Bits and Pieces

We're getting a bit of winter, crisp and cold this morning.  The sun is deceiving-so bright and warm coming in through the living room window and still the temp is a balmy -10 outside.

I finished my shawl!  From this-




To this-
It took me almost a year, but it's done.  Next project?? :)

Do you do Pinterest?  I don't, but a friend does and she found these great hearts to make for Valentine's at http://www.bluevelvetchair.blogspot.com/2012/01/forest-glam-diy-valentines-day.html .  We have these red bushes all over around here, we call them red Dogwood.  Anyways, here's a picture of what I worked on last night for the Valentine's dinner at the church.


  I think I'll use these hearts for decoration all year. I like the way they turned out.

Enough show and tell. 

I hope your days are getting longer and the promise of spring has brought it's enthusiasm to your home.

Love your heart decorations! So rustic yet with a touch of elegance. (Rustic elegance? An oxymoron?) We call the dogwood Minnesota Red Bush up here.

You should be very proud of your beautiful shawl. That's what I call "makin' it from scratch!"

We slept in this morning - 6:30 - and I noticed when I got out of bed and before I turned on any lights I could almost see clearly outside. Almost!

Mama Pea-Rustic elegance is a nice term. Thank you.
The days are getting longer and I'm itchin' to get in the dirt. With so little snow, the itch is worse than normal for this time of year.
Thanks for stopping by.
