And more houses...

Aren't these beautiful! Its so nice to see some colour at this time of year, especially when outside everything is so white. Not that I'm complaining, in spite of the freezing cold and blowing snow, it was wonderful to be outside yesterday and enjoy that fresh crisp air with crunchy snow beneath your feet. And of course the dogs loved it.

Last night I worked on my Houses of Hawk Run Hollow. It takes a little getting used to, this magnifier, but its coming.

And to the lady who asked me about the magnifier I use, I checked all over it and couldn't find a brand name anywhere on it. I bought it used from a garage sale a couple of years ago. It was lying on the ground at the side of a driveway and I recognized it from ads in the stitching magazines. And from CSI! This one attached to my table and has a lot of knobs that allow you to find the correct position to hold it in. And it has the true daylight bulb which I love. I think I paid a whole $7 for it!

Your flowers are beautiful!

Our crazy weather continues...we awoke to zero this morning...3 days ago it was minus 28! I'm feeling better so I may get out and enjoy the fresh air.

Could you give us more details on Carrie's Attitude piece?...I keep going back to look at it...I may need my own attitude!
