Snow, Sunshine, Scarves...


Our Winter February snow we had yesterday stopped at about 6 inches.  I am very grateful it was no more.
Today we have glorious sunshine.


The trees were dropping their snow very quickly.  Mr. C did have to shovel the driveway.  He cheated this time and only shoveled two tracks for the 4X4 truck.  That alone took a couple of hours work.   Our driveway is very steep with 16% grade and very long.  This morning after Mr. C returned from his morning meeting he admitted his drive was extremely icy and he was more than sideways several times.  Thank goodness he knows how to drive and handle the truck.  Not Me!!!


This Crepe Mrytle looks more like a cotton tree with the snow on its branches.  I didn't take any photos but I did shovel off our huge deck.  I never finished as it was way more work than I could do.  Maybe I can do more tomorrow since I know the snow will wait for me.


I have been able to complete another two pink scarves for Vicki's Pink Scarf Project.  There is still time as the completion date is this October.
 

On this purchased pink and grey scarf I embellished it with a silk flower and button detail.  I hand gathered sections to give it interest.  This is a charm of hope I attached and stitched pink pearls in the shape of the pink cancer awareness ribbon.  Every stitch I made I put my prayers and love into this scarf for someone who is brave and courageous.  Not everyone likes frilly so I thought this scarf would be a good alternative choice.
I am feeling good about completing several projects.  I even finished my little snowmen lanyards and earrings.  Thank you for the comments of how cute they are.   I also completed two birthday gifts for upcoming dates.  No photos yet as I wouldn't want to spoil any surprises.
I am having a blast hopping some blogs.  It is amazing how much inspiration there is in visiting these blogs.
Welcome to my new followers.  Thank you to all my followers...especially my loyal friends who leave me comments.  I do adore reading the comments.  Mr. C says I am addicted to them.  Hmmm...could be.  This seems harmless enough to me for an addiction.  
Happy Hearts are Creative Hearts...

  3. P.S. And tell Mr. C. that there are far worse vices you could have - gambling and hanging out in saloons, for one!

  4. Although I don't miss the cold, it is nice to see photographs of the snow. When we lived up north, we had six outdoor keenel runs to keep clean - even when it snowed. I don't miss that!

    I love your scarf finished, Sherry! Each one of them would be a treasure to own.

    Happy Thursday, my sweet friend.

  5. I would just play in the snow all day, make snow angels, snowmen and have a snow ball fight. Love it. Your deck is amazing with all that beautiful snow. I am sure it is a lot of work though and dangerous to drive in.
    Your scarves are very nice. Love the one that you put the pearls on imitating the pink ribbon. But the other 2 look so warm and girly. TFS. ana

  6. I love your pictures of snow and sunshine. I'm still patiently waiting for snow, and we're only about 50 miles south of Chicago. We've had about 2" this year, which is very sad. I love snow! Ice is another matter... be careful out there!

  11. Hi Sherry, your scarves are gorgeous and I love the embellishments as much as the frilly. They are going to be a blessing to someone special.
    Your snow is pretty in the sunshine. Be careful on the ice.
    Yes, if we have to be addicted at least we know we are among dear friends.

    Hugs, Celestina Marie

  13. First, your backyard is amazing! If I could have a large wooded lot with masses of trees and bushes I would be in heaven. The pics with the snow just makes it all a wonderland. And I know what you mean about comments and followers.. it is "addictive" but what a way to go!!

  15. Beautiful scarves. We got hit this past couple days with almost 12" of snow. We are finally digging out and the sun is shining down. Wishing you a beautiful day.

  16. your snow looks gorgeous.....maybe the sun will stay out long enough to melt it all away and save you from shoveling the deck! then you can stay inside and drink mugs of hot chocolate and watch little marshmallows bob around on top! your scarves are beautiful....congrats on finishing so many fabulous projects! you go girl! xox
