Spots of Winter


I can now share a picture of this little tuck pillow I stitched for my DD. My dd and I have given each other advent gifts, and this was one of hers. I stitched it a while back when she was out of the way. It's a kit by Pine Mountain Designs, and is called Spots of Winter, I just thought it was so cute, and she really likes it too.




And here is a picture of more spots of winter, which I took last week. This was the scene when I left my local cross stitch club meeting last Tuesday evening. Thankfully the snow has gone now. Although at the weekend we went to the Christmas Craft Fair at Sledmere House, and they still had lots of snow, in fact where they made us park the car, the car was wheel deep in snow, and we had to get help to be pushed off, along with other cars that were stuck.

And talking of cars, yesterday I was going to visit Sally, and when I went to get my car out of the garage it wouldn't start. (I've not used it since Saturday). So now I feel like I am a prisoner, and I'm not happy, dh says he'll look at the weekend, thankfully his weekend will start tomorrow, as he has the day off work. At the moment I am only working two days a week, as I was due lots of time off - I could get used to two days.

Love the Pine Mountain pillow Chris. It's so sweet.

Nice photo of the snow too. Looks like we might get more this weekend.

It was a real bummer yesterday wasn't it? I was really looking forward to our afternoon but not to worry. These things happen. Hope your DH gets it sorted for you.

Love your cushion. I have had similar problems with my car, think it needs a new battery... it certainly doesn't like the cold mornings...

What a pretty design - love those colors - and the snow scene looks like something out of a film! Good luck with the car!

Spots of Winter looks fab. Loving the snowy pic too.
Hope the car doesn't cost you too many £££.
