Barbara, of To Stitch or Not to Stitch, is having a great giveaway- the newest Kathy Barrick design (I'm so glad she's designing again!) and a piece of linen to stitch it on, plus the black silk floss required. Here's the link: click here
Into the home stretch:
Still lots of snow to do, but at the moment, I’m tired of snow. We got about 16” yesterday. Today it’s close to 50 degrees, so it’s melting.
I also found my cribbage board from the old days, before Blogger:
This was handmade by an old friend almost 20 years ago who has since moved to Maine.
18 inches on the picnic table:
A wider shot of the ruler in the snow:
Side view of car. I only had energy to dig a narrow walkway to driveway:
My arborvitae next to my patio does not look happy at all. Normally you wouldn’t see the yellow corner of my house:
Opposite view of arborvitae and front corner snow bank:

Looking down the street:
I finished the water portion of Beacon House:
A progress picture of Beacon House:
Almost to the right side. But there’s still a ton of snow and water to infill, the numbers, 4 more pine trees, another dog and a person or two.
I also owe you a Christmas update: I’ve been reading a lot- Emily gave me a Kindle for Christmas:
(that’s the screen saver)
I bought a pretty pink cover for it:
She also gave me these 2 cross stitch books:
which contain some very cute projects. Dirty words, but cute!
She also gave me 2 pretty cardigans, plus some new horse ornaments for the tree, and LOTS of chocolate!
Rex Trailer passed away today at his home in Florida.
Here’s a story (one of many locally) from the Cape Cod Times
Rex and his sidekick, Sgt. Billy:
My best friend’s brother, a year older than us, was on Boom Town once. I think they made him the “Wanted Poster” boy that day. It was a fun (corny as all heck) show.
