2017 Smalls SAL finish and a Little Crocheting

Here is the first cross stitch finish of 2017 and the one I stitched for the 2017 Smalls SAL.  This will be finished as a wee pillow for my seasonal dough bowl.

And here are little bears that I've crocheted for my knit/crochet group's charity project, Project Linus.  These are pretty quick and are fun to do.  We get lots of donated yarn throughout the year and I have a big box of assorted colors...some are just little bits. I try to use everything up by making stripes.  They are great little "to go" projects, so I try to keep one or two kitted and ready to pick up at a moment's notice!

These two were made for a friend that is having a baby in June.

We've gotten lots of snow and rain these past couple of weeks since the beginning of the new year.  Here is a pic from my laundry room window late in the day of the snow covered mountains with low clouds hovering above them.  It's a bit hard to tell where the mountains end and the clouds begin..Our snow down here is about gone.  I would have gone out to take it, but too cold!! 

Thanks for stopping by!
