BRRRRR!!

Hoover dam but it's cold here! We had the warmest October on record here in the UK and now all of a sudden, Jack Frost has been trampling round here with his great big size 9 boots! It was so cold, I had to wear my gloves while on the way to work this morning, which is the first time ever this year. Fudge is also feeling it too, and is spending most of his time curled up on my new winter duvet!

'Ah...this is the life!'

That's just where I wanted to be this morning I can tell you! I love the winter during the day, but I'm not so keen on the dark nights, even more so because of my current situation. There always has to be a spanner in the works - but that's life, hey ho.

'Rose Trio' Update: Well, it's a very poor update. As you can see, I've only managed to make the drops slightly longer and putting the little heart shapes at their ends.


I've got Thursday, Friday and Saturday evening to myself, so I'm planning to get it all done by the end of the week. I really do need to start my 'Phoenix' asap, as I'm beginning to dream about it! Mind you, I suppose dreaming about a Phoenix isn't too bad - maybe it's my subconscious telling me that good changes are ahead, being as the Phoenix is a sign of rebirth and new starts - how cool would that be?! Have a good week xx

This phoenix project definitely fits the situation, Heidi! I sure see why you can't wait to start it! Why not? even if the rose trio is not finished, nobody's going to say something about starting the phoenix: it matches your current state of mind perfectly!
Your rose trio is a beautiful project though, so don't leave it unfinished!...
Your cat is such a cutie... Reminds me very much of my Phoebe...
Against the cold, I use bottles btw (wink)... because, you know, DH can play video games very late sometimes...
Lots of hugs, my dear friend. It's always so nice to hear fom you!
Take care!

Rose Trio looks fantastic - love the color of the fabric.

Keep warm! We are in a little (brief) warm spell in New England, but just came out of a super cold one.

Fudge looks very comfortable. Last winter I bought a heated mattress pad for my bed, and I recently dug it out as it is turning colder. My 3 cats love it, and I end up having to fight for bed space with them, LOL.

Rose Trio is turning out lovely. Who is the designer? The style looks familiar, but I can't quite place it.

As to the Phoenix, go for it. There is no reason you can't start one before you finish the other. The Phoenix pattern is gorgeous and stitching is supposed to be fun, so work on what is calling to you at the moment. You can go back to Roses later. :)
