I would say it is cold here today but compared to Evaline in the Yukon who’s having temperatures that are -35 Celsius our 33 degree F is practically a heat wave.  Now I have a sister living in Arizona complaining that it is only in the 60s out there, ha! What I would I do for a nice 60 degree day?  Anyway I went to my stitch in group last night and I worked on my “African Women” chart.   
However with all of the talking and digging through the remnant fabric basket (for more stash) going on I didn’t get as much stitching done as I would have liked, but isn’t that what you go to stitching groups held in your LNS for? Not to actually stitch, you do that at home. I only got one small piece of (sparkly) Aida and some much needed floss I couldn’t do without.  This is still the middle of the SWAT I told you about in my last post and I finished the section from my black & white project (ahead of time) with the help of my iPhone.
  I took the advice of another stitcher and plugged into my iPhone for a little stitching music and it was fantastic. I didn’t have to hear sport center all evening.  I will definitely have to do that again. 
Well going to make some more little xxs.  Thanks for stopping by.

Another great B&W finish, Minnie. Love it. :D

African Women looks great too. It's in the upper 70s here and the a/c just kicked off. *giggle*

Sorry I missed the group last night but your African Woman is really nice, your doing a wonderful job. Glad you found a wat to block out sport center while still spending time with the other half :-).
