WIP Update

Its that time again, well actually I guess Wednesday WIP's sounds better but I missed out yesterday. We had a huge amount of snow drop on us yesterday - 30 cm (12"?). Although it sure makes everything look so pretty with all the trees covered in snow, it really makes a mess to drive anywhere until the streets can get cleaned better. And I realized how bad traction my SUV gets, when I went into a slide and narrowly missed hitting somebody!

Today is clear and sunny though chilly. I dropped by the library while doing my work run, and found a Philippa Gregory book called The Queen's Fool. Judy (Crazee 4 Books) gave a great book review on this, and since I have already read The Other Boleyn Girl (can't wait to see the movie) and Fallen Skies, I was eager to pick this one up.

So here they are~
Carriage House Samplings Alphabet series ~ J is for Jump is finished!

Houses of Hawk Run Hollow ~ I made some great progress on this one, the house itself is done sans roof!

Paradigm Lost ~ sorry for the blurry pic. Its coming along slow but surely. And tonight is PL night so I hope to make some progress on the motif on the right.

I picked up Sampler Gameboard again and finished up a couple more houses.

That's it for me ~ Hope you all have a great day!

We are still waiting for some more snow to fall. :) Glad you didn't have an accident. Sometimes it is just an blink of an eye away...

I think you got waaaay further on your WIPs than I did ... and really, if money were no object, I think I would have bought every yellow flower in the entire grocery store.

I'm beyond sick of winter -- it just blows!! LOL

Wow, your fingers have been flying lately. Your progress on everything is great!
We only caught the tail end of that storm here. Not nearly as much snow fell as in TO. Aren't you sick of digging out?

You've been quite busy, they all look lovely. It must be hard to decide which one to pick up and work on. Your earlier finish of Home of a Neeldleworker was beautiful. I have Home of a Needleworker (too) on order to do at some point.

I'm reading The Other Boleyn Girl and loving it. The movie looks so good! Your WIPs are all gorgeous - wish I had a CHS project right now. I'm so tempted to start Shores.
