Winter Is Coming!!

Actually ... Winter well & truly arrived last weekend. The temperatures stayed in single digits & the "feels like" temps would have made a penguin feel at home! BRRRRRR! I didn't poke my nose outside all weekend & the fire was kept tended so we didn't turn into human Popsicles. Yes ... GB & I are spooky-la-las when it comes to cold weather! 😜 And that was still technically Autumn! 😱 Thankfully, by Tuesday it had warmed up a bit & we've thawed out ... Though with the calendar ticking over to the first month of winter next week, I suspect our reprieve will be short lived ... SIGH!

I DID manage to squeak in a play date with my Bestest-Buddy-Since-We-Were-Nine Lynette before the weather reached Antarctic levels. I drove down the 'hill' & we decided to have an outdoor outing. Lynette had been playing in the kitchen, so we took a yummy picnic lunch & off we went to Mt Coot Tha botanic gardens. It was so pretty, even on a grey overcast day ...


This was in the Japanese Garden. Worth a visit if you're in Bris. We found ourselves a grassy spot with the occasional splash of sun & set up ...


Here's the chef with mini frittatas, fresh salads & a glass of kombucha. NICE! 😁 It was fantastic to catch up for the first time since my birthday afternoon tea ...we had a LOT of chatting & giggles to catch up on! Tee! Hee! Hee!

And then the REALLY nasty weather hit & I went into hibernation! 😜 However ... The bright side is, it's great stitching weather & my needle has been busy. Would you like a sneaky-peeky at what I've been working on? ...



I can't give too much away. 😜 I'm loving working with Cottage Garden Threads & pretty aqua & raspberry Tilda fabrics. 😍 And that's a finish for my tally, too. Which reminds me ... OPAMers ... Now is the time to update your sidebar tallies & email me your finishes. The year is just flying by, isn't it?! It's been a strange one, that's for sure & we're not likely to forget 2020 in a hurry. 😳

That's about it from me for now. Wherever you are in the world & whatever your government guidelines may be, please stay safe & be wise as things start to return to "normal". Take care of yourself & each other. Keep stitching & keep smiling. 😁 Til next time ...

BEAR HUGS!

CHEERS!
