My Doves and Me.



It is cold up here in the north (Canada) got temperatures in the -21's and you have to stay warm while working or just being a bird and looking for sunshine which you can find on my porch, so all the doves decide it is a good place to rest and get a warm ray or two.



I get quite a few doves, sometimes there are thirty at one time resting in the sun. We come home and they take flight off the porch and you have to wait until they have all gone or you get in their way.

I some lovely birthday gifts from June and I asked Dovile to knit me a cowl and this is what she sent to me. Thank you June and Dovile I love all these goodies.






the new Stoney Creek Winter 2016 mag is here and it has lots of lovely charts.
 Here is some stitching that I have done.


And as promise this is me, We where working on Tuesday on the street with the NB Power guys and a photographer for the local newspaper came and took a whole lot of photo's of us at work. It was -21 chill factor that day so everyone was dressed for the weather. The photographer took lots of photo's and asked lots of questions. I found out today that I was on the front page of the newspaper. So here is a look at the front of the paper and a closer look at me. I am not a celebrate at work. ha ha. love it


So what do you think gals, do I look warm enough. I hope you all have a nice warm next few days. Bye for now. Hugs xx
