The husband raking the roof.
I did help the first round....hung out the bedroom window (where I took this shot from) to break up the ice from the peak on the garage. Very grateful the main house is a Gambrel roof, no raking needed.
The Christmas ice storm was not so kind.... Many folks were without power for over a week. We were fortunate to not have lost power. A few shots of the beauty created by Mother Nature.
The snow is up to the bottom of the top rail!!
I am so excited to share this next piece. It is my first finished piece with the sewing machine. I mentioned it in my previous post but did had forgotten to take pictures before I gifted it. My friend was very sweet to take a few pictures and a fine job she did.
I love the antlers...
She used antlers in her wedding decor....
This is the centerpiece she created.
Very creative girl!
Then I stitched up this little freebie from Sampler Girl for my Winterport Rug Hookers exchange.
It also filled with balsam.
Due to the ice storm our December meeting was canceled; we will have our exchange in January. I am currently stitching one up for myself...it sure is cute. :) Then I hope to plunge my needle into The Spanish Mystery Sample for a bit today and tomorrow as I sit cozy by the fire.
In closing I wanted to share a couple of non-stitchy pieces I had finished by my framers. I love how they turned out; especially the Moosehead Lake piece for my husband.
Polly and I have such a good time picking out framing; should have heard us squeal a little squeal of delight when we found the perfect combination.
No profound insight to what I hope for in the new year... Simple peace and happiness to all. Hope everyone has a delightful and warm weekend.
Take care and keep on stitching.
