A day in Niagara on the Lake with my daughter.

Just had a lovely day of shopping and lunch with my daughter in Niagara on the Lake.  The snow was falling so softly and it wasn't too cold thankfully.  We ate at the Shaw Cafe which my fellow helped to build.  Here is a picture of the cafe ... sans snow!

Is it really January???

I just got back from a 2 hour ride on my bicycle!  In January!  In CANADA!!!!  Never in my life have I ridden my bicycle in January.  My fella is 4 1/2 hours north trying to find some snowmobiles trails that are open....not many are.

I am currently knitting a cute little pullover and pant set from Bergere de France.  Our first grand-baby is due mid February!

Bergere de France 191.77
I am 3/4 done the back of the pullover.  The needles are so tiny so progress is slow but I am enjoying this labour of love.

I got this pattern and kit at Stitch in Jordan.  Check out this charming and unique wool and quilt shop.
