Today has been a totally disagreeable day. We have had snow, rain and now freezing rain. There are icicles forming on our balcony and ice on the windows. Brrr. Very glad it's been a stay-at-home day!
I didn't get time today to lay out the 'Grande Plan' project so no pictures to share as yet. So...in the meantime, how about a couple more ancestors?

There's a couple of things you might find interesting...
- Judy Cooper recently shared a post showing some of the beautifully stunning embroideries from the '1713 Treaty of Utrecht' exhibit. They are well worth seeing HERE.
- If you'd like to knit something really cute for Easter (or any other time of the year) there's a little pattern HERE.
