I hate winter
I could write a million reasons why I hate winter but this is one. Does this look like a sad face? In the summer our doors are never closed and our dogs roam freely inside and out, but in winter the doors are closed to keep the heat in. This is Molly on the wrong side of the door.
I have been busy making my PIF gifts so I cannot show them. I thought I would show a pin cushion I made recently. It is rather large however I know I will never loose it. You may have noticed I am a fan of Bronwyn Hayes's women(this is another one). I fill my pin cushions with sheep's fleece which helps grease the pins. We live quite close to a warehouse that handles sheep fleece. I head off there with an empty shopping bag when I need to fill a pin cushion. The men there are always obliging, as I don't expect top of the range fleece they generally give me the amount I need.
I have also included a photo of a table runner I am working on. Both ends will look like a basket full of flowers, it is a long way from being finished.
