Clear blue sky, a spot of winter sunshine, looks lovely from inside in the warm but venture outside and you really do get a chilly surprise. Temps here have been well below zero for the past week or so and ice is a problem. These lovely frosted trees are at the bottom of my neighbours garden and looked so lovely. A woodpecker lives in one of them, i hear him often and he can be seen on my bird feeders some mornings.
Tina (no blog, but really should have one!) from Stitch & Stash has a birthday today. She is a kitty lover so i decided to make her a beaded edge scissor fob using a Margaret Sherry design from an old magazine. I did add a couple more little things to the parcel (just to help your practice in making ornaments Tina LOL) but forgot to take a pic of those.
Last week, half a motif on GM was stitched - not worth a pic, and the ornament for my personal exchange with Christine so no other stitching pics to share this time. I've also decided on the design for the Round Robin at Stitch & Stash that starts in the New Year, but i'll save details of that for another post when i have the fabric all charted up ready to go.
Have you got your Christmas tree up yet? Hopefully mine will be going up this weekend if DH gets it out of the attic for me. I do have my advent Santa up and each day he gives me a lovely Quality Street choccie... yummy! I've also been practising getting a little festive by sampling the lovely seasonal M & M's that are on sale, why is it they taste so much better than the usual ones and i can polish off a whole packet in one sitting if i am not careful LOL
