No Matter How Long the Winter, Spring is Sure To Come!

Happy New Year Everyone! I hope the Christmas season brought you joy and happiness and time spent with family and friends.  I also hope you had a little time to stitch.  I tried to get a little in everyday and saved some time to watch my favorite flosstube videos.  Here are some of my favorites...although I keep finding more to watch every week.

I love Shirl at Tranquil Stitches. She is from West Virginia.  I was born in West Virginia and lived there until I was 16.  I have lived in Texas for over 40 years! Well, that was hard to write! Anyway, I think I'm still a West Virginia girl at heart and Shirl is so sweet and gracious. And of course Kitten Stitcher...down to earth and I already feel like I know her and she loves cats.  I love cats...and dogs. She is sweet and funny.  I love Priscilla and Chelsea, especially because they are a mother/daughter team.  It is just great that they have the same love of stitching and like spending time together! The Kindred her projects and Farm Girl and I could go on and on.  Such inspiration!

Well here is my new design so you can think about Spring, if it is still cold and dreary where you live.
No Matter How Long The Winter, Spring Is Sure To Come

(This is what the drum looks like before it is finished.)  
Both pieces were stitched on R & R Reproductions Weathered Shingles.  It is a light gray linen.
Stitched with Classic Colorworks and Gentle Arts Sampler Threads
I used Vonna Pfieffer's tutorial to put together my drum.
The sampler on the right is attached to a square paper mache box (7 x 7).
