It arrived last night, the snow that is. It started late afternoon and by the time i went to bed we had a few inches. A young man had an accident outside our home and fell off his moped, he wasn't injured just a little shaken. He decided to walk the bike home for safety, best idea i think.
DH and i were nice and toasty warm in the sitting room with an open fire to keep us snuggly all evening. He with his Danish subtitle programme and me hooking away on a little project, you can see below.
Cold nights recently and DH has been taking the hottie bottle to bed with him to warm his feet. On Friday he asked if i could 'just whip up' a new cover for it... whip up a cover? 'hhmmm i guess so' i said. I decided that a crochet cover would be nice and let the warmness out without burning his tootsies.
I sewed it together this morning and here's what i managed to 'whip up' for him. It's not perfect by any means but it'll do the job, using oddments from the wool bag. He's pleased with it and thats all that matters.
Wednesday my lady managed to get herself dressed and is no longer just sitting in her bloomers.
I also managed to errect a little of the long fence too.
I do like the fabric this is stitched on and look forward each week to my evening on it.
My card a month for the SAL is also complete this week. Another Just Nan design from the Heartfelt chart.
Perfect for the month of February it's the Love one and i used some of the valentine sticky's to add onto the card. DS was eyeing this up as it was being stitched, i wonder if he'll ask if he can have it now it's completed.
Shores has also been on the frame this week. I borrowed a lap frame from one of the ladies at the stitch club to see how i got on with it. Stitching this on 32ct makes it quite large and the excess fabric thats around the edge does make it hard to hold on to in the normal clip frame. I seem to have made quite a bit of pregress for a couple of evenings and am able to stitch two handed with the lap frame.
My back garden looked like something from Narnia this morning when i sat in the conservatory with my cup of tea. Very pretty but i wont be venturing outside today.
DH and i were commenting about Mr Moe and his love of snow, he would have been hopping around outside this morning jumping and catching imaginary things in the snow, it was such fun to sit and watch him, it was his favourite time of the year, happy memories.
The sofa has my name on it for this afternoon, a film and a roaring fire and i'm sure i can find some stitching to keep me company as i while away the hours whilst the big snow keeps me inside.
Stay safe my UK friends, i hope it hasn't inconvenienced you all too much and spoilt your weekend plans.
