Baby, It's Cold Outside

It's a good thing that I have a lot to do inside today, because going outside will not be fun. It's 8:30am Sunday morning here in MN and the temperature is minus 11 degrees Fahrenheit. For my international friends I did a quick conversion, that's minus 23.89 Celsius. Brrrr!

I have a project photo to share - Cari received the From My Heart exchange package that I sent to her.

Some of you have seen this Hardanger suncatcher/ornament design before - it's one of my favorite designs to stitch! I made Cari a heart shaped scissors fob too. Hope she likes it.

Have lots of housework and laundry to do today (it's okay though - remember, I like to do laundry!) Hoping to get some stitching in tonight during the Super Bowl game.

Have a great day!

Gorgeous work, Cathy! :D What threads did you use for those? You seem to have some really nice overdyed pearl cottons in your stash.

Thanks so much for this wonderful exchange and goodies...I feel quite spoiled!
