It snowed again!!

What a surprise when i let the cats out at 5.30am the ground was covered in fluffy snow and the flakes were still falling (they were like dinner plates!) it carried on till around 9am when the sun came out and it all started to melt away. We've had flurries on and off all day and i see the weathermen are predicting it again for tonight, typical as DD has to get the bus to college after her Easter break tomorrow!

Surprised even myself with this one. Stitched most of the evening last night and finished the putting together this morning. This is a free design (not available anymore) from Indigo Rose called Four Little Hearts. It was a lovely design to stitch and i'm really pleased with the way it turned out. The lady at the stitchy club can now show her son exactly what i do with the tins and that i am not a closet cigar tin sniffer LOL. I also made a start on the India Grace hardanger chart this morning, that was until DH decided he needed my valuable help to clear up all the mess he had made whilst still decorating the hallway ....

We had 3" of snow here in Shropshire, but I was in Tyneside and they only had 1/4" ... just my luck :(
