Goodness....three posts in one week!!!!!!!

Have I said lately how much I love this group?!?! Tonia is a wonderful person and her designs are just adorable. I plan on purchasing the mystery SAL that they did back in August as soon as I get some extra $$. Go on over and check it out, if you like purple you will LOVE that SAL.

I finished the January part for the SAL that I was talking about a post or two ago. I'm not too sure I like the silver filament that I paired with the white floss for the snowman but I do like how it turned out on the snowflakes. I just didn't think about the color of the fabric back in October/November when we first heard about it and I grabbed what I had in my stash and cut it to size the same day we heard about it! I had to come up with something to go with the white so it wouldn't get lost in the background. I think perhaps I should have gone with a lighter silver or perhaps a blue. I didn't have a blue so I went with the darkest silver I had in my stash. I think I need to go on a stash buying spree (sale items if possible) as soon as I get some extra cash in and get some more material and different types of floss.

I have received the pattern for the February part so I will be starting on that sometime today or tomorrow. Probably tomorrow as the kids will be home soon as it's only half a day of school today. They had Friday and Monday off, went to school yesterday and only had half day today. I think they should have pushed the half day to another week don't you?!?! Once I finish the February I will jump back on my Autumn (Four Season SAL) and try to get that done so I will have only one more season to do and that will be completed. Then I get to figure out how to finish it. Any suggestions??

Happy Wednesday everyone!
