Thank you for joining me on this cold and frosty morning.
It's a beautifully sunny, crisp winter's day here.
A day for a brisk walk in the sunshine followed by a cosy crafty afternoon I think!
We will see what the day brings.
Firstly I need to clear my table and sort a few more cupboards.

Last week I was inspired by the lovely stitchy work by Diane - Velvet Moth
Annie and I managed an afternoon of dumfing while the men went to footie.
I tried a few little dumfy embroideries using natural colours.
So here they are alongside my drink mat tile that Ben made me for Christmas.

Not a very good photo and I think I need to practise a bit more before I every reach Diane's standard but a lot of fun was had nevertheless.

Well that's it for today.
I hope I manage to visit a few WOYWW desks a bit earlier this week - it took me till Sunday to get round last week!

Have a great week and enjoy the sunshine.
x Jo

Wish it was cold for me, well cooler than what we have now, its hard to get outside and the sun is beating down hot and makes one feel lethargic

It's very cold sunshine here. And we have draughts. I haven't found them all yet. But there is a definite chill around my ankles. ;)

Ah, lovely tile, our grandsons bought me some coasters with space for tiny drawings in the back that show at the front.
Pleased to hear you have some sunshine, it's just started raining here.

Got to keep either moving around or wrap up in front of the TV in this weather. I don't do cols. What are your plans now for the little embroideries - they have possibilities. x Jackie 32
