We had a lovely, quiet weekend here in Galway so I have very little to tell you. There were walks with the dog, dinner with friends, laundry (of course) and a little bit of stitching. I really enjoyed sit down to my cross stitch each evening.
The little bone is done and dusted and (with any luck) the "HOME" will be finished tonight. Just half of the H left. As you may remember, though, the lettering is more "funked up" than this. I have to go back and do a little prettying up of the OME. Easy peasy.
For a laugh, do you remember that I made hand warmers for my family as a Christmas stocking stuffer? My SIL came back to me with this story of how she's using them:
"I've been meaning to tell you (and I thought everyone else would find it funny too) that I used your hand warmers when it was so so so cold a week or so ago to walk Lolo - I think it was 5 degrees when I went outside. Well, they worked marvellously! My hands were toasty warm the entire time. The funny part was that when the rice was warmed up it smelled delicious, kind of like popcorn, so all of the dogs in the park were hovering around me and sniffing my hands. They thought I was depriving them of a treat! It was very funny. I looked kind of like St. Francis.
Anyways, thanks for keeping us warm!"
Hilarious! Catherine, you are cracking me up!
