Knitted and tatted picture plus snow snow and snow

Well we have snow, and about 4 inches of the white stuff, my garden looks quite pretty with the white stuff covering the weeds!!! It messed up today's plans. firstly I was going to do a craft fair at the Cheese and Grain in Frome, it was cancelled at 6.15am not surprising really with the amount of snow that landed over night but we were forecasted some more but so far it has not arrived. Vernon was going to help me so all I had to do was sit, he was also planning on visiting our sister in Law Sheila, but that never happen, he will have to go and see her another day before Christmas with their Christmas present. Now I have had a row with Tesco as they have not delivered Mother food order, I am not surprised but what really annoyed me was on my orders it says its been delivered but they cancelled it and never told us, I did wonder if it might get though but they could have rang and told us they could not get it to her.
One of the girls in the office Karen is getting married today, I have no idea if she has managed it, I have made a small gift for her which I took into the office with my sickness certificate on Thursday. I shall put the gift on my blog in a few days time when I know she has it.
The doctors have now signed me off for four weeks and they are hoping that the hospital will get the scans/x rays done by then. In the meantime I am now on a no fat diet, its a bit hard and it took ages doing the shopping last night looking at all the labels. It is not until you read the labels you realise just how much fat there is in so many products, and I don't buy processed food I cook food from scratch. They say I should lose some weight, good I have been trying for years without any success, not that I wanted to do it though illness.
Today I bring you a new picture I have knitted the foxglove in two strand of white and one strand of blue embroidery thread on number 14 needles. The flowers and sprigs of greenery around the base are tatted and the tatted butterfly is one strand of blue and two white strand of embroidery thread with beads in the centre and at the top of the antennas. The foxglove imps is an image that I was given by a do crafts member Angie. I meet her for lunch as you would have read about our lunches and being chatted up in the pub a few months ago. I coloured it with pro makers and shades of blue to match the flower well I that was the intention. I then placed it in a frame. It was going on my table today well that was going to be the intention.
I hope where ever you are, you are not snowed in and feeling cold, this north wind is biting at the moment.
So until we meet again in blog land take care and keep warm.
