He does the hood surrender, they win!
Baxter looking at me, thinking... Get her off of me! lol
I've so many UFO's going on right now & my fingers are splitting open. The tips look like they have been cut open, do to dry skin. I get relief if I apply Polyisporn & bandages, then slip my hand into a surgical glove, to help keep those bandaids on! Who knew the tips of the fingers were sooooo sensitive?!
I did manage to get some handwork done.
The drapes came from a clearance sale at Fabricland in London Ontario.
And the Euro shams I made! The kingsize shams are being cut out & worked soon.
After washing it I realized, it would make great shams for the crewel embroidered coverlet, the background fabric looked the same!
So for $28.00 at the Canadian Tire... it was a steal! The cost of canvas fabric in a fabric store would be so much more! The next time you need canvas, think of buying a drop cloth. This is the largest & most expensive & their is a cheaper, smaller size one, but this is a great fabric to have in your fabric stash, very durable & washable!
I've started covering a cotton clothesline cord with 1" fabric. I follow Susie's Scraps blog, from Australia & she makes baskets from the covered lines. Much like a braided rug, it's sewn together, into a basket shape. I'm making it for old Tom cat, he loves sleeping in my scrap bag. I'm re-purposing those scaps into a basket, just for him! I'll need to cover 2 or 3 clothesline lenghts to achieve the size needed.
March has come 'In Like A Lion!' & I'm grateful that Bill was here to plow me out again!
The trio of trees, that make me think of my three, Mitchell, Nicole, & Nicholas. Bill & I sent them to purchase these trees back a few years ago. Mitchell jumped in the tractor & dug out the spacing. I'm surprised that they take this horrid wind & cold & stay standing!
Well March has arrived with a very cold blast & spring arrives later this month. Hopefully the warmer sunny days will help to melt the snow piles away, to make room for the ground to come to life. I can't wait to see the bulbs that were planted! I've been seeing everyone else, from Ontario! lol
Remember I'm preserving myself in the cold, just so I can last longer! LOL
Stay warm & safe!
