WIP Winter Cross Stitch

I was moving along quite well on my winter cross stitch when I realized I had a whole line that wasn't placed correctly and I had to frog it. Sigh.  Here it is now, minus the offending line.  The stitching doesn't show up very well as the colors are not very vibrant, but I still love it.
What do you have planned this weekend? I'm really going to try to get my bulbs planted (no really! I am!). I have a lunch date with an old high school friend! Can't wait to see her.  One vivid memory I have of her is that we often went to the park and picked violets in the Spring. She would collect a HUGE handful, making a lovely little bouquet, but my can't/won't-stick- to- it attitude would kick in and I would only have a small, non-impressive little bit to that wouldn't even fill out a small vase...funny how you remember things like that.

I hope your are having a lovely Saturday, thanks for stopping by!


  1. I love that pattern and you're doing a terrific job on it. Frogging is exasperating, isn't it?!

  2. I don't do cross stitching so I have no idea what frogging is .. I would think it had to be fun .. like leap frog ? LOL but from what you have said .. I think not now .. in any case this is s very pretty ! .. Jingle Bells would look gorgeous in a red thread .. it would really jump out .. but I am thinking blue is for what ice and snow is perhaps ?
    I used to do crewel work .. I kind of miss it .. maybe I should take it up again .. you may have inspired me girl !
    Joy : )

    1. Joy, you go girl! I've seen some beautiful crewel work! "Frogging" is ripping out stitches (riip, riip, riip) - not fun:)I think you're right, the feel of this design is "icy".

  4. Funny, I don't remember the violets, but we both loved flowers! Your sampler is beautiful, such pretty colors.
