Cross Stitch Happy

Wednesday, November 15, 2006

Vancouver, British Columbia is known for having a lot of rain, but these few days have been unreal. It started raining last evening and poured buckets all night and day long. With the rain we also had sever winds, knocking trees down. The ferries to Vancouver Island were cancelled due to the winds. Hundreds of homes have been without power. I saw two accidents on my way to work this morning and it seemed to take forever to get home. I saw people standing at bus stops get drenched from cars driving through puddles on the road. It finally stopped this evening.
Sounds like a perfect day for sitting by the fire and stitching, but no I had to work ! Such is life.


As for stitching, last night I started this Little House Needlework called Heart and Home from the 1999 leaflet Joy in the Journey. The colors of the scan do not do this justice, it is much more vibrant.

Heart and Home is looking beautiful Irene. I must make a start on something from the Joy in the Journey booklet soon. I seem to spending too much time on larger pieces and I think that's going to have to change in the New Year!

Thanks Sally. This one seems to be going fairly quickly.
