We had about half a foot of snow in our neck of the woods yesterday! Quite a surprise I might add, as snow predictions haven't exactly panned out over the last few months. Just a few miles south, into town, there were only momentary flurries. It was hard to imagine. It was so all encompassing here. I snapped this picture at daybreak, just before the big fluffy snow cloud settled over us and dumped it's payload. The calm before the storm.
In case your hands are empty and eager for something to do, here's another pattern page out of my book, Embroidery Craft: Stitching through the Seasons. This is one of the theme samplers, called, what else? Skate Party! Quite appropos for a snowy day in January, I think. The entire piece can be embroidered as is, or with the felt appliques which are fun to work with. To download the pattern, click here or on the image.
