Hollyberry Farm is Done But, First

We had another snowstorm on Friday.
It started as ice then turned to snow.  
We got about four inches the first part of the storm.
It stopped for a few hours until it was time to go home from work.
It ramped up again and dumped another three to four more inches.
The good thing is that it was in the 40's yesterday and 50's today.
It has melted and then some.  
I took these pictures yesterday morning before things started to melt.  
 The day before, the patio was bare and you could see grass where Buster's paths were.  
 Buster wouldn't go out the patio door because there was a drift infront of it.  
Once things started melting he was fine but, had snow balls stuck to him everytime he came back in.
The sky really was that shade of blue.  
That's what snow will do.
 I'm done with Christmas at Hollyberry Farm but, not finished.
I was concerned about the lack of fabric at the top.  
There is only about an inch.  
Once I started reading the directions to finish it, you fold the edge, press and then stitch it onto a piece of homespun fabric and then framed.
So, I'm fine....whew!
 The final close-up.  
I forgot about the dog just below Christmas and the roof embellishment.  
 Now, I'm trying to decide if I want the Summer one.  
Decisions, decisions!
I started Threadwork Primitives Cinnamon Hearts.  
I broke down and got it.  
It is a good thing I'm not part of that SAL stitching from your stash. 
I would have failed miserably.
Good thing I didn't take the challenge.  
I don't know if you have seen it, I think a lot of you have, the FB site dedicated to Prim:  
It is a group dedicated to all things Prim.  
I joined and have been enjoying the posts.  
As always I have had a busy weekend.
Yesterday, after running a few errands, we took Buster to my friend Arttie's house to see how her Shih Tzu and my Shih Tzu would get along so we can swap dog sitting services. 
We kept him at a kennel this fall but, I'm not exactly sure how happy he was.  
It is a very nice kennel and we have him groomed there but, he must be spoiled.  
The dogs got along fine so, it should work.  
Today after church, breakfast and visit with Mom, we saw Noah.  
It was good but, I liked Monuments Men better.  
Hope you had a great weekend.  
I looks like a better weather week. 
Keep on Stitching


  1. Hello Monica,

    Gosh you must be over having snow. Good luck with your stitching.

    Happy days.

  2. Congratulations on your Hollyberry finish! It is gorgeous. Nice start on Cinnamon Hearts too.
    I am hoping that you have seen the last of the snow. I hope that this week brings lots of sunshine and warmer temps your way.

  3. Congrats on finishing the stitching of Hollyberry Farm! It looks beautiful! I signed on for Cinnamon Heart too! Stacy and Nan sure know how to keep us busy, right? lol! ;-)
