this morning it is -32 degrees C (about -25.6 F). We had that before. But with the windchill it is -52 degree C ( about -61.6F). Can it get any colder?????
I dont't walk to work anymore. I dropped off DH and DD and take the car today....chicky me ;-)
It's just around the corner from where we now live and I planned to walk there but the blizzard monday evening stopped me from doing that.

After a late dinner I was so tired that I wasn't in a stitching mood at all. But I forced myself to put in a few stitches at least....but after I did the first stitches I was hooked and stitched till midnight and made a nice progress :-)

Though my stitching time was very limited this week I got a little bit on Prairie Sampler done.
Peg, I'm going to set up a blog for the AAFG-SAL and will send an invitation to you. Hopefully we will find some more stitchers to stitch along with us :-)

And I was nosy enough to click on Ranae's link to the shop Needle in a Haystack. I've heard of this shop before, of course, but I've never visited their onlineshop..... And guess what, I'm hooked! They offer an absolute tremendous variety of 40ct linen!!!!! I'm sure I can't stand this goodies.
Yeeeehaaaa, I'm off.........stash-shopping :-)))))

Nothing else to talk about as we stayed warm at home for a cozy sunday... though the sky was wonderful blue and the sun was shining bright it was very, very cold again today.

At least I decided what to stitch on Glenna's Hello Neighbor RR :-)
This morning I don't need to walk to work. I dropped Lisa and her Dad off at the Daycare and at work. 'Cause it's really freezing cold today. The thermometer shows just -25 C but with windchill it's feeling like -38 C *brrrrrr*
So, see you later I have to hurry now.....

And I spent some nice stitching time on Prairie Sampler. These silks are gorgeous to stitch with....

I started the LHN Prairie Sampler. I was so excited to stitch with these wonderful Belle Soie silks and I love them..... :-) I haven't had a lot of stitching time yesterday as I was looking for a flight to Germany for Lisa and me .... but they are so much more expensive than last year. I really need a kick in the bottom ;-) to bring myself spending that much money....

Today we went tobogganing at Sprucewoods Nationalpark again...and DH cracked one of his teeth. We should really think on something else to spend our weekends. Do you remember, the first time we went tobogganing he broke our camera. I can't imagine what will happen next time.... Here's a pic of that ride he had that accident:
And a little update on Garden Pleasures:

Tuesday I had my first real apointment with a hairdresser. A lot of people recommended Pantages and that's what I decided to give a try after the disaster last october.... when I let my hair cut with a hairdresser in the Canadian Superstore and that was just awful. Finding out things like where to do your haircut for example is what makes live in a different country interesting and sometimes even difficult. It's often just the small things, life in general is not too different.

After visiting Sheena's Gallery where I bought a piece of 40ct linen we drove to Mrs. Twitchets Eyes where I have been before. But this time it was only one of the ladies there and unfortunately it was the same grumpy lady that has been there when I visited the first time.
On our way back we choosed an alternate road to the highway #1 and came through a lot of cute villages. One of them was called Holland, that's the German name for the Netherlands but this Holland wasn't as flat as the European Holland. :) But they had build up a little windmill so I think the first people who settled there have been from the Netherlands.
Today leaving the house after lunch I fell on the ground after not recognizing an icy space... and now my hand, my finger and my knee are really hurting.... :( I really should pay more attention. At least I don't need to go to the doc and I can still stitch :)
I have just a little progress on LHN's Garden Pleasures to show as I stitched a bit on a birthday gift.

I got a wonderful gift from Dane in an secret exchange. She even stitched a lovely Flatfold for me, though it wasn't necessary to send something crafted with it. It is my first flatfold ever and I LOVE it so much! Thank you so much Dane! Here are all the goodies she sent:
Finally I finished stitching Wendy's Hello Neighbor RR. I haven't had a lot of stitching time in the beginning but I really liked stitching on this one. I mixed parts of designs from Rosewood Manor, Little House Needleworks and Ewe & Eye & Friends. That's what took most of my time. Looking for things that work together.
Hopefully Wendy likes how it turned out....
When I came back home from work a nice little package from Stitching Bits and Bobs was waiting in the mail for me :)
I'm so looking forward to go to Winnipeg tomorrow....and visiting Sheena's Gallery wich is supposed to be the biggest crossstich shop in Manitoba....wooohhoooo
