.....doth BLOW !!!!!

Brace yourselves today......they're saying coldest in 10 years!! Wind chills that is .

I sure hope there aren't any robins left around here but I hope the other birds find shelter here in the woods. Bring the dogs inside if they are out!
.......
I did just that this past weekend. Though it wasn't that cold.
I sure enjoyed the laughter around the fireplace! I encourage everyone who is coming during the winter, to bring a hand project to take a break from the sewing machine and gather 'round the hearth.

I sure appreciate the Pot Luck weekends now and again so I can

be a guest in my own retreat. Besides lengthening the patio door drapes, I sort of finished this embroidered piece. I bought the kit because I so loved it, then I take it home and change it. I moved two panels together and downsized the flying geese to surround the scene. It greatly changed the pattern but I never seem to follow one anyway. I like how it turned out. It may hang under the wine glasses someday.

Diane had fun teaching us to make snowflakes ....These are not your ordinary snowflakes!!!
Mine is the bottom one.
Take a closer look..................

Other projects folks shared with us over the weekend.....


So stay warm, grab your favorite beverage, get cozy and put your feet up!
