It Was a Dark and Dreary Day...

Don't you just love those dreary, rainy days when the temps are cool and the breeze is blowing?  Most folks find it a little depressing, but I love it because it's the perfect weather for curling up with a good book or, better yet, a beautiful sampler!

I don't do a lot of SALs (stitch-a-longs, for the non-stitchers in the crowd), but I was intrigued by the Star Sampler SAL by Periphaeria Designs.  I spent quite a bit of time choosing my fabric and floss. I'm not normally enticed by warm colors, but this piece of fabric that I had in my stash just called out to me. I haven't worked on it in a few weeks, but the final section was made available this week. So I'm thinking I'll finish it this week.
Of course, those ornaments won't stitch themselves, so who knows what I'll be working on. I'm starting to think I have Stitcher's ADD!


  1. I am with you, Tommye on the dreary, rainy days...I just love them. Not a steady diet but once in awhile, they are great!

    Your sal sampler is gorgeous!!

  2. I love a dreary day every now and again!! Love this piece!
