Why is it as soon as you decide to go on a diet everything you do has to entail food!
I just digitized & made this low calorie cushion to rest upon whist sipping my freshly brewed coffee

I will have to restrain myself from trying to take a bite

We are still snowed in here on the hill so I am just playing in the craft room
did a little free motion sewing on the machine
and drew a few chocolates
see i told you that's all you think about when you are on a diet!

So Cold

I cant begin to tell you how cold it is here in Herefordshire
I took these pictures this morning as yesterday it was like a blizzard the wind was whipping up the snow & blowing it everyware
It was so bad you could not open your eyes & had to turn your head away from the wind as it hurt 
we resulted to wearing eye protectors that you use for DIY as this was the only way to see

Thankfully the wind has died today & snow has stopped
but we are left with very icy conditions the snow has a crisp crust on the top
and ware the wheels of the farm vehicle have been it is so slipy you have to step back onto the fresh snow to get grip

This is hubby feeding some of the sheep
We have a large polly tunnel especially for sheep but when it snows it gets a bit scary as the snow settles on the top we often have to throw a rope over and try and dislodge the build up in case of collapse LOL

One of our farm cats that always follows me around 
she just loves the snow 

Until next time
Keep Warm

Sewing & Snowing

Hello again 
It is I the random sewer at large again
making some eye popping wacky cushions for the discerning colour loving customer
Wording digitized & sewn by yours truly with help from my janome 12000

Wonderful fabric by Amy butler Soul blossoms,
 laurel both sides 
and peacock feathers top and bottom
measures 18" by 13" in size

we are having our first snow of the winter today 
& looking out the window it is just starting to fall 
 If by chance I get snowed in I might just make a few more items this week {;0)
