WIPs Are Piling Up

I did finish this one a few days ago.  I keep starting and stopping and starting and stopping.  I can't make up my mind.  Hopefully the one I'm working on now will be finished in a few days.  I did take a break from thread and made a hooded buttoned cowl for myself.  No picture yet.

It has been in the single digits here and the ice on our lake is 8 inches thick and we've been having a lot of snow nearly every day.  That's Michigan weather for you!  We didn't go to our Arizona house this winter for the first time in eleven years because my FIL has been in the hospital since September 2014.

We brought our Fuschia plant inside and put it in the basement.  It is real cold down there but it always survives.  This will be the fourth year for it.  It needs repotted this spring and is too heavy to be a hanging plant now.  This picture is from 2014 and the following one is from 2015.

My husband also brought the night blooming Jasmine plants inside.  Hopefully, they will survive the
winter.  We have to be careful which plants to set on our deck because numerous ones are poisonous to dogs.  She wouldn't eat them but I don't want to take the chance she might step on a spent bloom because she licks her feet every time she comes back inside.  She is a Chihuahua and I love her to pieces.
