It is very cold here.  Inside and out.  Our furnace isn't working at the moment and it was 52 degrees in the house when we woke up.  Outside it is 11 degrees.  I have my oversized MIT sweatshirt on.  It is the warmest one I have.  DH is wearing a coat as he fixes his salad for lunch.  The repairman just got here so there is hope of warmth in our future.  At least we have light and electricity.
I was very happy with what I accomplished yesterday.  I got something done on all three major projects.  I didn't get my steps in so I'm trying to make up for that today.
I thought I could crank out that roof to Home Sweet Home yesterday.  Well, I only got half of one side done.  Things always take longer than I estimate.

THe color is actually much more vibrant than this photo.
I got the hard disc sewn onto one side of the thread winder holder.

 I started the other side which seems to be much easier and will look nice and even when I'm done.

I got one of four sections of the lawn of Hampton Court done.  I was afraid to do this so this is a major victory as I think it turned out fine.

Stay warm!

  1. Sure hope your furnace is fixed soon. Perhaps I should send you some of our heat? Hampton Court is coming along well. I love the colours of the cottage roof too.
