Telus TV and A Fib

These have been popping up around town like crazy. First you need to have Fast Speed Internet access, then you can get digital TV through the same access.

I was tired of loosing signal with the dish that I decided to switch. After all you got 3 months free service plus $60.00 in programming credits. It has now been 8 months and I have no complaints. The photo is of the one at the end of my block and I like how they camouflaged it.

I did stitch up the lovely tree design from Stitch Pink and do have a nice photo I could show you, but that would be fibbing. I decided to make a pillow out of it and had it all sewn up nicely, but there was this fold in the back material that bugged me, so I got the iron out, oh did I say I used dyed floss. Yup, the water ran out of the iron and all over the design and it ran like crazy. So I now have this awful looking un-stuffed pillow, I guess in hindsight if I stuffed it well that damn fold might not have shown. Does anyone know if there is a way of fixing this without ruining it even more ?

I recently added a couple of tickers to one of my posts and just realized the Birthday one was wrong.

To those of you who I thought I was a Christmas Baby, I couldn't wait that long. :)

Sammy Snowcone

This design is from Stitchy Kitty . I stitched it on 14 ct. blue Aida I had laying around using the called for DMC and DMC 115 for the scarf. I decided to stitch a back with the date and then stitched the two sides together. I'm pleased with how it turned out, even if I did forget to stitch the fringes on the scarf and put in a ribbon to hang it with. It sits in a basket and looks just as good.

When I looked through the December issue of TGOS with so many nice ornament designs, I decided to do this one. It is stitched on 28ct. DMC Linen col. 842 with CC Cupid. It is a very quick stitch, took maybe an hour. Not sure what I am going to put on the back of this one, but I am going to try and make a triangle ornament.
After all the snow we had Sunday, the Pineapple Express came through last night and poured rain all night long and most of the morning. The temps went up 10 degrees and all but a bit of snow is gone. :)

Winter has Arrived

This is what I woke up to this morning. The first is a view from my front window and the other the back. I really should be out there shovelling it, but believe it or not they predict "heavy" rains for tomorrow. So I am going to wait them out.

Just when I was going to take pictures of my stitching the battery died, so you'll have to wait to see what I have finished stitching.
