More snow...but DIFFERENT snow!

Well, if you have followed my blog for a while you know that my husband also has taken up stitching, about a year ago he did his first project and is still stitching. Well, while we were in California, we went to Solvang, a cute little danish town and they have a lot of needlework stores there. And we went hog wild buying stash! We bought two projects though that are going to be "joint" projects....meaning we will BOTH be stitching on them.

Lord help us if we ever do split up, if these projects get finished that is one "custody battle" we will have to duke it out!!! lol! Anyway, without further adeu...Here is the first one it is called "Coming home for the Holidays", (From here on out on this blog will be called CH4TH...he he, sounds like something of the table of elements!) it is:

This is what it will look like when finished. Such a cozy holiday feel to it!

And here is our progress on it so far. He has done more than me...because I have been obsessed with my snowmen as of late, however...I did all the work on the house on the left, and he has done all the stuff to the right, that dark brown tree and such.

So, that is also what we have been up to. I am thinking I am going to start rotating again, cause I really want to work on some other projects other than the beloved snowmen I seem to be obsessed with lately.

And to make it easier for us to see who has stitched what on this piece, we have decided to highlight the pattern with different colored highlighters, yellow for him and pink for next time I share this piece you will be able to see who has done what as I will share that as well.

Oh! and I have other news as well, but this is a long post already so will share that in my next post!

Joyful stitching to you all!

That is going to be gorgeous when it's finished!

LMAO... that is so funny.

I believe I have that one in my stash.

I could only wish to have a hubby that would enjoy stitching too. Hey at least he likes woodworking and can make me frames. LOL

When you said that you were sharing I would have never imagined you meaning that you would both be sharing/stitching on the same piece of material. LOL TOO COOL!

My DH stitches as well, though he has his own set of charts that he prefers stitching from. He's actually the one that got us started. We needed something to do to curb nighttime snacking, and he thought stitching would be a good idea. It really took off from there.

We've stitched a couple pieces together (taking turns stitching - not stitching at the same time!) and it's a lot of fun.

That's a really neat idea to stitch on it together - will be beautiful!

Sharon said...

How cool is that! It looks great. It's a gorgeous project.

I am so jealous. I would love to have a stitching partner. Keep posting your progress.

Tama said...

That is so neat!
Sounds like you're going to have a lot of fun!!!
What was the other project?

This one looks fabulous when it is finished. It is interesting to see how fast you manage to finish it together lol. And who is going to stitch most of it =).
