Snow in September

Even though I have not done a Slow Sunday Stitching post for a couple of weeks, I have been working on my counted cross stitch snowmen picture when we are travelling in the car.  This works well when the sun is shining and I have lots of light to see what I am doing, but part of our drive last weekend was though a rain storm so the stitching got put back into the bag.  This picture was taken just before it started to rain.



The last time I posted about my CCS project, it looked like this:


I added a second bird...


And more snow...


Now, my picture looks like this:


It just might get done before the snow flies.


BTW, I bought some Thread Heaven and since I started using it, I am getting a lot less tangled threads.  Thanks to whoever it was that suggested that!

  6. It's so hard to stay interested in sewing white on white. I think these snowmen are so cute and am enjoying seeing your progress. The only thing I've been able to sew on trips is hexies. I'm taking a different hand piecing project for our upcoming trip to the Kentucky. I hope it doesn't make give me motion sickness because I would like to get a bunch done.
