Let it snow

Those of you who know me are probably wondering why I would dare to use the title Let it snow when I hate being cold.  Well I haven't lost all my marbles and I'm certainly not inviting the snow to show up any sooner than it has to.
There is a certain white guy who depends on the snow and I'm not talking about Duke
It would be this guy. My latest craft project.
 My last trip to the thrift store I found embroidery hoops and picked up a few of them. Now I'm wishing I would have bought more since they were only fifty cents each. Looking at the picture I can see I should have used some batting behind the fabric too because I can see the embroidery floss running from letter to letter on the back. Oh well, this one is just for me any way.


A close up of his face with a little creative editing thrown in.

Lots of things to do this weekend. If I don't get around today I'll catch up with you tomorrow.

Oh Ann, He's adorable... YES---that little guy definitely needs SNOW...

Heard on another blog yesterday about a cute stocking stuffer... Put a small container of Tic-Tacs in a card --and say that it is "Snowman Poop".... Isn't that cute?

Hugs,
Betsy

I'm not one for cold snowy days but your new snow guy would warm up anyone's heart!

That's a cute craft Ann! Perhaps the key to not getting any snow is in asking for it....hmmm...I could be on to something.... :)

Awwww, that's very sweet!

We were out for dinner last night and I saw a bunch of snowflakes starting to fall outside the window. I freaked out! I was NOT ready for snow and it just seemed to warm for snow.Then we realized that they had a winter scene set up outside the restaurant and it was a snow machine! Whew!

According to one of our local weatherpersons, you can expect to get your wish this year. For it is lining up for you-all get dumped on. We will get more than last year, but still be under the average of 17 inches. We just got around 3 inches last year.
