Projects for a perfectly good Snow day




until we got the sudden weather report earlier this week that a Blizzard was on it's way.







There have been years where we had tons of snow.  I think that they are predicting several feet of snow.  I love to memorize Winter Enchantment.  So, I have my camera ready for the next few days.



I just came back from the supermarket, so there is food in the pantry.

While it storms,  I have some new projects that I am working on, like needle-felting landscapes.  It's painting using roving, I just started collecting samples on a Pinterest board.


This was my first attempt.  I will be taking a class in April and I have been practicing, so the snowstorm will give me a chance to practice even more.








We are creating a Grandson Retreat for the little blueberry, RJ.  I searched and searched for ideas for a little boy's nursery.  Here are some designs I created for the wall decal, fabric on the throw pillow and framed print on the bureau.  So, I have a few more things that I would like to make before the unveil.  We put a twin bed in there along with the crib and bureau.




I have been collecting ideas for decorations for a graduation party.  My daughter Sarah and her boyfriend Mike are both graduating in May from College.  They wanted to give a graduation party together, since they attended the same University.  So his mom and I are busy creating for the party which will be held in June.  This is the invitation I designed for them.










If we lose power, I can still needle-felt by candlelight.  How about you?  Are you expecting Mr. Blizzard, or are you one of those people who is somewhere sunny and warm?

Hi Karen, I will be a snow storm survivor and have plans to do a bit of knitting and photo editing. Your grandsons retreat looks to inviting. Happy recreating.

I have so enjoyed listening to Eva for the last few visits. I even dug out my old cd so I can listen to more of her beautiful singing.

What a sweet little landscape with the lamb by the water's edge. That looks like fun.

And what a special blueberry you have to deserve his very own room...what fun!

The invitation looks terrific. Sounds as if there'll be a fun party for the graduates.

One good thing about this storm...it's not a heavy snow. That might help with the power staying on.

Take care!

KAREN....your felted landscape is A MUST HAVE! AHHHHH! I am addicted to felted needlework lovelies and my sweet friend Penny at Angelsdoor makes the cutest animals of which I have a vast collection! Will you be selling these lovelies? I LOVE THIS ONE...are you selling?

Oh, so much is going on in my mind and heart. I can't wear my heart on my sleeve to the world, but I need to find a way to communicate the huge lesson I learned on this journey I have chosen for this year.

Thank you for all the support you have given to me my dear. Love to you. Anita

Hello Karen,

The storm hit us last night and is still in full swing! A total winter wonderland here.

I saw on TV that is going your way now.
