45 years....

Happy 45th Wedding Anniversary Mom & Dad!
I know everyone says this, but my parents are the best in the world. They have always been there to support me, to cheer me on, and to aide in my continuing evolution into the person I strive to be. I am almost thirty (sigh) and still try every day to make them as proud of me as I can if only as a way of thanking them for everything they've done. So, ...
Happy Anniversary Mom & Dad.
I hope it's as wonderful as you!

It Snowed....

It snowed, and snowed, and snowed some more. It has snowed so much that we are now trapped. Cabin fever is setting in, at least for the rest of the family. I have been happily felting
on my comfy sofa watching Oxygen. I may start to go a little crazy soon though. I have run out of fusible web to start new projects and i'm almost out of embroidery floss. Things could get ugly. Hope you enjoy my snowed in projects!

Pumpkin roll (I would have taken a picture, but it got eaten too fast), dark chocolate cake with caramel icing, Jewish Apple cake, and cream cheese brownies.
an Easter Basket for the front door
and a felted heart, cinnamon, & button garland for my sad little pipe cleaner tree in the foyer.
Happy Shoveling!

Waiting for the snow....

Today is a double job day. A start at 7 a.m. at job #1 and finish at 2 a.m. at job #2 day. It is also going to be a snow day. A supposedly HEAVY snow day. I'm starting to think that someone upstairs knows my double shift work schedule and plans these storms just for those days. So far this winter there hasn't been a storm that didn't fall on a double shift day. Coinkydink? I think not. Sigh. How I wish I could just be at home on my snuggle couch covered in my latest felt project. No such luck. Maybe I'll try and pencil it in for tomorrow between shoveling sessions.
