Winter Sampler Progress

I have spent the last three weeks working on Winter Sampler.  This is what it looks like now:

It has felt good to spend so much time on this piece.  I feel like I have accomplished quite a bit.  A large portion of the skating scene has appeared.  Also, the picture of the snowman is almost finished.  Finally, the clock with the “Happy New-Year” ribbon is complete.  I am starting to work on the “Winter” arch that covers the skating scene, which makes me feel like I am starting a new section of the design.

As an added bonus, I have hit the upper corner.  That means that the diagonals are starting to shrink.  This is a welcome development because I feel like I have made it over the hump and things are starting to go downhill.  I look forward to working on this piece more.

I have decided to take a little break from it, though.  There is a lot of white in this piece and white is not my favorite color to stitch.  I need to recharge with something else for a time.
