No Snow - Just Frost in the Morning

Design - Wee One "Snow"
Designer -Heart in Hand
Fabric - 32 count Ice Blue linen
Fibers - GAST & WDW - 2 strands over 2 threads
Started - 3 February 2012
Completed - 5 February 2012

A fun little piece - nice to stitch on a colored fabric too.

I probably blog too much about Down to Earth.
I love that store.

Besides an outdoor nursery, Down to Earth has a wonderful home goods and
 gardening supplies. Table linens, Fiestaware, knitted socks, bulbs, seeds, watering cans, and baskets.  I was in Heaven - Color Sensory Overload!

Out in the nursery I spied my favorite color combo for primroses - yellow and purple.

The Nursery area was awash with the smell of blooming Daphne.

Inside the store - lots of treasures...

I thought these bags were lovely and practical - they fold up into a small coin-purse size pouch.

Someday I'm going to get a pair of Bogs - they are supposed to be supremely comfortable.

Down to Earth has the best hand-drawn signs too.

I haven't grown sweet peas in forever...I bought a couple of packets to try this Spring.

Seems like this shop is made for you. It's fun to see what you show us...I don't know that I have a store quite like that around here.

Like your little Snow stitch, too. I bet it's headed for a spot in a future header.

Little snow stitch is set off to perfection with the button and the fabric colour. I love the cleverly drawn sign - it's like a biology lesson.

The "snow" stitch is just adorable!! That looks like a wonderful store. I saw two beautiful shades of blue and purple primrose today. Now I'm looking for a place to put them.

You are on a stitching roll, Beth. Beautiful job. All those gardening pics, get me in the mood. Way up here in Northern Maine, spring won't be here for over 2 months. UGH.

Yellow and purple work so well together.
