Cozy and Warm Inside

Unlike the east coast, we are having a calm weekend.  It is cold outside, but not terribly so.

Friday, I spent the day finishing up all three of the Little Darling dresses I started on Thursday.  It took me well into the evening, but I was determined to get them finished.  They will go with the lilac and pink mohair, and the pink wool sweaters.  I still have to decide on a fabric for the white sweater.  Too many possibilities for that one.

I made a pot of tea (Orange Ginger Mint) on Saturday and got to work embroidering the lilac mohair sweater.  At first, the colors weren’t working out as I though they would, so I had to make some changes; I think I got them figured out.  Today I hope to get the left side of the sweater embroidered with a mirrored image of the right side, and maybe finish up the outfit.  We’ll see…

When I returned from my three weeks in Florida I found my begonias blooming and two of my orchids also in bloom.  My husband had also added a vase of tulips to the dining table.  I love to have flowers inside in the wintertime, don’t you?

Bye for now!  Hope everyone is staying cozy and warm!
