hunkered down .....

Last weekend was cold and blustery so we hunkered down indoors and this was what I occupied myself with .....






and these .......


  The mice are Helen's pattern.

I also tried my hand, with great success, at making spreadable butter just by adding canola oil and since we had some Meyer lemons I made up another jar of lemon curd that is so good we could eat it by the spoonful!! 

And what did Little Dog do,  you ask?  Since it was too cold for her to be outdoors for any length of time this was her favourite spot .....

What a lovely scissor hold, I must make one of those. Your mice are adorable, love the ears! Your furbaby definitely has the right idea, Bullet has been doing much of the same :D

Looks like that was the best way to spend the time while the weather was not friendly - & I definitely want to be a dog in my next life...!!!
