Mother Nature is busy again. On Wednesday, the high was 65 degrees and the sun was shining. Today, we've had somewhere in the neighborhood of about 10 inches of snow dumped on us. The first snowfall of the year and it is quite a doozy. The snow is wet and heavy; the kind that makes shoveling the driveway quite a chore. Navigating the roads earlier today weren't much fun either. It seems like even diehard Minnesotans forget how to drive in this stuff from one winter to the next. Well, I'm home for the evening and I'm planning to stay put!
Here are some winter pictures for you of the area in which we live. The last picture I took through my windshield as I was coming home this afternoon. Counting the months until Spring arrives!
Despite the snow, this morning I was out and about. My mother had signed up to participate in a church boutique not too far from where I live. I had offered to help her today and tomorrow morning. Those of you who follow my blog know that my mother is a tatter. She has been tatting since eight grade; her eighth grade teacher (a benedictine nun) taught her how to do it and she has been tatting ever since (she's 78 years young.)
Here's a picture of her at her table. She has two small Christmas trees on either end of the table filled with white tatted ornaments. On the table, we had more ornaments, some tatted bookmarks and some tatted crosses.
Wouldn't it be cool to have a tree adorned with just white tatted ornaments?
We had a few other little handmade things that we sold too. Unfortunately, the weather took it's toll on the boutique -- since the driving was so bad, very few people ventured out today. There weren't very many shoppers! Maybe tomorrow morning will be better.
Well, I have more to share but will save my other stories for tomorrow! Happy Stitching!
