some snow pictures but first...

...my first finish for this year. Last weekend while the children are outside playing in the snow i started this small design. Finish it the next day but i don't know yet how to finish it off. I started another small snowman design and am nearly done with it into an ornament so will show it next post.

Prairie Schooler design
JCS 2009
32 ct natural linen
DMC threads


All the snow pictures were taken last saturday and sunday.
((you can click on all pictures to enlarge if you want))

We were on the way to visit hubby's sister and saw one of our friend so stopped by and took some pictures. Children were at the dyke with their friends and doesnt want to come along.

So glad to hear Julianne recieved this just before Christmas as i sent it quite late. I think it took only a week.
Just heard from Shari last night that this ornament finally arrived, it took nearly six weeks!! But i am glad it wasn't lost.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog especially to those who take the time to leave me a comment. I do appreciate them so much. For those who had asked about if i am going to join in again next year for the dive... i don't know!!!

Your snowman finish is adorable!!! I love the one that you did for Shari!!! The ornaments for Julianne are pretty!!! That is alot of snow. So glad I live where we don't get snow. I prefer the 70's in the winter.

Christine said...

Lovely ornaments, and so appropriate with all this snow

Carol said...

Love the snow pictures, Mylene--at least the sun is shining and you have a beautiful blue sky! We are also getting a lot of snow, but the skies are gray and dreary. The good thing, though, is that it is a great time to just stay inside and stitch!

Love your first 2010 finish :)

Irene said...

Great first finish for the year ! Looks like you had a lot of fun in the snow.

Siobhan said...

Beautiful ornaments, Mylene! I'm glad everything arrived where they needed to go. Great snow pics, too. Stay warm!

Sally said...

Lovely photos Mylene. Love seeing the snow but hate it when it starts to thaw then freezes and that's what it's been like here. Looks like we're in for snow all weekend too!

Love the ornament finishes.

Brigitte said...

Everyone seems to enjoy the snow. The last time that I remember enjoying the snow was when my kids were still little and we went sledging and putting up snowmen and igloos. Nowadays I just wait for the snow to melt.
But I love to stitch snowy pictures. Yours are very beautiful.

MaryT said...

Really cute! Can hardly wait to see how you finish. Also the snow pictures are really nice too, although I will stay in by the fire:0)

CJ said...

Mylene -

Have a great day!!

Your PS finish is very cute as are the ornaments you sent to Julianne and Shari. I sent an exchange a few years back that took almost three months to arrive, I was very worried about that one.

Love the snow pictures, it's lovely to look at when we have very hot weather here.

Karan said...

Another lovely finish. Glad the missing ornie arrived safely. More great pics there Mylene. I've stayed safely indoors - far too cold and slippery out for me. :0)
