I had a need to make a second Down Jingle Pot Road. I stitched the second one on a 32 count so it is just a bit smaller than the original one. Snow is coming? It is nasty rumor in my neck of the woods. 3 to 6 inches. If that happens tomorrow, perhaps, perhaps I can spend the day in my room doing some finishing of projects. Instead of spending most of the day driving to and from a distant dentist. It was worth the trip but it isn't my favorite thing to do.

Block #8 of the Stoney Creek Hummingbird Trellis afghan is complete. I feel a bit like I cheated because this block only has some floweres and the birds butt from above.

Thanks for the reminder about 'parking' threads. I haven't really tried it with this one. I actually have gotten quite good at judging how much floss I need for a small area of a color. I use the loop start, especially with this being an afghan. I am about half way across this block now? I really should be thinking about Christmas ornaments. But I do love stitching on an afghan. Especially with the ice and sleet that is happening outside my door.

I started in the corner and I have a daisy. I will be cussing soon. I have never cared much for confetti type stitching. (Just a few stitches of each color and they seem random like confetti.) At least it is warm to be under the afghan during this cold, cold, cold snap.

I didn't fall off the earth. I did seem very busy with lots of little details. Now the winter chill has descended on us and I am finally getting some stitching done. First I decided to work on Part 3 of the Sam Sarah project. The final parts arrived and I wanted to get it done.
