Friday:We are supposed to get some ‘wintery mix’ this evening through the day tomorrow.I’m looking forward to it – just watching the snowflakes fall.They say this is our best chance so far this year…we’ll see. I know SO many of you are buried deep in multi-feet of snow and are sick and tired of it, but forgive your South Carolina friend the excitement of having a few flakes, please.
Saturday:Well – they were right! Not so much with the timing, but it did… something!I just took Pixie out -- she was not impressed!There are two plus inches of … some icy mixture.I think it’s mostly sleet with a little snow mixed in… some minute flakes and pellets (?) are still falling, and if their prediction is correct, will for most of the day.It’s not the beautiful huge flakes one loves to see falling, but it’s ‘snow’.That prediction also says the temperature will be below freezing through most of the weekend, so what’s here is likely to stay for a while.Yes, I stopped by the grocery a couple of times during the week: well stocked and ready!Enjoying hot, flavored coffee while browsing this morning…
One of my long-time, online friends was doing some organizing – imagine that - and decided to share some magazines she thought I might like.There wasn’t a duplicate of what I have in the group she sent, AND she also sent a couple of snowman charts that I don’t have.How special is that RAOK? Thank you so much, Lesa.I really appreciate your generosity and thoughtfulness – and Maddie’s approval!!
This week’s stitching has been good.I finished “B” is for Buttons, with the exception of beads, with Brooke’s Books Alphabet SAL.
Finished Fa-La-La with the Little House Needleworks Monthly Ornament Stitch-A-Long Blog, Too group.I had ‘finished’ stitching, then noticed the red bottom border on other members’ pieces… How did I miss that on the chart? It was quite a fun piece to stitch!It, as the others will be, is stitched on 28 ct Tea Monaco 1x1 using the recommended fibers. I did add beads for the snowflakes and the candle's flame.
On Friday night with Let’s Stitch, I finished the Sweetheart Kiss from Give Us a Kiss –Cricket Collection on 28 ct cream linen using recommended DMCs as another ornie for Friendly Stitchers’ Ornament-a- Month SAL. Honestly, it's not as cute as I thought it would be - maybe when it is really finished...
I also started Lovely You, a freebie from Paulette at Plum Street Samplers on the same 28 ct cream linen using DMC 115.With the encouragement of Edgar, I watched Great Expectations and Elmer Gentry last night while stitching!It was a tribute to the recently deceased actress, Jean Simmons.
What?Knitting?Yes, I’m a very unskilled knitter!I saw this on Snippets and Stash, and just thought it was SO cute – I even forwarded it to a friend who really knits.When I was at Hobby Lobby – one of my favorite haunts – they had sock yarn on sale, so I went for it.Now mine doesn’t look much like the one above, but it was a little something different while watching football last weekend. Didn’t get too much done, you say?Well… how many times did I pull it out before I got this far?Let’s see – maybe five? Found When I find the link again to an eerily similar story to mine – but very humorous, I'll update.It made me laugh out loud and admire the fact that Annemarie ‘learns’ so much quicker than I do!
Well friends, that’s it for this week.I hope you are having a great weekend, doing the things that you enjoy most!I hope to be around your blogs to see you, soon!
