More Pictures and Blizzard 2010

Stitched by Berly

Like I promise, I have pictures from my Ornament Round Robin. I sew them into mini pillows. The stitching is beautiful. All of them were stitch on 14 ct aida with silver metallics. I asked my friends to add pearl blending filament to the white. I thought it might be too much with the silver, but it came out good.

The next set of pictures are from the blizzard. Since I had a cold, I slept through most of it, lol. The first one was taken from my back door around 2 pm.

The second picture is from the front door around 11:30 pm. I was sleeping weird due to the cold. The last three pictures was taken at 730 am, Monday morning.This one I wanted to the view of the amount of snow piled against the door. I guess I didnt angled the camera right, but than I had just got up.

This picture I caught the wind giving me a show, and I captured it. It is one of my favorites. You will think it is a blurry picture, but it is the wind.The last picture is from the front door. As you notice, the car in front is bury in the snow. The car by the yellow sign is not covered. It is very weird but the second was in the open and the other was closer to the building. I had went back to bed and I woke up, the sun was shining and the sky was a beautiful blue.
I want to thank you all for your comments. I appreciated all of them and very touch. You are all great and understanding bunch of friends from all over the world. I am honor to know you and to continue our friendship in the coming year.
