Chilly February Morning
Henrietta gazed out the window at the rhododendron on a chilly February morning…
...which is in its February full bloom glory, and looks so lovely from close up…
…but it is really very windy with 60 km/h gusts and cold at -9 C with the wind chill!
Henrietta dashed over to the front porch to check the mailbox…
…and then ran inside to sit by the fire to read the messages of love from our friends near and far…a sweet valentine from the far away Whoopsadaisy Hittys, and an augmented hand woven blanket from One Small Stitch up the hill.
We posted a blog about the blanket on January 22. Click here for that post. Thanks so much to One Small Stitch for offering to finish the edge with some beautiful crochet. We think it is a lovely edge and now it looks like the big ones she’s made!
I do love Henrietta’s beautiful cobweb Shetland shawl. Jean’s lovely blanket is clearly going to be very popular with both Hittys and Hitty-kittys!
Kittys always know, and occupy the warmest places in the human house and the Hitty cupboard!
love Henrietta’s ladybug and her shoes. Happy she and kitty are staying warm, it is a very cold wind.
Thanks! and thanks for your efforts on the Hittys behalf – they think their blanket is perfect now – that edging is just exactly what it needed!
The girls should wrap up warm, and not just during power outages!
Luckily we have Hitty quilts, blankets, coverlets, shawls sweaters and coats enough – and a wood stove for when the power goes out (as it did!)
Your gentle photos give some softness to our frigid day today. The gift is beautiful, the shawl is gossameric, and the sweet Valentine was a cherry on top of a day of gifting.
It was cold outside but humans and Hittys had very warm heart-cockles today!
Very special gifts for Henrietta. Looks like cat is happy too. The pink Rhod’s look lovely.
That ladybug is great. You always make me smile with some kind of surprise.
I am happy you smiled, we are happy and grateful for the love we received today, and always!
so beautiful dear Hitty Lady, and beautiful gift too. Ours still in the drawer,… how sad, Thank you for this beautiful post, as always made me so happy. Love, nia
One day, Nia! We value our friends very much, and their gifts of love – not only the things in drawers, but also the kindness and generosity and friendship!
you are so nice dear Hitty Lady, you are so nice… Blessing and Happiness to you, Thank you, how precious your being for me. Love, nia
what a nice spot to relax in front of the fire with that lovely blanket and sweet card….and of course a sneaky kitten!!
