BOM, Snow & Christmas
I really enjoyed the cute stitchery BOM that Bea at Capricorn Quilts so generously shared on her blog during the year. This is my block for December. I have stitched each month, but have two bonus blocks yet to do.
Last Saturday I made this bag and tag at my LQS, based on Abby's Treasure Bag pattern. What a fun afternoon and I came home with a finished project! I will definitely make more of these.
Today was a snow day for many workers in the area and almost all of the school children. It snowed and blowed and more is expected. Our neighbor came home from work early and couldn't find her driveway. She did unfortunately, find the ditch between our driveways. Thankfully, she wasn't hurt, but her new car has some bumper damage. This picture was taken inside my house looking through the window as the wrecker driver worked to get her car out.
My SSCS package is still tucked safely away, but the days are getting fewer until I can open it. Wonder if we will get our tree up tomorrow? Will the presents get wrapped? How about some cookies in the oven? Yes, there's still plenty to do, but I'm trying not to stress about it.
