I'm a Little Snowman
short and fat.
Here is my scarf,
and here is my hat.
When the sun comes out,
I melt away.
But when it's cold,
I'm here to stay!
Here in Indiana, the snowmen are having a ball! Snow, freezing rain, wind...pretty much sums up half of the country right now doesn't it!
Perfect weather to stay indoors and finish up some projects.
Last week I was working on a pillow for the hubster:
It began from a small piece of stitchery found after about twenty years of forgotten-ness. A little creative repurposing
it joined some of the others I've made on the couch in the living room for a quick picture. Don't worry though, the hubs quickly claimed it! He likes to surf on his tablet at night before going to bed and wanted a pillow to help prop up his back.
This week, I also had my first cold of the season.
Another good reason to not venture out into the cold and snow.
Happy scraps and a couple of snippets of leftover lovelies repurposed into bookmarks for some of the special women in my life.
On the left, this was a flower my great-grandma stitched. It seemed only appropriate this bookmark go to my mom. My MIL loves blue and what better than a blue bird of happiness for her. The red (love) was gifted to my new daughter by marriage and the purple bookmark was given to our middle son's sweet girlfriend. Different women with different and unique strengths...but all share the common joy of reading!
And for me? I love reading too! Back to the vintage linens tote where I spied this little cutie. In spite of frayed edges and stains,
it's a cheerful way to mark my progress through a book.
Another way to add some cheer and inspiration to your day is to head on over to these blogs:
Leaving you with a picture which sort of summed up the week. I'm sewing down this row of the quilt, contrary to the directional arrow I marked for myself.
