We got a couple of inches of snow here Friday, late in the day till about 9:00. Needless to say, it really made for some stories today at work, of how long it took people to get home due to traffic! Oh my--some people sat for hours on the freeway! I live about 4 miles from my job, so it ONLY took me an hour to get home! And because I left 15 minutes early (I had the time...)they docked me for my paid lunch! Makes me think...seriously... was that necessary??!!
Anyway, all this white stuff has got me to thinking that I didn't show you all my decorations for Winter! So, without further ado... come see my snowmen!
These are my bigger snowmen... This is my first year with that snowman wallhanging, from guess where? Yup--a thrift store! Can you imagine?? I just love it! It is so well done...and so colorful! And do you see my Cardinal on top of the wallhanging, in the pine branches? He is a battery-operated candle, and flickers when I turn it on.
The two on the left are Hallmark ones... you know, press the button and they sing and dance. The right Hallmark one was also a thrift store find, and it is for my littlest granddaughter. She has grown up entertaining us with that snowman piece, dancing to the song over and over...The other two snowmen are battery operated also, and they change colors... Love that!
A closeup of the wallhanging. Look at all the different fabrics used. Just wonderful!
And here is my other winter wallhanging. Can you see the sequins all around, like snowflakes? Got this one at a charity auction we held at work one year. So glad I got it!
Forgot to show that I stitched up, rather quickly, new letters for my display, for winter! N-O-E-L just wasn't working for me...
AND... I had a LOT of time to stitch this weekend, thanks to the snow, so I started and finished a piece! It is Bluebird Sampler by Threadwork Primitives. I really really like this one. Am pondering how to finish it... (not the best picture... it was cloudy this morning...and dark this evening...
Well, that's it for now... Wonder what I will stitch tonight? A WIP, a new small project, a new Large project... who knows??
Till next time,
