I hope everyone is well! Brayden came down with an ear infection Sunday so we have been laying petty low here. But I have been managing to get some stitching in! Yay!
ABC's of Parenting had the yellow around the letter "q" stitching and the letters "lec" and part of the "t" stitched last time I had it out.
Cars had a whole column finished and you can see Sally's mouth if you know where to look. Not real happy with the colors on her but I wasn't with Lighting McQueen either until I had more of him stitched so I am sure she will look fine in the end.
I also started the border for February on the Joyful World SAL, which is a freebie! I watched the movie The Reader while stitching for the Stitchers film club on Instagram. If you would like to join in with us use the hashtag #stitchersfilmclub or head over to http://heatherstitches.com/ , she is hosting the club and doing a mighty fine job! The movie was really good but dealt with some heavy stuff, definitely not a puppies and rainbow kinda movie.
We lost one of our chickens the other night. Still aren't really sure what happened but the rest seem to be ok so far. It will be so nice when it is warm again and they can spend their days outside and we won't have to worry about the eggs freezing. It is -16 with a -26 wind chill here today so going out to look after chickens wasn't high on my list of things I wanted to do but I did it. I think I will have some eggs for lunch to remind me of the benefit of having our own chickens and to get me in the mood to head back out in the freezing cold to water them again.
