Day of Grace

A cold, snowy, lazy day here in the mountains.
It's the kinda day to take your time, relax,
take a shower only to put PJ's back on for the rest of the day.
 That is what my sister told me is called a day of grace. 

There are no hearts decorating the house this year for Valentines Day.
I've got so many things packed away so the house doesn't look crowded for showings 
and I really miss decorating for the holidays.
 We changed realtors as of the first of the year and 
are much more hopeful that the house will sell this spring.

 Meanwhile I have managed to finally get some work done.
Robin Red Breast is finished. 

 He will be flying off to a new home as soon as Pog makes a base for him. 

  Strawberry ornaments are being stitched.
I love using this old school lunch tray to hold my work while in front 
of the TV or sitting by the wood stove. 

 This was my Valentines Day surprise from Pog.
His homemade danish with three kinds of filling.
Prune, almond and my favorite cherry cheese! 

Wishing everyone a Happy Valentine's Day 
and a day of grace!



  1. Your day of grace sounds lovely but even though it's cold and windy outdoors on this Sunday, I still have to go to work at the barn to feed and bed the calves and heifers. Oh my gosh, your Robin Red Breast is a sure sign of Spring and he's magnificent and so are your strawberry pin keeps. Your stitching is so precise and you do beautiful work.

  2. Homemade Danish. YUM!
    Happy Valentine's Day.
    Good luck selling the house. It can be difficult and trying.
    Hugs :)

  3. Louise, I hope you sell the house quickly!
    I adore your robin, a wonderful work of art!
    The berries are wonderful too!

  4. What a great way to spend Valentine's Day...A Day of Grace and homemade Danish! Robin Red Breast is oh-so-wonderful. Every stitch looks just perfect! We are missing out on the snow this year, but today was a cold stay inside kind of day.

  5. OH THANK YOU! Now I can call my lay about days something much better. And I'm glad you got a nice day of grace. We had one here too. I wove all day in my PJs.
    Hope your house sells soon. It's hard to have the house always walk through ready.
    Beautiful robin. The danish looks pretty good too! :-)

  6. I love it - "A day of grace" - Wow! We all need one from time to time. What a surprise to see my first robin of the year. Spring is on the way. Best of luck on your home sale. It will happen. Then a new adventure will start for you both.

  7. Hi Louise,
    We all need a "day of grace" or two or three!!
    I do that too, and feel so happy and comfy!!
    Your robin is beautiful, as are all your pieces!
    Love those berries too!! It is that time of year!
    Hope your home sells soon!
    Warm Hugs~

  8. A "day of grace" sounds like the perfect description :)
    Your Robin and strawberries are spectacular, you are such a talented lady.
    Hope your home sells quickly, Spring is usually a good time for house sales.
