Snow, Sew and Stew

This is what we woke up to this morning. We were hit with 20cm on Friday and today will be about another 20-30cm. We already got about 16cm this morning and this is what it looked like. Did I mention I love snow?

As you can probably tell, I did not go to Ottawa. I sent my husband as my sinuses did not clear up at all. I am just happy I visited the doctor last week and got some antibiotics or I can just imagine what shape I would be in!

I have been busy on the sewing, knitting, crochet front though. Isn't that what snow days are all about? Friday I sewed little heart pincushions with DN3 for her little friends at school for Valentine presents. I would show you a picture of everything but the camera is dead after the outdoor snow pictures (there are 9 batteries beside the recharger, am I the only one that notices dead batteries?). I am also thinking about some crafty Valentines to do with her. Do you ever visit The Purl Bee? Well their tutorials rival Martha's, let me tell you. I was thinking we could try these or these crochet Valentines. Aren't they adorable?

Speaking of the Purl Bee. There has been an obsession floating around in my head waaaay back when I first saw these on Posy's blog. See how cute and stripey? As I am delighting in all the wonderful cosy items on the Purl Bee site don't I spot just the most charming slippers. I'm thinking these just may be do-able.

And since I am known for my late bandwagonning (is that a word?) I'm thinking I may start one of these. Because something like this was created just for snow days.

Oh, and the stew? That will be for dinner, isn't it scrummy looking? The recipe is from BBC Good Food.

Aha! Another one suffering with this stuff. Hope that your antibiotics kick in soon.

Nothing like a hearty, delicious stew on such a day. We're getting snow and rain alternately...a regular mess!

You should see the streets now, impossible to get through.

I hope you are feeling better, too!

Your L. Jennings story was great. Thank you for sharing it. I'm a little surprised that she was such a prima donna about it all. I knew that she had relocated to Toronto. Do you know if she's still there?
