Home Alone

I am home alone for the first time for ages and it is really nice to  have the house to myself for a change.

My computer decided to crash on Tuesday and of course the computer guru was at work so he finally got it up and running yesterday.  Also the computer guru managed to go over our limit and the internet slowed down to dial up speed.  Talk about frustrating - fortunately it was only for 3 days. So I haven't been able to read blogs as they were just taking too long to load so will have to do a little catching up.

I have managed to finish off my monthly goal for Five Snowmen and without further ado here are 2 and a bit snowmen.In fact I stitched an extra 10 lines as most of them were short lines.

I am enjoying stitching these so much  I just love doing the fringes on their scarves so here is a picture just of their scarves.

Yesterday we went for a swim in the ocean and it was just so relaxing to float in the surf.  The waves were just gentle and not rough at all.  There was the occasional piece of seaweed floating by so I gathered a couple of strands to bring home and dry hoping they would retain their nice green colour but this morning they are a very dark green.  Oh well the thought was there.

Well I am off to do some guilt free stitching.  God Bless till next time.

Swimming in the ocean? You are torturing me, Annette! It has been below freezing here in Pennsylvania for the past two weeks!

Love your snowmen progress--you are almost done!

I would love to come visit you and get in the water!

Anyway, your snowmen are too cute. I have plenty of projects to start on but no snowmen. Maybe I should go shopping again ;)
