We Got It .

Snow , that is . I was hoping that we'd escape it, but I woke at some point in the early hours and just knew it had snowed . The light is always different as the snow reflects the yellow from the street lights, and there it was. Needless to say I didn't get much of a lie-in this morning as the kids were too excited . Stomping down stairs, gasps and squeals of delight just made me chuckle.
Both kids and Daddy went outside to play while I organised washing etc. I just don't like the snow now I'm older , I find that I want to load up with groceries and hibernate indoors ,lol . So , apart from a few housey jobs , I've stitched and read a little and that's about it.

Here's what I've been doing for the last couple of weeks.

Three more Digimon squares , I just finished off the latest one . Only four more to do and I've done the 12 I promised , though I expect I'll end up doing more. I love the one in orange , he looks so much a tough street kid , lol.

Four little bunnies. The charts are really small for these , so I used some 11 count aida that I got in a bargain pack from Readicut and they turned out ok using 3 strands of thread .And, Jiminy Cricket , who will be joined by Pinnochio at some point , but I want to get the Digimons finished as they are for a quilt for one of the kids in Rachels' Place.

And , look what came in the post the other day. I saw this chart ages ago on a blog and fell in love with it so got in touch with Thread Bear on the off chance that they'd be able to get it for me . It's not one they normally stock , but my luck was in as I happened to contact them on the day they were sending an order in , so they added it for me . I love how they wrap things , it really is like getting a gift through the post .

Blowing dandelion clocks is something I've always liked to do , and something my kids like to do , so this is just lovely and I can't wait to start it . The bonus is it uses only DMC threads , so no faffing to get other threads , hopefully they will all be already in my stash.

Thanks for dropping by ,

You have been a stitching haven't you?

Last winter we took the nephew sled riding. It took 3 adults to one 3 yr old. One to send him down the hill (me), one to catch him at the bottom (DH), and one to help him up the hill (the boy). How did it happen that I can't do it all myself?

So, I am with you about the snow - let it fall and I'll enjoy it from the warmth of the house.
