Brrrrrr...and more

WOW it's cold outside!!

The whole country is being blasted by bitter cold.
Even Florida! 
 Let's move on to something more pleasant...like knitting! 
 I knitted this darling hat for Wendy...
I also knitted a hat for Sue but I still need to add a button. I'll post a pic after I do that. And I've started on a wrap for myself. It's called Mrs. Patmor's Wrap, named after the head cook in the series Downton Abbey on Masterpiece Theater. Wendy, Dory and I recently started watching the series from a 3 season disc set I bought. Season 4 just started and it's being recorded so we can watch when we're done with the first 3. IT IS SOOO GOOD!! I will post pics of the wrap when I'm done. For now here is a glimpse of the luscious yarn I'm using (which I purchased while on our trip to Michigan)...

Now I'm switching over to SCRAPBOOKING (and card making). Here is a card I made for a friend recovering from surgery (I've made this card with different colors so many times because I just LOVE it).

 And I've finally started on my Project Life for both 2013 (only got to February last year) and 2014. Here's my title page for 2013...

Jennifer and Stephen.

Jessie and Eric

And the title page for 2014 (I'll add pictures throughout the year)

I want to show you a really cute pair of earrings my DDIL Jessie gave me.

Aren't they adorable??
She told me when she saw them they reminded her of the cross stitch I did hanging in the living room.....

Solitary Skater I crossed stitched in 1987.
Sorry for all the glare. Those damn windows that let in all that gorgeous sunshine!

So, I think that's it for now. As always....
