I got my new memory card reader, yay! So as promised, here you go:

I took Sasha out in the snow. The coldness didnt bother her, but the depth of the snow did, so she stayed near the house.

Maya checked out Tofers new bookcases.

Experimentation with different styles and fabrics for bookcovers. I finally got the pattern and specifics worked out. I am out of practice mode, and they look really great (much better than these below). Check back soon for a tutorial!

    your kitties look too cute w/ their winter coats (not that they didn’t look cute before, but you know i’m partial to the long haired kitties). AND i’m jealous you have a cricut, AND i feel your pain, i had to replace 2 tires already this winter… and my tires aren’t even that old! 🙁 did i tell you about the screwdriver story? ugh, that’s for a long email.

Hoop-D-Do Challenge

Hoop-D-Do Challenge

My embroidery guild always has an annual challenge of some type and this year was our “Hoop-D-Do” project, whereby we were to create a work using specific stitches to be displayed in the hoop itself. My display of flowers in a “wood” bowl speaks the 70s to me. And, as usual, I didn’t stick to the rules well and added my own flare – ha!
