A day off from snowmen

 First I have to say that we had a visitor last night.  Little Landon was only here for a brief time but he had fun. He was a busy fellow and also showed off his new hair cut.  Toddlers are so busy!!

Today I decided that I needed to do something different.  I have a dear friend that is in a tough situation right now.  I spent the day thinking about her and saying some quiet prayers. I was a member of the Nordic Needle  hardanger card club a few years back.  Each month they sent a card and the parts to do a filler for that card.

The stitching isn't very hard.  It goes rather quick.  The floss was from Thread works.  It was a pearl cotton type thread.  This also happens to be my first finish for the year!!  The sun was out and it was wonderful to sit in my room, soak up some sun and think about my friend.  The photo doesn't do this justice.  I suppose you will have to trust me that it looks better in person.

Taffy - I'm sure she will appreciate the card. I have also been thinking about her a great deal these past few days. CathyM
