I've finally gotten a couple stitcheries done since all we've been getting lately is snow so been staying in and sewing this first picture is of the snow we're getting right now up to a foot they're calling for between today and Wed. evening guess that means my friend & I won't be going to our quilting guild meeting tomorrow night...darn! Can you see the cardinal in the bird feeder have to keep our feathered friends fed in this cold & snow well enough about that white stuff...

This stitchery is going to be a little pillow I think, love the saying...Home is where your story begins...
