Here you will find me...surrounded by wool & cotton threads, hoops & needles on my lap & sketchpads scattered about.**

~Winter Is Still With Us~

Good day to you.  Brrrr..it is COLD here in Vermont this morning.  Our Spring teaser has left town and Winter has, once again, taken over.  We are a mere 10* at the moment and we've an expected high of only 16* with occasional snow showers..more January-like than late February to be sure.

This morning after Oliver & I come in from our walk, I shall put an apple tart in the oven as we seem to have accumulated an abundance of apples as of late.   It's warmth and aroma will help our beloved wood stove warm the house, making things perfect and cozy for a day of comfort and stitching.  On the agenda today....I've three bears coming to life, needle felted pups and a new punch needle design...all coming along nicely  for my next web show.

Speaking of Punch Needle....I finally have my stock of supplies inventoried, photographed and ....READY TO OFFER :)...YAY!     Below is a sample of the *Pattern Kits* I will be offering. :)  This one is for the ~Love Grows~ Pattern. 
Each Kits will include; 
~Valdani Floss~ 
~Weavers cloth~

**all decoratively packaged and ready for your hoop**

 I decided the kits were the best way to go for me for two reasons...one, I love a kit..it takes the guess work out of gathering the supplies one needs and two, it was necessary as I simply do not have the time for packing and shipping a lot of small supply orders....hence, the KITS will work perfectly for me and for my customers :)

WELL..Young Oliver is, at this moment, sitting here staring at me which means we are approaching 8:00am...tis time for his breakfast and our walk.  I am telling you..the boy can tell time!!!

Wishing you a warm and cozy day ...♥ Doreen
