It's Oh So Snowy/Busy

Lots to do around the happy house today, but I couldn't help a pause to show you how snowy and dreamy it looks to Katie's delight!


We got to play snowballs last night which is always a lot of fun with barking, running, plopping in the snow, and all that other stuff that comes with cold weather fun!  If you can't beat it... embrace it!


The wood stove is roaring and we have lots of indoor work to do on the breakfast bar I showed you at the beginning of the week here.  The project has also expanded a bit to include fixing, spackling, and repainting the whole area ceiling and walls.

I also hope to delve into some tidying of the sewing room which should lead to finishing the tulips project I showed here, and I'd really like to cut more pieces for the X quilt!  Oh, and some new fabrics arrived this week that I can't wait to play with! 

Here's a sneak of one of the charm's pack I now have on my desk.  (yes I said one of... as in there may be a few more)  I already can't say enough about how 'me' Central Park is.  It's bright, cheerful, playful, and has such an innocence to it.  I'm torn on how it will be used, but I can't see making a bad thing from it!



Yes, we are keeping very busy, but honestly, that's just the way I like it!  A busy mind and body is a happy mind and body.  And there is nothing like standing back to admire the work you created with your own hands and determination. 

Lot's of love to you and looking forward to catching up with you on Monday!!

That first photo of Katie is amazing! The colours, textures, and je ne sais quoi just make you want to breathe in the moment like you are there yourself!
Can't say more - I'm off to the Moda site to have a look at Central Park ;)

Beautiful snow & Katie pics. It looks very fairytail-ish to me, someone who lives in a place where it never snows. Thanks for letting me see your world.

And the fabric!! Too much goodness in one post :-)
