I also did the latest Take a Stitch Tuesday stitches (she's slowing these down so there won't be one a week, and they will be more beads and silk ribbon and the like). These are stitches 95 and 96 - the Linked Chain and the Beaded Linked Chain, respectively.
It was a busy week, with clean bills of health from my optometrist and my general practitioner, a stamping demo in Toledo and the Black Swamp Hosta and Daylily luncheon. All this despite the weather which, even though much better than the previous week, was cold and snowy... January continues to advance here towards a record, all-time snowfall --- we are now in third place, moving up fast with last night's half inch to one inch or so (only 0.1" separating the totals of first, the infamous year of the "Blizzard of '78" and second place years so we should be neck and neck right now!). With the snow we got last night, and with snow predicted for the next five days, albeit in small scattered amounts, odds are January 2014 will be a record setting month for all-time snow *and* all-time cold!
