Another A&E and a Bird in Bough

       Since my last stitching post I've been able to complete The Scarlett House - Adam & Eve. I love all those lovely red alphabets and the bird that accompanies Adam and Eve.

      My plan after finishing Emma Miles was to work on one of the Scarlet Letter WIPs. Well... that didn't happen. Once I saw Bird in Bough on Nicola's Scarlet Letter Year I knew I had to stitch it for myself ASAP. BiB is stitched on 36 ct. Vintage Pecan Butter by Lakeside Linens with a variety of silks.

      Don't you love the bird? I think you'll have noticed by now that I'm attracted to samplers that include birds. I'm in the process of creating a 'bird' sampler wall in my sewing room. Of course I'm not quite sure that Emma and Owen consider the room to be a sewing room as their kennel and toys now occupy the majority of the space in what was my sewing room.
       We survived the major ice storm that hit our area yesterday. Unfortunately the streets, sidewalks and driveways are still a sheet of ice and another storm is heading our way tonight. The poor pups are begining to suffer from cabin fever. Today is the second day of limited outdoor time and no long walk. Let's hope this all passes soon and we can get back to our normal routine.
      A dear friend sent me a surprise gift the other day. Isn't it just perfect for Corgi Cottage?
Until next time....
