For all you stitchers...

Go check this out.

She is giving away a free stitchery pattern. Very old fashioned I know, but I'm an old fashioned kind of gal. Don't you just love the little yo-yo's embellishing the bottom of this tea towel.

I have been busy packing, cleaning, and purging. Big job ahead of us this spring. More on that later...

Not much quilting going on in my neck of the woods. When I do sit I have been knitting. Finished 2 pair of mitts, and 2 scarves and now I am on the last sock of a pair that has been in my knitting bag far too long!
I was all geared up to go to the movies with Mr. O. We thought "The King's Speech" was still playing, but alas it is not to be. The choices we had were something about Mom's on Mar's
( I mean people..seriously!) or a disaster movie in California.   ( There is enough disaster on the news these days with the Australia floods, New Zealand earthquakes, and now Japan earthquakes and tsunami). How heartbreaking...I do not have television, but I did watch some clips on-line and it was so unbelievable. Those poor people...how frightening!

We really have no call to complain about snow... how insignificant compared to this!
