Surprise! We got more snow! And a finish finish!

As you can see, we got LOTS more snow.  About 12 inches.  I couldn't open the deck door because the snow was too high!  From my last post, you all know how much I love winter well look what I got for verbalizing that.  We are expected to get a couple more inches on Friday and couple more on Saturday.  I have given up on clearing a path for the dogs and trying to walk them.  Daisy's exercise is now following me up and down the stairs until shes pooped.  She looks at me like what are you doing?? But, being that she is loyal she follows me every time.  The following shots are from the back yard.  First one was last week, a beautiful sunset with pretty pinks and oranges.  The Pine grove we pass on our daily walks.  And the last is a picture from this morning after the storm passed we ended up with a bright sunny day.



I finished this pincushion for Ellen from my Wednesday Stitching Group.  We both enjoy our cup of tea and I thought of her when I saw this pattern.  I included some counting pins that I picked up at Celebrations of needlework last year.  They were the perfect purple color.  I filled the pincushion with crushed walnut shells, and even though it was a little tricky I like the way it fills out the corners. 
Right now, I am working on a piece for my Valentine swap and Thistle Accesories.  I will post a picture when it is finished because I don't believe the recipient follows my blog.  I will leave you with a note of thanks for following my blog and taking a peek into what is happening in my corner of the stitching world.  Happy Stitching!

I was wondering where that tea design came from. I could see stitching that up for some tea lovers!

Beautiful pics especially the sunset, I'm going to whisper that I do love snow as I feel I've probably seen enough of it this Winter!
Cute pincushion but would have to be 'coffee' for me!
Hope you get lots of stitching done whilst the white stuff melts away xxx

You really have gotten socked lately haven't you? Pretty though!
Fabulous job on the pinkeep.

I'm sure Ellen will love the pincushion. Snow looks lovely when it flutters to the ground, but once it starts to pile up it loses some of its charm.

Love your little tea pin cushion! Pretty sweet! I too am wondering where you got the pattern from. I've been looking for the perfect little tea design to stitch for a fellow tea loving friend.

Love also your snow pictures... or just looking out of my window and admiring the snow but I just wish it wasn't so cold...LOL

Sure is a crazy winter. When its -12 out, it feels like spring at 35 degrees. Way to much snow for me.
I will have to try the walnuts sometimes. I tried acorn caps once.
