SAL Update

Here is an update of my progress from last Thursday on the Snow Angel SAL I'm doing with Sally.  I didn't get in as much stitching as I would have liked, but the border is almost complete now.  If all goes well, I'm thinking I might be taking my last stitch by the end of the month.  Sally & I already have another SAL lined up for when this one is in the bag   : )
I was very happy to capture the following photos last week when we were experiencing good weather (snow, freezing rain, cold) rather than the mid 60s we're having today & the low 70s predicted for tomorrow. Doesn't Mr. & Mrs. Cardinal make a lovely couple?

I wish you all a very blessed day!

Seasonal Blog updates take me forever!

I can't believe you are experiencing temps in the 60s. We are preparing for yet another snow storm expected to hit on Wednesday! Perfect for a Ski State like VT.

Your stitching is lovely and your photo skills, impressive. :-)

Your cardinal couple would match cute as your header but they wouldn't be seasonal.
I'll happily take your warm temps!

Your stitching is lovely. Blogging can be fun, but the mechanics of it can be time consuming trying to figure things out. I feel your pain - HA!
Take care - think Spring -

Hello from Maine,
We are getting 12 inches of snow tomorrow night, My Daughter is putting her ski's in the car. I think your stitch work is lovely.
Wonder why I am not getting comments, I keep changing post's.
Better fill the bird feeders today and go to the store, before the storm.
Bye bye

Aww...the cardinal couple is adorable--what a great shot, Shirlee!

Lovely stitching on the Snow Angel piece, too--I look forward to seeing your finish.

We're getting more snow tomorrow after today's high of 56--such crazy March weather!

Great progress on your SAL. The cardinals are beautiful. We've had a few warmer days, but now we're in a winter weather warning as we have snow coming again. The prediction is for over 10 inches depending on when the rain turns to snow.

What a great picture of the cardinal couple!! Perfect timing! Was that the Brother flying by in the first one?? Just a blur... Your Angel SAL looks lovely. I look forward to your updates. Hugs!

Your WIP is coming on great. Those cardinals look like a perfect posing couple! They aren't really stuffed ones that you staged, are they? (Joking!)
