Completion #3 and some progress, and frustration

First, here is Feb. Flip-It Blocks framed- this is the one I am going to put on my desk at work and switch each  month.  I waited too long and missed January. lol I stitched this in 2004! Pitiful, isn't it, that I am just getting it framed.   In my defense, I had "ordered" a frame from my dad a while back and it was the wrong size- not sure what happened- and so it was delayed a bit.  I wasn't in any hurry.  (as you can see. lol)

This weekend was icy and snowy, and I was so excited I had a good reason to stay home, because I needed to frog my HE "Mr. Snow Tired", and I wanted to be able to frog what I had to and still have time to re-stitch what I pulled out.  Well I got quite a bit done- but ran out of WDW Whitewash!! And the threads that sometimes can be subbed weren't close enough this time.  So I have to wait til Tuesday when the quilt shop is open and see if they have some that is in the same dye lot.  I got some there last time I needed it I think so hopefully they will.  And now I think I have messed up on it again- I think it's workable but I want to get the white stitched first and make sure.  So the rest of the weekend I'm going to work on my Mary Engelbreit ornament.

Here are some pics of our snow- not much really but it got very icy so school is cancelled tomorrow.  I would love to stay home with the kids but the 1st is always a busy day for me at work so hopefully the daycare will be open, otherwise Rob will have to take the day off.  The main roads aren't too bad but please keep us in your prayers anyway that we will get there and back ok.  Here are a few pics-
You can tell we haven't shovelled! lol

David trying to hit Hanna with some snow/ice!

I don't know why he made that silly face..

Your Feb Flip-It is adorable...and the frame looks perfect too :)

Hope you are enjoying your snow-day. And I hope it's too cold for any more frogs :)

Myra said...

Your February piece is lovely. I hate to hear the frogs paid you a visit, I hope they have left now for good.

Looks like you and your family had a good time in the snow. We got out and enjoyed it a bit too.

Hi Tracey! I just discovered that you have my blog on your sidebar. Thanks! What a great idea to swap out the flip-its on your desk each month. Love the snow pics. Stay warm! Sherri

No new stitching progress as these two books have had me wrapped up- two more that I did not want to put down! Received this from NetGall...
