Thank you so much to everyone for the hugs and get well wishes. I am still suffering from a yucky cold and we can't get the part to fix our heater until some time next week. I have been snuggling up in my fleecy snowman blanket and stitching to keep warm. This is a small pinkeep that I completed a few days ago and here is my latest wip.

I need to go grocery shopping tomorrow and to find a card and present for my hubbys birthday on Tuesday. I just wish I had a clue what I am going to buy him, men are so difficult to buy for.
Maybe I should just treat him to lunch tomorrow. Hope everyone has a nice week-end. Hugs!

This year I am also taking part in a monthly stitch-a-long with my stitching sister Elaine (shutterbuglady) from Wisconsin. After a lucky dip draw we both have a list of months which we have to choose the chart that we are both going to stitch. We must stitch the chart using different colours threads or fabric so that it varies from the original design. I got to choose January so our first design is Let It Snow by Holly House Designs. The original chart is stitched with Krenik braid and filament, I am using Weeks Dye Works Sea Foam and Tropical Island by Stranded by the Sea. I'm afraid my picture isn't very clear because the fabric and the threads are so pale so it didn't photograph very well. This is my wip.Everyone has gone back to work and school today but we still have lots of snow on the ground so the roads and pavements are pretty scary. Tomorrow will be the first day that I need to attempt walking to school and I am not looking forward to it. The pavements are piled high with ice and snow as there is a shortage of salt, so no pavements have been gritted at all. I need to get me a sleigh..lol. Hugs!
