Family PD Day
The children are enjoying another long weekend off from school. Provincial holiday "family day" entitles them to have today off and they had Thurs & Friday off for scheduled teacher PD days. I however am sitting a work in the quiet office surprising those who are brave enough to venture out in this snowy weather. "I didn't think you were open today" has been a repeated phrase. "Today is a Provincial holiday not a Federal one" is my go to reply meaning simply that despite being just a tiny office I *am* open. Of course there are a few exceptions - my brother says their little post office is closed due to the fierce weather south shore is getting back east.
Fun in the Mail:
The 2nd cloth order arrived but sadly the "fog" colour looks like a faded oatmeal so I will be going with the purple tinged cloth originally arrived for hubby's bear.
No worries - it will go good with the baby sampler I plan to stitch for my cousin Rindi. She's due in just under 2 mths. I've chosen this owl cradle rocker piece for her. She already has the nursery painted and decorated with baby animals.
I'm not sure who will get the boat boy sampler yet - if it turns out my sister is having a boy, then I will make it for her. The mermaid I will do for my brother for Xmas as a play off on his job (he's a lobsterman).
This Tranquility will be for the kids bus driver for her year end gift. The majority of it is bead work.
I've started putting the back stitching into the Heart Warming. It's coming along.
