Heavy Heart

I have spent quite a few hours stitching on my snowman and I love the colors in him. I hope that all who read my blog are safe and well tonight.

Last night was a horrific night. At 9PM my neighbors house burnt down. Thankfully the family got out of the house. As you can see in the picture the house beside it also suffered damage.I live across the street from this house. The house was new only 3 years old and the young family were so happy, it was their first home. The parents smoked outside and when the weather was bad they smoked in their garage putting their ashes and butts in a can which tragically is what caused the fire.

He's Growing

Feb 8/2010 is a day I am looking forward to. I will finally be having an ultrasound for my shoulder and then I will know what the extend of my injury is and what will be done to fix it.My physio therapist tells me to expect surgery and extensive physio therapy after that.I'll figure out someway to stitch, and I have a couple of books that I want to read. I was reading some of the blogs I follow and they are from places south of me and it is so refreshing to see signs of spring being posted. And that means Easter is coming which is my favorite holiday. I love spring, seeing everything come back to life again.

Snowman Stocking

Here is my snowman stocking. I can't believe after all my years of stitching that this is my first stocking, and reflecting back on my previous pieces this is also the first time I have done any snowmen. A catalogue arrived in the mail yesterday from Herrshners and on the cover is a lap blanket with snowmen. This got me to thinking that I will make stockings and a lap blanket for each of my grandkids. So now the search is on for the themes for each child.
