Don't you just love a snow day where you know you're stuck at home and no one can get to you and you get lots and lots done with no interruptions..............that's today for me!!  We had about five inches of snow over night and for those of you that don't live in the south, that's a big deal for us!  So I'm all snuggled inside, working on paper pieced carrots this morning, with lots of other class projects to try and get to today. 
Can you see all the little birdies hidden in the butterfly bush?  There have been dozens of birds taking refuge in the bush.  Glad we didn't trim it back yet.
And lots of birds at all the feeders.  And apparently some deer are hungry too.  Look at all the tracks! 
Don't you just love snow on a pine tree?  I do.  It looks so beautiful and graceful. 

I think the cars show the amount of snow in inches best.  

And I have snowmen inside to remind me of what's outside!! 

If this company were around here, they would make a fortune today.  All the kids were trying to find sleds yesterday.  I heard the stores were all sold kiddos managed to find some soft of "vehicle" that would hold two people.  Can't wait to hear about their adventures.  This will be little Joshua's first official snow.  I can only imagine the fun he will have.
Hope you're all snuggled someplace warm and stitching away the day.........

Several of you have been waiting on me to post Christmas pictures.  Too late but I think the following three pictures will sum it up!


Started cutting out the pieces for a little spool quilt this afternoon.  I've been working on class projects for so long I decided to take a break and do something quilty.  One block done and many more pieces that need to be cut out.  I decided to go with a scrappy red design for my "thread" blocks so far.  These will turn out to be little 3" blocks.  Love them!

Well, I think with the temperatures they're calling for here tomorrow we won't have to worry about finding old Frosty in the freezer......he'll do just fine outside!  Well, that is if we had any snow to make a Frosty with!! 
Stay inside, keep warm and do a little stitching!
