This is the second block in the 'Frosty Forest' series.
I'm not using the buttons...so where the snowflake button would have gone,
I stitched a female cardinal flying.
I love her.
I love the trees in this block too. The colors are gorgeous!

In my backyard...

My sweet female cardinal!!

Our Christmas decorations are mostly taken down and I am a bit sad about that.

My Pooh Bear ornaments are put away. I've had this one since I was 7 years old.
I am happy that the house is less crowded though.
We rearranged the furniture back and I vacuumed all the pine needles up.
Now back to stitching and sewing!
I hope everyone had a wonderful New Years Eve and
New Years Day!

Amy, I love your new start. That is going to be a very pretty piece. I am also feeling a bit sad taking down the decorations this year. It's funny, some years I'm ready to have them down but not this year.

Love your Frosty Forest! And I love your little bird additions. Sweet! We are just back from my parents house in Florida so no decorations to put away at our home but my mom had heaps to put away. I love driving in there driveway the first time we pull in there at night at Christmas and seeing all her pretty lights twinkling from the windows! Always makes me sad when it's all over for another year. I can't wait to get back to stitching either, though!

I'm looking forward to stitching this next one, yours looks great. Our decorations are down too, it's good to get back to 'normal' but it looks so bare. Happy 2014.

That's really pretty, well done. Look forward to seeing it grow.

Oh, I love the second in that series -- so pretty! I can see why it's your favorite so far! Your Pooh is so cute. So precious too!
