Something about snowy days puts me in the mood to craft...perhaps because it is because I prefer observing snow from inside the warmth of my house. I am admittedly not a winter person but have really been trying this year to appreciate the beauty of winter.

As I type we have just had another snow move through and apparently there is more to follow tonight. It has been a very snowy February for the Hoosier State. It has given to some beautiful landscapes. Several morning we woke up to fog freeze glazing the trees like diamonds. Very pretty. But enough is enough...I am so ready for some sun and warmer weather.

As you can see my recent finishes are fall themed. Autumn is my favorite time of the year. I love the colors and the quietness of an autumn day. The Thanksgiving Sampler is a design by Frony Ritter from The Cross Stitcher magazine October 2009

I have put my first stitches on a new project. It is a freebie from DMC. I will be back when it is finished. In the meantime I hope you are surrounded by blessings and have been enjoying the beauty of the winter.


  1. you must be either in the NW corner of the state or further south!!! We are in Warsaw & we have had very little snow. Oh, we have had some, but not like other parts of the state!
    Love your stitched piece!!! I have that one kitted from the magazine but haven't gotten to it!!

  2. Looked at your work. Very nice pieces. Loved the Thomas train. My Grandson has a love affair going with the caracter. I made him a stool and had Thomas laser engraved on the top.

  3. You have some really pretty pieces. I love the colors in both. Warm and cheery. Perfect contrast for those snowy days. :)
