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...
