For all of those growing little weary at this winter's weather. Our motto in the U.P. is, " If it were easy-- everyone would want to live here..."
But even the faithful grow tired of the frigid temperatures and even colder wind chills.
Our days are getting longer with three minutes of sunlight gain daily. My sewing room needed cleaning up after Chelsey's quilt before I could get back to another quilting project. Too tired, I grabbed a piece of Aida cloth and embroidery thread. So nightly, I made a few x-stitches with a free Pinterest pattern. I really wanted to use linen. Linen projects will have to wait until March when I can get new glasses. The contacts just don't focus my eyes well enough to see the threads.
I have three or four of these little pieces printed out to complete and sit on a shelf -- just to remind me Spring will come....
