Brrrrr, so cold

The last 2 days have been our coldest of the winter and guess what...our electric went off last night around midnight.  Called Ameren Electric and they said it would be on by 3:00 am, a car had hit a pole.  No such luck, the other side of the lake got theirs on around 5:30 am.  It's awful to look out the window and see lights just across the lake and we are still freezing, finally got ours on around 9:00 am   Oh well, all warm now.

I have been working on a fabric book for the last couple of weeks.  Finally got it done and wanted to share it with everyone.

I have listed this in my Etsy shop.  I have added a couple of wall hangings as well.

Last year I won a pretty piece of embroidery work from Lilla.I have been saving it and finally decided to use it to make a pillow for my living room.  I have red accents in the room and this was just perfect.   I used a piece of red chenille fabric I purchased a while back.  Just added lace and 3 red buttons.  

Have a happy Sunday!!  
Hugs Jackie

Dear Jackie
That is just no fun at all trying to keep warm without electricity. It certainly makes us appreciate it though doesn't it?
Your fabric memory book is an absolute credit to you. Gorgeous lacework, collaging and images. Excellent composition also.
I am sure it will be loved by someone very soon who will buy it from your shop.
Hugs to you and stay warm and rugged up!
