It is a HE kind of stitching

Designed by Sandra Sullivan
Homespun Elegance, Ltd.


I chose different fibers.    I used GAST Dried Thyme, Week's Baked Apple; Needle Necessities 1342; Week's Onyx; and Simply Shaker Sampler Threads Cidermill Brown.    There is another motif in the pattern folder that I'd like to stitch ... and change the colors ; )    The HE patterns are wonderful to stitch while gathering with good friends.    


 And new bead stash ... to string or tat ... meanwhile, 
they decorate the desk!

Find the kitty

I had run the sweeper and couldn't find our female cat, Honey Bunny.    Opened the bathroom door & there she was:
She is still sleeping there.   Warmest place in the house.


Wednesday, aside from the snow storm, I had won a pass to The Monuments Men.
I picked up our daughter, Tori, and we enjoyed the movie
   

The drive back on Thursday was more enjoyable.   Very cold, very sunny, and blue sky.    
Indiana is a boring state to drive thru.   I had the road to myself most of the time.
The highlight of the drive was when a hawk flew over the vehicle! {no photo}

Shadows ....


Link to Pattern


 
Will the groundhog see a shadow, six more weeks of winter?    Will the sky be overcast, and the groundhog not see a shadow, early spring?

Recent Picks:



and, there is an audio book, too.

Don't pass on this novel - exceptional.





I admit, never read any of her novels.   I did see the novel made into a movie which was okay.   This book is beautiful and elegant.    Don't read review - read the book!!!!




Short stories, written by THE MASTER!!!





What fun.   I enjoyed it!    So odd, a puzzle, and a smashing ending.    Unique and interesting.





With hesitation, this is also a pick.   The ending.   Yep, it was the ending.   Read thru the whole thing and then, the ending.
