Let there be snowflakes!

 Yes, there's snowflakes - of the kind I like (not the cold wet yucky ones that are outside!).  I'm adding cross stitched/embroidered snowflakes on the border of my latest landscape.  For some reason they needed to be there so who am I to argue?



I'm using waste canvas to do these and no two are alike, just like real snowflakes.

THIS is a pretty pattern for an easy-to-knit shawl.  

BEFORE YOU START INTO THIS NEXT SECTION OF LINKS I WOULD SUGGEST POURING YOURSELF A CUPPA.....

- And there are tons more HERE.  

- OR if you like to crochet check out what can be found HERE

- And if you're a quilter, have a look HERE.  

Today's quote..."I feel like my greatest accomplishment today has been not saying what I'm thinking out loud"

  2. I like the snowflakes- they look good on the border. Some very interesting links too. I like the little Yoda and crocheted socks- very tempting to make. Loove the quote which should be my motto.

    1. I thought the border just needed to have snowflakes so I went with it. I must admit in these times I am trying very hard to abide by that quote!!

  6. Wait, you posted this two days ago and it just NOW showed up in my feed! Well, bloggerrrrr. I like the snowflake ideas, and yes, no two alike is lovely.
    I'm trying to practice that not saying stuff aloud at the moment. So many foolish comments appearing on social media, and I have to save my energy for other stuff. I may be one of the people making foolish comments, too, if I don't look out.

    1. Interesting that it took so long - oh well, at least it showed up. I think the whole world could stop and spend some time contemplating that quote and who know it might mean saner heads would prevail.
