And I am outta here

I am so tired of this cold weather. Tonights forecast is for -36C and that's without the windchill.
Thank goodness, Leo and I are on our way back to Arizona. Baring any complications, we should be on an airplane tomorrow Ottawa - Chicago - Phoenix. Oh, I so want warmth and sunshine.
Here is my progress on Noddy.
There are all these little creatures around the outside of the piece. I am plugging away at them. Soon, I hope, I will reach the halfway point.

I saw this on Michelle's (Cozy Egg) blog and thought this was interesting. Feel free to add it to yours.

Sucks doesn't it...the cold....I've lots all feeling in my fingertips and toes :o(

That Noddy...for heaven you have to go round the entire thing with creatures??? Oh for the love of God, you are a better woman than I - this is for a friend that started it and couldn't finish it right? You have definitely earned your place among stitching saints with this one....

Godspeed in your travels...will be thinking of you!

It must be very cold at your place for the moment. I don't like the cold either, but here it is not that cold.

Very nice progress on your Noddy, I love it!
Enjoy your trip, if you would ever visit Europe, you should visit Belgium also, nice places here to.
