Hello My Dear Friends

Thank-you all for your comments on my last post, you all are so wonderful to continue to follow and comment.
I have done some stitching in the past week, I started this on Sunday the first and have not gotten much done, appointments, arranging for my Father-in-law to get ready and move into assisted living,
snow shoveling I do the deck and front porch, Mike is able to work the snowblower so far, taking down Christmas decorations outdoors, reading and more reading (trying to get caught up) finished one book, started another Debbie Macomber  Blossom Street Brides, love her writing style, and of course stitching and beading.
I was contacted by a Lady Susan Morris she asked about a beading project, if you see this post please let me know if you have a Blog Spot, or if someone knows her from Google.

Here is what we woke up to this morning lots of snow we had in the end 6 inch's argh.

WE needed new garage doors, I love the color, Mike did a wonderful job choosing these, I was so sad for the man that put these in last week it was only 5 degrees above zero, he would not come into the house to warm up he sat in his truck, I felt so bad, he did a wonderful job for us.
Our old doors were pooping out.

I took down the last of the ornaments on Saturday, Krissy wanted to help, she snatched this off the coffee table, she does not chew anything but likes to have her own stash of goodies to lay on.

This is what I have been stitching on, this is Brenda Gervais Paper Snowflakes, I did get a little stitching in this week but not as much as I wanted.

                                                so sorry about the blurry photo.

I love this design, I bought he required fabric but it seems to be so light compared to the package photo, I guess different dye lots make a difference, I hope to have this finished by January 26 I want to have it framed for a birthday present.

Well its almost time for one of my favorite programs The Killing Fields, it is a real time series, very interesting to me.

I forgot that was on - need to catch up. We don't have your amount, but any amount of snow is a pain in the rear to me. A little at a time, every day, not enough to blow, so it's constant shoveling.

Krissy has good taste in decorations. :)
Nice progress on Paper Snowflakes.

Those are handsome garage doors. Krissy is funny. ;) What a birthday gift you are creating! A lot of our snow melting with the cold rain that dumped down on us.

Oh, that is a lot of snow, Catherine! We have NONE here in western PA--it is so very strange this winter... But, it sure makes it easier to get around :)

Krissy is so cute--and has great taste. That is wonderful that she doesn't chew on your ornaments, just wants them by her side!!

Hope 2017 will be an excellent year for you and your family!

Yikes about the snow, and nice new doors. Your dog is gorgeous!

Von said...

Love your new garage doors, Catherine! We need to replace ours too as they are still the original from 1964! Just another thing to add to the list of needed updates, lol!

Hope the snow isn't causing many problems for you. Schools here have been closed all week, but today is better so maybe they'll go back tomorrow. We have about a foot at least on the ground maybe more.

Stay warm and keep stitching. :)

Snow - ugh! So far we haven't had much, and I wouldn't mind if it didn't snow again. : ) I'm trying to talk my husband into getting a snowblower but no luck so far. Krissy looks like a sweetie! And you've made a nice start on Paper Snowflakes! Stay warm. : )
