Patriotic Snowangel


I finished stitching this snow angel last night, when the news was on. The Patriotic SnowAngel was stitched on 28 count Little Blue Boy lugana, using the recommended threads except for the carrot nose. I couldnt find the floss for the nose, so I had went to Joann's to get the floss, and I end up misplacing the skein somewhere in the house. I couldn't believe it. If I had a child or a pet, or even a husband, I could blame it on one of them, but I lost it somewhere. So I used WDW Pumpkin thread for the nose. The pattern came from American School of Needlework Angelic Snowmen leaflet. I will be finishing it as a pinkeep.

Any one watched The Marriage Ref after the olympics? First, I was disappointed how NBC cutted the closings into 2 parts. I was stitching and was half paying attention to what Bob Costas was saying so I didnt even know they were coming back on at 1130 until this morning, lol. Of course I was too late to watch it then. It sure was not smart of them to cut the program into 2 parts. To me, I thought that was it, The End of the 2010 Olympics, and regular programming will go on. I wonder how many people saw the closing credits after the news. By then, I was watching another channel as I was kitting another pattern. Anyways, ( talking about getting off track, lol) I did watched The Marriage Ref and I laughed my butt off. There was even one time I was laughing so much, I laughed right through the commericals and crying at the same time.

I kitted Little House Needleworks Pear Tree last night. I was able to find all the threads I needed for the pattern. It is going to be stitched on 28 ct mushroom evenweave material. I wanted to stitched in February but I ran out of time. So I will try to stitch 2 ornaments, since I have He's a Flake in my pile and Snowy Pines will be shipped out this week to me.

My birthday is next month, so I have decided I will be celebrating it with all of you. I will be holding my first giveaway in a few weeks. I am still deciding what I am giving away. Any suggestions will be helpful. I found out my friend and I will be seeing Mary Poppins on June 23. He got front row seats on top of that. It is going to be so awesome! I can not wait. I think I am more excited about the musical than for my birthday.

The angel is so cute, wanted to watch the Marriage Ref but forgot and don't usually watch NBC. For your giveaway, either a pattern you have really enjoyed and will never do again or maybe some floss or fabric.

Happy Birthday!!! Your finish is so cute. I didn't watch it, I forgot it was going to be on. It did look like it was going to be pretty funny.
