Well, it's Tuesday and it's really cold here in Minnesota. When I woke up this morning, the temperature was -16°Fahrenheit (-26.66°Celsius). I don't think the temperature ever went above freezing today! I left home early because I knew it would be a long commute into work and it was. Bumper to bumper traffic with no one going more than 15 or 20 miles per hour. I heard that there were over 200 accidents on the roads. Saw a couple of spinouts and a few cars off the road. This is dangerous weather and treacherous travel, even for a die-hard Minnesotan like myself!
I've been stitching away since my last post. As I'm sure you remember, I'm trying to finish up a couple of exchanges. My HoE Valentine's exchange is finished and ready to mail; I'm still working on my Winter Seasonal exchange - hopefully by the weekend this one will be complete. Tiny Treasures has been mailed but it had a bit of a ways to travel (to a warmer place I might add!)
So, all I have for you this evening is the HoE Lizzie Kate exchange that I mailed last weekend. The receiver was Pam; she seems to really like it! "Life's A Stitch" is one of my all-time favorite Lizzie Kate designs and it seemed most appropriate to send to another stitcher. I used the called for GAST fibers and I think this was stitched on a piece of Dirty Belfast from my stash. It's finished as a pinkeep. I think it turned out quite nice!
Has anyone out there visited the Shepherd's Bush shop? I am going to be in Salt Lake City in February and I'm trying to figure out how easy (or difficult) it might be to get to Ogden, UT to visit their shop. I would have the better part of a day to do this in; any suggestions or recommendations on how to get from downtown Salt Lake City to Ogden?
Until next time - stay warm!
