A good start: finish #1

Holy ice packs Batman! Brrrr!!!! We're still in this grotesque deep freeze here in Alberta. I came out of dance tonight (it's Wednesday so it was Tap & Ballet) and it had dropped back to -32. With a wind so sharp it felt even colder. My poor vehicle protested the whole way home. Luckily no one was behind me so I could go a little slower than the speed limit since the highway was icy and I kept losing traction. I can't wait for it to warm up a bit. -20 or so is manageable but this -30 to -46c stuff needs to go away. This little guy gets it! 
Here's my first finish of the year! This adorable Otter Family. My da-otter (daughter) has claimed it for her room. She actually had said "it otter go into my room.." Her father rolled his eyes at our puniness. He's not as droll as we are. *snicker*


The previous start: long awaiting in my bin, that I've pulled out to work on getting complete this month is Sakura. A pattern from Lisbei's website (http://ludinthemist.canalblog.com) 


And even more thrilling is thatmy husbands Christmas stitching is all framed now. He got the piece for the holidays & thanked me, but now that it's in a frame & on the wall he loves it more. This R2D2 pattern is from an Etsy shop
