Marvelous Monday Update 2/16/09

Weather
Mother Nature really pulled a not-so-nice one on us this past week. The week started out really nice. Sunny with temps in the 50's. I even saw some people riding bicycles to work. The next day, rainy and cold with temps in the mid 30's. On Friday night, my area received 3" of snow. So, guess what I spent my Saturday morning doing??? Today, I woke up to a temp of 7F. Brrrr!


Stitchy Stuff
I made a floss tag out of the ladybug I stitched last week:

I stitched this reindeer back in December, and finally got around to making it into an ornament. I'm not sure if I like how it turned out....

I was so feeling the "spring" mood, and our weather left it all behind and it's colder again. Sorry about the snow. Your floss tag is adorable!

I know exactly what you mean with the weather. Ours was the EXACT thing! Nice finishes....not sure about the blue on the reindeer unless there is something in it that has blue too? Other than that, I like it! Even though someone at work has a crop-a-dile, I might break down and get one with a 50% off coupon. I can see finishing ornament hangers with it! Hey, I'm not a week late responding!

We got the same weather system. But, then again, it's not Valentine's Day without snow, LOL.

The finishes are lovely

Love the floss tag ring. I am sorry about the snow. It helps me to keep our 40 degree weather in prospective though. Just as I am griping about it I read your 7 degrees!

I love the ladybug floss tag!! I like the pattern for the reindeer too.. I could see him stitched on moss green fabric with tiny twigs attatched at the bottom...
