A little ice cube!

A Bent Creek Design.

This is the little extra design that came off The Very Cold Snowman leaflet from Bent Creek. I finished it a year ago and haven't been able to figure out what to do with it so a couple of weeks ago I made it into a cube it. The ribbon is a bit to much but I didn't have time to change it before my friend Karen took it home with her. As she said, the face matched her other snowmen in her living room set so it was meant to be;). She's to funny!

Sorry for the picture, I just snapped it really quickly before Karen and her husband left that evening. It's really nice to have friends that appreciate and takes care of stitched gifts and Karen is one of those friends.

I had a lovely evening last night just relaxing after running my errands all day. My youngest daughter goes to a kids day out program on Fridays from 9 am to 2.30 pm. I bit of a long day but she really does love it.

This means that I'm on my feet all Friday trying to run errands that it's hard to bring her with on. I have slowed down a bit, now I go and work out in the morning before I start but I'm still exhausted after running around all day. So yesterday I worked out, paid my car taxes (stood in line for 35 minutes), had coffe with Claire, drove down town to pick up my Australian oil painting which I had framed by Ruth Richard's Gallery (she's THE best framer in Omaha IMO), stopped at the second hand book store, got Under Armour gear for DS, and did pick up some clothes for the girls at Old Navy. I think I put another 100 miles on the car just doing itty bitty errands.

So most Friday evenings I'm so darned tired I don't even stitch!! It will actually be nice when DD starts preschool next year which means shorter days but I have 2 days to run my errands on. I had my new yummy books yesterday though so I was nice just relaxing and reading.

DS and DH left for Iowa yesterday afternoon. It's a soccer tournament there and due to the fact that the forecast was that it was going to be cold and rainy all weekend we decided that I and the girls should stay home. I think that the forecast improved but we had already made our plans at that point so we didn't change them. DS was a bit disappointed but I think it will be nice for him to have some one on one time with DH. They will have so much fun hanging out together.

I decided this morning that I will put away the Sampler Gameboard for now. I finished 5 more houses, 10 more motifs so it's really going well but it's starting to bore me a bit. Tonight I want to start Birds of a Feathers Valentine Holiday, it should be a quick stitch.

Oh, Kajsa, he's adorable and I love the ribbon! Isn't it lovely when we stitch a gift for someone who truly appreciates it! :-)
