Happy Chinese New Year!
It is the start of the year of the Serpent (or snake). People born in a Serpent year are said to be intelligent and quick, but prone to dishonesty. (Ouch!) They are also known as elegant seducers. Hmm, I’m not sure if I like that any better. lol! I am a Serpent, so I suppose I should embrace the good and the bad!
Today is also Totally Useless Stitch Along day! If you’d like to know more about this pointless but fun stitch along, check out It’s Daffycat.
My container for this month contains lots of pretty metallics. I’ve been stitching less than normal for the past couple of weeks thanks to my tennis elbow, but I was able to get in quite a bit of stitching before I had to rest. All in all, I think it is a pretty little collection.
In other news, we made it through the storm quite nicely. All in all, our area of Toronto ended up with around 30cm (about 1′) of snow. And thanks to a couple days of sun, it has already started to melt a bit. Tomorrow it is supposed to be 4C and rain! So, the snow might all be gone by bedtime tomorrow. Sadly, the little man did not get to go outside to play. He ended up back in bed yesterday afternoon, and while he is much better today, he is a bit weak from not really eating for five days. There is always the next snow storm, though!
