Jeanette Crews' Skating Goose
PS 2009 Schooler Santa
LHN's Merry Skater and Happy Skater
DMC's 'Seraphina' Mouse Ice Skating
Mary Garry's Ice Skating Party
Primrose Needleworks 2008 JCS ornament
Alisena (Ukrainian) Ice Skating Calf

Not sure which one I'll start with, but am very excited!

P.S. The anniversary sampler has been given to my framer Bonnie.  Just know she will do a fabulous job!

Happy Stitching to Me and You!
