WOYWW # 190
I hope all my WOYWW friends have managed to stay safe and warm this week, with all this White stuff around.
I actually love the snow, but what I don’t like is the icy and lays under the soft snow on the pavements making it treacherous to walk. BoJangles wasn’t too impressed either and I had to laugh as I watched him make is way around the edge of the patio and under the bench where the snow hadn’t settled until he could go no further. He then gingerly put his front paws in it, decided it was too cold and made B-Line straight back in, where he stayed in front of the radiator for the rest of the day………what a life!
Still, the snow is a very good reason to stay inside in the warm, grab a steaming cup of coffee and visit a few of my crafty friends who hang out at The Stamping Ground on Wednesdays to show what’s on their desks.
Mine this week has the remnants of my very first card making session of the year.
As you can see, I’ve been making some little gift cards for the LillyBo Quilt Project that Jo has started.
I know exactly where Jo was coming from when she decided she wanted to do this project because I felt the same when I lost my dad back in 2010 and we made Quilts For The Hospice that cared for him, so when Jo asked for help I was only too happy to hold up my hand. But as you’ve heard me say many times before on here, I’m absolutely useless with a sewing machine, so I’ve offered to made gift cards to go with each of the quilts instead.
Have to say, these are a great way of using up all my scraps!
No photo of my knitting this week, but it’s coming along nicely and I’m a little ahead of where I expected to be.
The first two quarters of the shawl took a week each do but as I’m beginning to remember the pattern I must be knitting faster because I finished the other two quarters last week and have now made a start on the edging which is 20 stitches at its widest part and has to go right around the outside, so it might take some time to finish.
Stay warm and……………..
