Weekly Update

As if we didn't have enough bad weather last week...this week we had bitter cold temperatures! Tuesday thru Thursday the regular temperature hovered near 0 and with the windchill it was well BELOW 0! No matter how many "layers" of clothes you put on you still turn into a popsicle every time you go outside! Over the weekend it FINALLY warmed up a bit...we got up to the high 30s! Who would have thought that the 30s would be considered warm? My buddy Jacob got to go outside and play with his mom and build a snowman.

Ain't they cute together! :)

PRIZE PACKAGEThis week I received a package in the mail from Kim. She had a contest over on her blog and I won! The answer was that she had just made her first french knot ever. In that respect she got me beat! I still can't make one and usually I use beads instead. Anyways...she sent me a pink piece of aida, 2 skeins of pink DMC and a chart for a biscornu. I have never stitched...let alone assembled a biscornu but I am going to give it a try and hope for the best! It is probably going to be SLOW going and I will need to find a good tutorial to help get me thru it. SO if you know of a good tutorial...PLEASE send me the link!

I *think* I may start this project next.

I did stitch up Egg Delivery by SamSarah this week. It was a pretty quick stitch. I put it on fabric similar to the color they called for but I didn't think you could see the bunny that well and Tia agreed ;) So I outlined him to help him pop out a little.
He is a CUTIE; so now to figure out what to do with him!

This week I only lost about a half a pound BUT another half pound gone is better than nothing! Up to a total of 5.2 gone for the year. :) Makes me HAPPY

This week I finished reading Lee Child's The Enemy and started One Shot. I also listened to The Sinner and Body Double by Tess Gerritsen. Gerritsen's books are getting better as we go on and I LOVE all of the books in the series by Child.

This week I only watched The Town staring Ben Affleck. I enjoyed it!
That about wraps it up for this week, have a blessed week and I will see you next time!

Yay for the warm up! It warmed up here, too. Congrats on the prize win. After my first biscornu, I swore I'd never do another one. I've done 3 more since! :) It's only a bit confusing the first time. Congrats on your stitchy finish, too.
