Stitching Away on Gathering Honey

Snow days make for great stitching time...not to mention chocolate cupcake baking. :)

I have had long breaks of not stitching on "Gathering Honey", and I'm just ready to knock it out. It has been a WIP for five years! While it is a large design with many color changes, half- and quarter-stitches, it would not have taken more than six months if  worked on diligently. Since I didn't put a time line on it or schedule specific times to cross stitch it, well...let's just say life got in the way...a lot. 
Above is the progress as of yesterday. It will need to be cleaned and pressed (pardon the wrinkles), but it's come a long way. The left side still needs to be back-stitched on the frame, bees and flowers in the top left corner. I think there is one more bee to be stitched just under those flowers, too. I'm so glad to be on the home stretch!

Snow Day!

School closed today at 11:00 and NO school tomorrow! Woohoo!! We have over 3 inches of snow and it's creating a bit of a challenge for our Boston Terrier, Lucy! She can't "grab" her soccer ball because it just scoots across the snow...so frustrating for her! She just looks at me as if to say, "Can't you make this stuff go away?!"
