A couple of nights ago I made a start on this month's ornament choice, Peace & Joy by the Drawn Thread, which I've had kitted up and in my stitching basket for a long time. That got me to thinking how it had been absolutely ages since I'd stitched any designs by Drawn Thread, which then lead me to search out an old work in progress, An Open Heart. I first started this way back in 2007!!!
As you can see, I'd stitched well over half of the design and then it's been sadly neglected ever since! About this time was when I was pregnant with Hannah and because I had terrible morning sickness for the first four months, my stitching mojo, along with everything else, lol, went out the window!
Well, the plan is now to stitch a few bands every week and it might just get finished before the end of 2012. I've always been a big fan of the Drawn Threads designs - Random Thoughts is one of my favourite pieces I've ever stitched.
Lastly for today, a not so good pic taken this morning from the end of our driveway of the thick snow covering the Ruahine Ranges, just to the west of where we live. This week we've had some stormy winter like weather past over the country, bringing with it a real cold snap. Brrrr!
Have a lovely day x
