Finally Finished 6 Fat Men

Today I put the final stitches in 6 Fat Men by Lizzie Kate.  I'm so happy to have this finished.  I was stitching it in a SAL but finally had to stitch more to get it finished.  I was loosing interest in it and didn't want to put it away.  I've already put Lizzie Kate's Summer Mystery away after stitching a quarter, maybe a third of the first part.  Now to get it framed.  I'll be taking it to a small framing shop in Mount Vernon (WA) tomorrow and seeing what they will charge.  I'm hoping that I can still get in on the summer sale.  I heard the sign was still hanging outside.  I was so surprised that I used almost 5 skeins of Whitewash over dyed floss for the snow.  I never stitch anything twice but  I was to stitch this again I would use DMC white.  The snow with the over dyed floss is a little dirty.  I hate dirty snow.  When we get snow I don't want anyone to walk in it or disturb it.  I love pure white snow.  After Christmas I put out my snowmen for a month.  I'm looking for fabric to make a mantel scarf that's snowflakes.  I have the pattern (I think) but can't find any fabric that I like that is plastered with glitter!  I'm jut not into that sparkly stuff!
I have my next project ready to start tonight.  I'm wondering if I shouldn't do a small project but this one is about 8 x 11 so its not to bad.  Its called Autumn Cardinals by Diane Arthurs (Imaginating).  There are 4 in this series of seasons.  I probably start the Christmas chart but I have lots and lots of cross stitched Christmas pictures and ornaments that I think I'll stick with the fall chart!  Fall is my favorite season after all!
