my face is frozen but my fingers work!


Just back from the school run and sitting with a nice warm coffee trying to resume feeling in my face. It seems which ever way I was walking the snow and cold, cold wind were trying to attack my face. Can you get some sort of face snow guard??!!

Thankfully my gloves did the job of keeping my fingers warm and so I can work on some of these WIPS. I'm keeping the list short, trying to prioritise the things that need finishing, the ones that are fun and the ones I can easily pick up and put down!

in progress

- what I'm temporarily calling the May quilt, blocks are in progress:



- Bloggers BOM, binding sewn on - just needs hand sewing - nice project for today if I get a chance:


- Woodland Sampler, working on the frames before the real fun begins. I'm finding cross stitch very therapeutic:



- Rose Stars, still adding them on whenever I fancy a bit of EPP

no progress

- Braid quilt, still needs borders
- tooth fairy cushion, still all cut ready to go, sat in a nice pile just waiting
- HFWYG QAL, love this one but not rushing it as it will be for a dear friend.


So if my brain is still working that is seven projects on the go. I'm sure there are others but this will be my focus for the next few weeks at least. And that's fine by me :)

Off to read some blogs quickly while the baby sleeps and warm my face with more coffee!

  2. Maybe you need a balaclava! The May blocks look great.

  5. It was a three scarf day for me today on the dog walk. One for my neck, one for my ears, and one for my chin. Brrrrrrrrr.

  8. I have no idea how cold it is out there, the one advantage to having two poorly boys at home! After seeing your projects I am going to go and do a bit of embroidery now whilst these two are sleeping.

  10. It was so cold this afternoon on the school run that even my gloves were useless!!
    I need to make some progress on my Woodland Sampler, your frames are really coming on.

  12. I am amazed at all of the things you accomplish with a brand new baby at home.

  13. Brrr! Yup, it sounds like you need a balaclava, although you always run the risk of looking like a bank robber in one of those. Maybe you could make yourself up a pretty colourful one to look less thuggish? Oh, you're good with your Woodland Sampler - I am doing the frames as I go!

  14. Just imagining the balaclava'd mums at the school gate - nice look!

  15. Defo what Sarah said! I could have lived without the snow this morning too...

  16. It must be hard to do things when it is so cold - we have had the opposite problem here with it being too hot .

  17. It makes us appreciate spring! Enjoy all your projects. I'm working on my EPP tonight ; )

  18. yes there is, it's called a balaclava! I'd love to see you standing at the school gates looking like a bank robber!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Yep you need a balaclava! I'll swap your freezing for the heat that's hitting us in South Australia at the moment. I hate it 35+ and more, especially at this late stage of summer. Bring on autumn!

  20. I vote for using a Storm Trooper helmet for a snow & wind face shield :-)
