North Wind

The weather is very cold but no snow. I am so envious of all of you that have some. I love snow and can't wait! The title of the post is North Wind, which is another LHN design that I finished this week. The picture is further down. This is another LHN design that I did awhile back. It is currently residing in my family room.
I left a comment awhile back on Sharon Cresent's blog and she decided to draw a name and send alittle something. I was the lucky winner and is was so much more than a little something. 10 skiens of Belle Soie, lovely sheep pins and my favorite needles by Bohin. Everyone that knows me, knows that Cresent Colours and Belle Soie are my favorite fibers. Sharon, thanks for the wonderful gifts!
s I had this stretched and popped it into the frame that Iam using for all of the anniversary series. This one was in honor of my step-dads mom, who I adored. She was a great woman.

Finished my last ornie. I haven't done the finishing on any of them yet. Hopefully I will find the time next week. I have been busy doing all the stuff I have let go for awhile. You can only ignore it for so long.

Yes it's another LHN design. North Wind. I just loved the robin and the barn so had to stitch it. I haven't decided how I will finish it yet. Any ideas? I used 32 ct Tundra by LSL and Cresent Color fibers. It was a fun stitch.

Thanks for all the kind comments. I love them all. Sammi really loves it when she gets a mention. Until next time...Happy Stitching. Deborah

I ordered the North Wind chart and it is on its way. Isn't it an old child's poem? ...And what will the robin do then, poor thing? He'll hide in the barn and keep himself warm, and hide his head under his wing, poor thing. I don't remember it exactly--help someone!

You have done some lovely stitching there. I love the colors in Winter Wind.
Your floss colors are gorgeous.
Snow, I run away from snow! and live in Arizona in the winter. But, I am ready to brave the snow and go home to visit my grandchildren over Christmas.
I could maybe mail you some while I'm there ROFL

Wow Deborah! You've been really busy in the stitching department ;o) Congrats on your latest finishes. What about a pillow? I would probably frame it myself.

Gorgeous finishes, Deborah! I love the robin one--haven't seen that before. That brought back lots of memories of when I was student teaching and I taught my kindergarteners that song about the poor robin :)

Congratulations on a wonderful win--enjoy!

You've been a busy stitcher! I love all of your finishes particularily Norht Wind. I'm partial to winter scenes. Speaking of which, we're expecting a big dump this weekend of the white stuff. Wouldn't it be great if I could send some your way?

Lovely finishes, Deborah! I just got The North Wind in the mail yesterday. I couldn't resist that robin or barn either! Congrats on winning all those lovely silks. Belle Soie is my favorite, too. :)

Janice Boucher said...

Beautiful as usual. I love the North Wind. You know me and snow.... bring it on! Love it! Am so partial to stitching Winter scenes.
I also enjoy seeing your Willirayes in the pics. They really compliment your stitched pieces. Nice little vignettes.
Give my pal Sammi a pet for me.

Jennifer said...

I LOVE Belle Soie too but have not much of it due to the cost. But my preference is Crescent Colors for cotton too which I have a bunch of now.

I just love that last design. Just adorable.
