Went out for my walk this morning. It was cloudy when I started. Above freezing though. All the paths were icy. I was so glad that I wore my Yaktrax on my boots to stop me from slipping! It was very quiet there. Not sure if that's because people were avoiding it due to the ice. Whatever the reason, it was so nice to be alone. There was still someone out ice fishing on the lake. Brave of them as most of the lake has unfrozen and I can't imagine the ice is that thick! I don't think it's that deep, but still crazy to go out on it.
I didn't have to go anywhere after my walk so I came home, got some housework done, packaged up some Ebay packages to post tomorrow and then worked on my Asylum Lake project. I feel as though it's never going to get done! I'm only up to mid-May.
I did go up to the craft room today, but I did more moving things from one space to another than really doing anything. Sigh. It needs attention again as that was where I stuck things over the Christmas period when I needed space elsewhere. It's something I definitely have to work on!
I did find up these lovely little paperclips. I didn't make them. I found them at the charity shop for 1.50. I thought they would make lovely paperclips to go in journals (which I intend to work on...someday ha ha).
I had to rescue them! They took a while for someone to make. Several of them have tiny rolly eyes on them.
I thought I'd also share a photo of the cross stitch I intend to do. I was going to work on it today, but the afternoon light was pretty bad as it was cloudy and dull out. Tomorrow is supposed to be sunny so I shall at least get a start. I did make a copy of the chart so I can highlight the stitches as I do them
There are a whole series of these 'In the Woods' charts. I have the woodpecker , but there are several on my wish list! I need to at least do one first. It looks like all whole stitches so hopefully won't be too bad! I had the fabric and floss in my stash.
** side note - I think I have caught up on all the comments left recently. I do read them all and appreciate them. I'm just not great on always replying though I shall endeavor to do better!
Those clips are so cute - no wonder you rescued them. And I love the beaver cross stitch. You will enjoy making that, I am sure.ReplyDelete
I like the look of the Beaver but would need a 14 count Aida. A whole series would look good as a groupReplyDelete
I'm doing it on a 16 count. It's the size I like best.Delete
The paperclips are very cute ... definitely keep them! I like the cross stitch picture. How big is it ... it may say in the picture but I am viewing this on my phone so can't see! xxReplyDelete
The stitch count is 100w x 130h. On 16 count - the fabric I'm doing it on - it will be about 6 1/4 inches x 8 1/8 inches so not too bad a sizeDelete
The walk sounds scary - I have a terror of falling on ice. Those paperclips are so sweet. Someone put a lot of work into them, even if they are small.ReplyDelete
The Yaktrax things I have are really good on ice. It was worse today, but I managed to stay on my feet! I agree on the paperclips. They took some work.Delete
Very cute paperclips and yes, someone put a lot of work to make them! The beaver cross stitch will make a lovely picture to frame once it's done. :)ReplyDelete
