While I was working on cleaning up my sewing room I came across a WIP that is full coverage. I looked at it and decided it was done. Is it really done? No, but it is too much to do to get it completely done. I liked the page I had completed so I will frame it and be done with it.

I have been trying to organize (clean up!) my sewing room. I've made progress and discoveries. I've found things I didn't remember having. I've found many WIPs. I ran across a project that was mostly done so I decided to see if I could finish it up. A year ago (maybe two years) I couldn't get myself to work on this. I was wondering how things would go this time around. I am happy to say that I finished the stitching.
I had to walk inside again as it is very cold today, 12 degrees.

I finished the Just Nan Mouse that goes with the pyramid.
These are the two mice I've made lately. I think the first one actually goes better with the pyramid house.
Then I got to thinking, how many mice to I have? I gave one to my grandkids so these are the ones I have in my curio. Well, two of them are actually strawberries that look the same. Did I stitch the strawberry twice?

This will be a week of finishes. The first finish I have for you is the Just Nan pyramid.
We woke up to a few inches of snow yesterday and a few more inches of snow today. Snow is pretty if you don't have to go out in it - or shovel it.

I have made some progress on the strawberry pin cushion by Victoria Laine from the Inspirations design collection.
The pattern calls for a black outline around all the parts of the strawberry but I thought that was a bit harsh. I started with a dark red outline around the berry instead and I like that better. I am still deciding whether to put a dark green outline around the big leaf. I wish I were better at shading the four green colors on the sepal.
I went through some of my stitchy stuff and was amazed at all the stuff that I didn't remember having. I am not into ribbon embroidery anymore and decided to donate my ribbon embroidery books to the library.
It is cold and snowy today so I made myself walk half a mile inside my house before breakfast. I will walk more later as I want to get at least up to a mile. That's my goal for today.

It is really cold today. It started out at 6 degrees and has doubled that but it is still too cold for walking.
In my quest for the perfect way to transfer a design I ordered some heat erasable pens from Love Sew. I didn't realize that I was ordering so many!

I saw this pattern being stitched by someone on Facebook and it was so cute.
Today is an infusion day. It's too cold to go walking. I hope to finish stitching the forget-me-not pincushion, I only have one bee wing to go.
