It has been a frozen and slippery world since our post Christmas snow storm and the follow-up New Year's snowfall. My primary motivation this winter has been stay in, stay warm, don't break a leg. So I've taken up some quieter (warmer) pursuits instead. I now have two extra pair of half chaps that I sewed up over Christmas. Royal blue and black ones with leopard trim. finished that project up yesterday. I've been doing some beading. Learned ladder stitch yesterday using 6/0 seed beads (big beads, big holes for my eyes to see). I have a new project in mind later today if YOUTUBE doesn't fail me to learn how to bead around a larger bead.
LSEGH is enroute with 50 bales of hay...so staying warm is not completely embraced in this equation ,bearing in mind I just stripped three stalls and a pile of frozen doo-doo.
