I know it's not near as cold here in Texas as it is where some of you live, but when only half your heat works, it gets pretty frigid!
My stitching/computer room is now below 60 degrees. I really wanted to get on the computer to check email and make a blog post, so here I am with the fingerless gloves/wrist warmers I knitted. They really help!
Anyway, the heat should be up and running soon. In the meantime, I'm stitching a lot and enjoying the mail.
I ordered some cool things on Etsy.com that I just have to share. First is some matching hand dyed fabric, perle cotton, and embroidery floss from The Rainbow Girl in Hertfordshire, England. Shipping was really fast and I just love the colors.
Next is an amazing tote from Plastique Recreations in Lake City, Florida. Teresa's items are crocheted from "plarn" which is made from plastic shopping bags. I love how beautiful it is and it looks like it will last forever. I can't wait to start using it. The little yellow and black bag was a free thank you gift and is made from Dollar General bags and video cassette tape.
These are just so adorable!
I've been hybernating in front of the television and making headway on my Long Dog Mystery Sampler. I'm still amazed at how well my new camera does at close range, so here are a couple of close ups of the section I'm working on.
