Stitching Sunday

Frosty has arrived in Alaska.

Frosty's snowflakes are dusting our mountain tops.

I love these two lone birch trees that stand together in death...there must be a tale about a pair of lovers wrapped in their bark.

I'm working one of Santa's reindeer. I think he will be a quick ornament and I may get another ornament started by next Sunday.

Fall has arrived. The leaves are starting to change color. My husband was home for two days so we did what many Alaskans do on pretty days...go flying. My husband has a new toy, a Super Cub. It seats two. 

Here's a full view of the plane.

Nice big tires for landing on gravel. I'll share a little bit more about our flight on Tuesday.

It's so strange to even think about snow in September. It certainly emphasizes the difference between the areas in both our countries. What a cool thing to be able to do... own and fly your own little plane! And your frosty ornament is really cute.

I guess you will have to leave that toy behind to play with when you come home on vacations huh. I was just telling my husband about your close encounter with the bear the other day.

I have never know anyone who has their own cool! Maybe I should move to Alaska and have more fun!
Frosty is adorable...such nice the holly leaf on his hat.
Thanks for linking up to Slow Sunday Stitching!

We have snow on the mountains here in Colorado. And love it! You've inspired my Granddaughter to make the same or close enough, felt ornaments. We've got a 6 passenger plane that we use on the Ranch. It's wonderful!

Aww I knew Frosty would be awesome when he was done. What a lovely toy for your DH! Mine would certainly have envy of yours!
