Hermit Weekend Update

Hello Friends,

Oh did I have a joyous weekend. My DB stayed gone overnight for work which left me and the pooches for a cross stitch crazy weekend.

Apart from bringing my Chihuahua for his yearly visit to the vet for all his shots, I didn't leave the house. It was cold and rainy so it didn't bother me at all.

I managed quite a bit of progress on Beauty and the Beast. Yay!

My last update we were still here.

And now........

And here is a little bit closer view of what I've done. Lots of counting since I decided to continue with the green on, what will eventually be, a tree.

At some point Saturday night Sunday morning, I picked up Snow White and began stitching Happy. Or at least that's who I think it is...

I then realized, as I was stitching his beard, that I miscounted. That's apparently what you get for starting a new project at 2 am. Needless to say I'm a little annoyed that I basically have to frog his whole face. So... I put him back down and picked up Beauty and the Beast again.

All in all it was quite a productive weekend on the stitching front. I managed to watch Sleeping Beauty, The Princess and the Frog (the newest addition to my Disney collection), and many hours of Hallmark Channel Christmas movies. Don't judge me. :-)

We had small amounts of snow that melted quicker than it fell. Until this morning that is. Just enough to make the roads slick of course. I'm glad I don't have to go more than 5 miles to work. Snow seems to wipe everyone's memory on how to drive.

I must admit I love how snow looks... when I don't have to go anywhere. My lantern looks especially lovely I think.

That appears to be all my news for the moment. I'm debating on joining a SAL for 2015... seems to be a fun idea and I do have the perfect project for it. I'll let you know!

Until later, please feel free to comment and follow. We're up to 12 followers and it feels amazing! I never get tired of seeing your lovely projects and getting to know you all better.


  1. Great progress Caitlin �� That sure is one big project!!
    I wish it would snow here during winter! Snow always looks so lovely!

  2. Great progress on Beauty Caitlin. I don't know if I told you, but when I saw your Snow White and Seven Dwarfs I went hunting on ebay and found a book with that design and a bunch more in it. Thanks.
    Sorry the frog came to visit. They should be sleeping. Love the snow pic.
