Last week I lost my electricity from the winter storm. Again I found myself in my studio looking out the window and drawing by candlelight.

Then the next day came and this is the result of the snowstorm…

The art I worked on during the storm and by candlelight was silhouettes.

I really hope not having electricity 3 times in a month does not become the norm for this winter. It was beyond freezing and it was exhausting to be in a cold house.



Derby in Pictures

I have been working on Derby from Everything Cross stitch since June 2019.

I had a slight set-back stitching last week. First there’s a mistake in my counting and had to spend time figuring out where I made my mistake.

The other set-back is from having a winter snowstorm and my electricity went out for two days. It was impossible to stitch.

Here’s is the updated stitching progress.

I plan to stitch some today and get back on track.

Happy stitching
