Random 5 for Friday: Daffodils and Snow – Needlepoint – embroidery pattern – twitter – Valentine’s Day

1)February 7th, it snowed. My daffodils were budding, so since they were budding, I’ve decided to count it as fulfilling the snow-daffodil ‘saying’ for the year.

Thankfully the snow melted quickly.
February 9th, my mini daffodils started blooming.

2)I’ve been working on my ‘Classic Impressions Needlepoint‘. I’ve made progress, it’s not really noticeable progress because I’m working on little details. Needleworkers will understand that sometimes a lot of detail work doesn’t always look like a lot of progress. So, I’ll update when it shows progress.

3)Not sure what to make of this curious looking embroidery pattern: ‘Mushroom Girl’

It’s not a naughty photo. If you get a chance, click the link above.

4) I have a question for twitter users:
My blog has been linked with my twitter account since I opened it. I’ve gotten only a couple hits from twitter over the years.
Here’s my question: do you think twitter is an asset to your blog or a useful extension of your blog?

5)
Happy Valentine’s Day 2020!

Wishing you all a fabulous weekend
of warm smiles and sunshine.

 

 


 

Fun Surprise Gift

IMG_7140Rarely does my husband and I do anything for Valentine’s Day. We enjoy just being together and celebrate it fairly quietly. We share the day going for a ride and/or cooking. However, This year my husband decided to surprise me with a gift he said he had been thinking about buying me for awhile; my own drill and drill bits. What a wonderful surprise it was too. It’s a super fun gift. I love the tools and the handy box to tote it in. I’ve had a little dremel for years. It does well for light-duty small stuff, but sometimes it’s too light weight for some of my projects. My husband’s drill is big and awkward and too heavy for me to use very successfully. I usually have him to do that part of a project if need be. I’m glad to finally have a drill that’s more my size. I adore my husband for getting me such a thoughtful useful gift.
He’s a peach, that man of mine. hugs

I hope your weekend was an enjoyable one &
your week is filled with good cheer & creativity.
