That's right ... sunny Queensland and snow don't usually belong in the same sentence but ... this wind is definitely coming straight off the snow that has fell in spots of southern Queensland. What else is one to do but stay indoors by the fire and snow sew ... especially as it was time for

While dinner was in the oven I cut, pressed and pinned the small peeper border for NJ.  Once the border was complete it was onto preparing for another project

Looking forward to some embroidery after all that needleturn. 'My Stitching Things' by Michelle Ridgway was in the last Country Threads Mag I borrowed from the town library ... now to choose some colours and sit by the fire.

Here's a sweet pic of GS keeping warm while out for a stroll last weekend.

Stitch and be happy     >^..^<
