Fair and Square for Laura

I discovered today that Laura has actually received the Fair and Square blocks that I had stitched for her. I was beginning to wonder if they were safe, but saw today that she had posted them in the group blog a couple of days ago. I did not hear directly from her, so that had me lost as to what had happened. Anyhow, Laura had emailed me her likes/dislikes and I was feeling rather concerned as to what to stitch for her. Her likes are very unlike my stash. But she did say she likes dragons, and I am very glad that she likes my choice:
Dragon of Hope 2005

Dragon Dreams

32 ct Antique White Belfast Linen, DMC Floss, Kreinik #4 Braid


We are bracing here for very frigid temps tomorrow. It is not like it has been warm, or anything close to warm, here for a while. Now tomorrow we are facing temps in the single digits (F). For my friends who live in the world of Celcius, that is something like -30C .... brrr....

Stitched on today: Finished the first fob for the first Scissor Fob Exchange, and started Winter House Exchange project (No news on any of those international packages I posted so long ago arriving yet..)

What a cute little dragon!

I hope you can stay warm - we've got similar temperatures here, with windchills in the -20 range. We're supposed to have a warm-up by the weekend, though.

Love the little dragon, I'm stitching a little dragon for my son Jason! It's a freebie from Dragon Dreams! I would be freezing, it's 25 degrees here and I'm soooo cold now!

Those single digits F didn't mean anything to me, but when you say -30C... OMG, I can't even imagine what that's like!!! Bundle up, stay inside and stitch!!!
The dragon is so sweet!

I just love that little dragon Carol!! You did such a beautiful job on it too!! I can't imagine the cold you are having as I am sitting here in my livingroom feeling cold as our house I think needs more insulation and better windows. It has been in the 20's here and we aren't as used to it as we should be. My wish for your new year is much good health, and happiness, lots of stitching and new stash!! Debby :)
