Just When You Thought it Couldn't Get Colder...

Yes my friends - the temperature today dropped to 17 degrees BELOW zero! I heard on the radio that we have gone 63 hours with subzero temperatures. It's cold. Although the heatwave has started - the temperature climbed to a balmy zero at 4pm today!

I learned today that Leena received the SBEBB House Exchange that I sent off to her last week. As I told her, I really had a hard time parting with this one. I love LHN designs and this one is no exception. Plus, it was my first ever flat fold! I don't know why I've not tried this finishing technique before! I'm glad that Leena is happy with it.

Very nice! It's too cute. I am at my parents house and it's very cold here too, brrrr. What's worse it's in the 50's at home. I am a bit jealous.

I can't even imagine that kind of cold. Here in NW Florida it was 23 degrees one morining last week. That would probably seem hot in comparison to those temps.

Great job with your flat fold. It's lovely. And I also wanted to say that I love the hardanger pieces for Cari-they are beautiful.

Lovely exchange piece - you did a great job!

Cathy, Thank you so much once again for this exchange! I really love it and I can understand you had hard time parting with it! But it's in a good, new home :) Unfortunately not at all warmer here for your beautiful flat fold, -23F (-31C) this morning!

Such a cute piece! Love it! Congrats on the finish. I may have to put on mittens, thinking about how cold you must be!

Wow, that's cold! It's giving me goosebumps just thinking about it! Your Woodland Sampler is gorgeous as a flat-fold - and your first attempt looks perfect! :D

Von said...

Oh my goodness, Cathy! It's been a very long time since we've seen temps that low!! Hope your furnace keeps up, and keep the kettle on the stove. :D
