A LITTLE PEEK

 
I'VE STARTED A PUNCH NEEDLE PIECE THAT
I WILL OFFER AS AN E~PATTERN SOON.
I'M EXCITED ABOUT IT. IT WILL HAVE THINGS
THAT START WITH THE LETTER B.
OK, THAT'S ALL I'M SAYING FOR NOW!
BUT YOU CAN SEE THE START OF IT ABOVE.
 
IT WAS -34 AT OUR HOUSE THIS MORNING.
I AM OH SO GRATEFUL FOR A NICE WARM HOUSE.
KEEP SNUGLY WARM WHEREVER YOU ARE.
IT'S A GOOD DAY TO COVER UP WITH A WARM
QUILT AND PUNCH AWAY. :-)
 
UNTIL NEXT TIME....LORI

HOW DEEP IS OUR SNOW?

 
I THINK I SEE YOU!

 
UH HUH, GETTING WARMER!
 
 
 
PEEK A BOO!
 
NORMALLY WE DON'T LET ZOE OFF LEASH
BUT THE SNOW IS SO HIGH AND BRIAN BLOCKED
THE WAY TO THE ROAD SO SHE COULD PLAY A
LITTLE BIT. IT'S COLD THO SO WE DIDN'T
STAY OUT TOO LONG. BRIAN BLOWS THESE
TRAILS IN OUR BACK YARD FOR HER.
 
THANK YOU FOR THE KIND COMMENTS
ABOUT MY SAMPLER.
AND WELCOME TO MY NEW FOLLOWERS.
 
UNTIL NEXT TIME....LORI

FRAMED REDWORK

 
I FINALLY GOT MY REDWORK SAMPLER FRAMED!
IT'S A GOOD SIZE SAMPLER SO YOU CAN SEE WHY
IT TOOK ME SOME TIME. I ALREADY HAD A FRAME
THAT WAS JUST THE RIGHT SIZE SO IT WORKED
OUT BEAUTIFULLY. I'M VERY HAPPY WITH THE LOOK.

 
I USED DMC 355 FOR THE RED FLOSS AND
CREEK BED BROWN LINEN BUT I'M NOT SURE WHO
IT IS BY AS IT DIDN'T SAY ON THE TAG.
I LOVE THE COLOR OF THE LINEN. A NICE SOFT BROWN.
 
I USED AN ANTIQUE SAMPLER FOR THE INSPIRATION
BUT IT'S NOT AN EXACT COPY.
 
HAVE A WONDERFUL WEEKEND.
UNTIL NEXT TIME.....LORI
