Sunny Sunday

We have had some snow in the last couple of days and since Saturday morning around 3 a.m. until this morning (Sunday) at 4 a.m. we have had no power. We kept warm with lots of blankets and cooked hamburgers and made tea on the bbq.

I made a stew during the week and will have it with homemade bread for supper.

I saw the doves sitting on the porch yesterday trying to stay warm.

I am knitting a seersucker pattern for a face cloth. It has 8 different rows to follow.  It's doing up great.
 I am stitching up Garden Pleasures and below is how far I am.

 I think everyone is doing these little mittens.

I thought I would also stitch this chart only in orange not black.

I found this chart on Pinterest and just stitched one half of it. Going to make a pin pillow.

Well, I hope everyone has a lovely Sunday. My arm is healed nicely. It is not as strong as the right but I have all the time in the world to get it in shape. I am retired so I do not have to worry about work,  I am looking forward to planting more flowers in my front garden and even planting some vegetables this year. I am able to knit, crochet, stitching and have even been teaching myself to needle tat. I have learned the basic stitches and will really give it a try once I get the proper tatting needles to use. Just been experimenting with a normal needle. It looks like lots of fun. I don't have a shuttle but I think needle tatting looks for me the easier of the two types.

Thank you for dropping by to see what I have been doing in my little part of the world. Big hugs to all. Bye for now. xxxx
