{ UFO's & WIP's }

well it's sleeting outside now.
...I have been house-bound since sunday afternoon.
it's a good thing I can keep myself busy!
all of the Unfinished Objects & Works-in-Progress
here will keep me busy for years to come!

above you can see some of the 'almost finished' projects
that will accompany me to the show this weekend....
they have yet to be turned into pillows, their hems turned back, etc...

and I'm working yet on more things:
cross stitched pockets and pincushions,
needlefelted bird's nest pins
and who-knows-what-else...
HOPING that the weather will cooperate for us this weekend and even ALLOW us to
get to the show...hoping it won't be cancelled becasue they are predicting another storm to come for friday the 5th....
since I've not been able to get anywhere,
I haven't been able to ship the new patterns yet, so
be patient with me...
I'm about ready to take the sled & hitch up Pinnochio and Dasiy, to get me outta here!
I have pot of Hot Dog Stew on the woodstove today...
you've never heard of Hot Dog Stew?
{ my Mom made this for us back when we were little & money was extremely tight}
here's the recipe:

1 package chicken franks (cut into coin-shaped pieces)
2 potatoes, diced
1 onion, diced
2 stalks celery, diced
1 clove crushed garlic
4 cups water
salt and/or ground pepper to taste

in a soup pot, place all of the ingredients.
cover & simmer slowly for a couple of hours...
don't let it boil, your potatoes will disintegrate!!
serve piping hot with saltine crackers or a loaf of crusty bread...
Hoping you all have a day filled with warm thoughts & warm hearts!
Blessed be~
