First Snow of the Season

Well we got our first snow of the season. It was only about 2 inches and now at 3:00 pm its about half melted away. These pictures were taken at about 6:30 this morning.

In my last blog I stated that I hadn't stitched for a couple of days, well it was more like 4 days that I didn't stitch but I am back at it again. I worked on Abigail's birth announcement for a couple of nights. Forgot to take a picture of it, so I will up date that in my next post.
I did start something new (shocker) I was reading a blog and they were talking about a leisure arts leaflet from years and years ago. It was called Christmas Patches
This patchwork santa caught my interest ( I really like cross stitching Santas) and I went looking through my stash and found that I had that leaflet. I really wanted to do the big patchwork Santa but knew I wouldn't finish it so I settled on the medium Santa. All I have left is the back stitching.

This Santa is only about 5 inches tall so I will finish him as an ornament. And I got my patchwork fix for the moment. It took me longer that I though it would because I had to keep changing colors all the time. I should have him finished up tonight or tomorrow morning.
Well I better go get supper started - first I have to think of something to make?
I hope everone is having a great week so far!
Happy Stitching

So jealous of the snow, it is about 85 here in California.
My son is in North Dakota and will have to see if he got snow.
Love the patchwork Santa, very cute.

SNOW - I so don't want it to come to Central New York - The kids will not be able to go Trick or Treating without Mittens and Winter Coats.

Love your Santa... Thanks for Sharing your pics
