Be Warm

Although we had a quiet weekend, I really didn't get too much stitching done. My eyes were bothering me far too much with the dreaded dry eye syndrome. I remembered too late, after prying my eyes open on Saturday morning, that I haven't been running the humidifier in my bedroom and this hot heated air in the house has done me in. So in between the irritated scratchy feeling, I have bouts of my eyes watering as if I'm crying. Needless to see I look a little raccoon-ish right now, and gridding Christmas Elegance was out of the question.

I did get out on Saturday with Marg, to our favourite quilt shop in Uxbridge, called Quilter's Cupboard and we signed up for the Saturday Morning Sampler.


I finished up a small Shepherd's Bush piece, from the Be-Attitude series from last year. This is called Be Warm and seems very appropriate for this January weather - we are having freezing rain today. I used some buttons called Dress It Up and they match very nicely. I think I'll try to finish this into a small pillow, hopefully I can find some fabric in my stash. And, with my thanks to Heather (Quilt or Stitch), I have the SB freebie Be Happy which she so kindly sent to me.

We're still very cold here in Kennewick too so seeing your cute little bundled up snowman warms my heart. :D
Take care of yourself!

Be Warm… right! It’s so cold here… I am trying :D

That is so adorable! I like the little buttons on there. It’ll look great as a little pillow. You are most welcome for the freebie, it’s a very cute chart. I have plans to start that up after I finish the ornament SAL I am working on ^_^.

Wendy, I hope your eyes are feeling better today. I have a similar problem to contend with, and it always flares up when I want to stitch the most! Take care!

It is so hard to keep the ol' peepers happy during the winter, isn't it? I just popped a few drops of lubricating Visine in mine and they're feeling much happier. ;)

Your SB finish is really cute!!
