Wintry Mix

Here in North Carolina we had a wintry mix last week that lingered around for one day. 

Now our forecast for North Carolina is calling for a wintry blast today at 12:00 noon 2-4 inches.  Be nice if Mother Nature has a change of heart.

Cattleya's baby tassel hat

Hi, Tywanna here.  I finished my granddaughter's, Cattleya, hat.  I know she is going to look cute it in.

On a cold chilly morning there is nothing like hot homemade biscuits, fat back, grandma molasses with butter, and a cup of coffee.  I even boiled me some eggs to go with my breakfast.  I love making biscuits and am always trying to find a great biscuit recipe.  These biscuits were made of two ingredients (self rising flour and whipping cream).  Delicious......

My Jonquil, finished and have been placed in the mail to be made into a lovely quilt along with other cross stitched flowers for a sick and shut-in person. 

Jonquil is the flower for March.  Maybe one day, I will do all twelve flowers.

Next project I am working on is Doc Hudson from the Cars movie.

Here in Zebulon, North Carolina we got some snow furries.  It was awesome coming down, but I am glad that it did not stick and is not sticking around (yahoo).  I worked on my Jonquil and have one small section to finish.  Loving this piece!

I stitched up the Star of David and gave it as a Christmas gift to a family member along with the butterfly dishcloth.  Hope she has many years of washing dishes with them both.  The other dishcloth, log cabin, was an experiment and looks more like a gun.  I have so many small skeins of leftover yarns that knitting log cabins will come in handy.

Starting 2014 off with a running leap.  Loving God, loving me, loving my partner Marv and all my immediate family.  My last stitched project of 2013 was Nativity.  If you are interested in cross stitching this piece, you can find it in the Shoo Fly Pie leaflet by Cross My Heart.

For 2014, Marv and I would like to wish everyone peace and goodwill.  Enjoy your Thursday!
