IHSW January

I hope everyone had a great weekend and found some time to stitch :) The sun finally came out this weekend after nine days of clouds, four inches of rain, snow (a rarity for Alabama), and cold. I was definitely ready for some sun.

This weekend, I worked on Cattleya Orchid by Chatelaine. Its bright colors were refreshing after all the icky weather. I finished the center square (including the over-one center) and started working on the big orchid. The little orchids around the center are so adorable :) I love the way this one is turning out.

Thanks for stopping by, and I look forward to seeing everyone's stitching progress :)
