Winchester House is Finished!!!!!

I put the final stitches in at 3:10 am Sunday Morning!!! I was so close to finishing last night that I just couldn't put it down. I spent the evening stitching while watching Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen. This is was the one that was on Masterpiece Theater. After that, I turned on my Discovery Dateline ID channel and spent the rest of the night watching "I (almost) got a away with it" and "Dateline: 48 hours mystery". For some strange reason I can watch these shows all night. BTW...if you click the title of this post...it will take you to the Winchester House Website so you can read more about it....if you are interested.

Today....I am either going to read all day long curled up in my warm wedding quilt or I will pull out one of my stitching projects. I have so many started that I don't know what to do with myself.
My Ozark Sampler group is starting a new RR in May. I have decided to do an afghan for my project. Not just any ol' afghan either. It is going to be a disney afghan!!! Most of you know that I have bought almost all the Disney Ornaments so I am going to put at least 26 of them on one afghan. I bought a cream colored Charles Craft afghan with a large stitchable center. I dyed this afghan a pale blue color. Once I get all the ornaments on the side....I am going to stitch Sorcerer Mickey right in the middle. This is going to be so pretty!!!!
As you can see....it is still snowing...in MARCH!!!

I can't believe you have it done already. Great work! The afghan will be so pretty. Look at all the snow you have, believe it or not things are turning green here. We didn't get the snow they said we would over the weekend.
