Oh Snow Pretty & Powerless ~

Winter showed her beautiful self to us here in Virginia yesterday...
we haven't seen a flake, but just look at what we have this morning!
sweet little bunting fluffing up from the cold ~

a beautiful view from the tiny pantry window...

...it's a marshmallow world.
a view of our backwoods ~
the barn & chicken coops...

....another little snow bunting

~ Pinocchio in the snow ~
~ quiet and beautiful ~

since we've been snowbound, we were also without power for 15hrs ~
we melted snow on the woodstove to wash with, lit candles and played games last night till we went to bed...
but before I did that,
what better time to pull some floss and choose a linen to start a new design with?
the colors are DMC and the linen is
Weeks' Confederate Grey ~ 30ct.
what do you think of my choices?
my thanks to you all who purchased my new designs...
they are available in my etsy shop now as well ~
I am off to shovel, then if I can get out of the driveway (it's 1/2 mile long)
I'll get to the post office to ship ~ if I can't I will ship tomorrow morning for sure!!!!
have a beautiful day Folks!!!
blessings from the farm,

Hi Lori,

We missed out! New Market, VA didn't get any snow.
The PO is closed today, so don't hurt yourself shoveling to get out today.
Wonderful color choice.

Hi, Lori:
How pretty and fluffy like cotton candy. Pinocchio doesn't look like
he's impressed though. We still don't have any snow here in Massachusetts.
Do you want to send some our way?
I like the floss and linen colors!

Enjoy your day!

Love those colors! We have early spring here in NH. No snow...just brown and chilly with a good wind! Strange to think of snow south of me!

Nancy said...

Thank you for sharing your beautiful snowy pictures! I love your new thread choices - the bright 780 looks wonderful with the other colors.

Lovely, snowy photographs of the Farm from your windowpane. I feel certain that the peaceful time (sans power) shared with family shall be treasured always.
Wishing you joyful stitching with your soft, Springtime palette.

What an amazing snow storm. And to leave you powerless for so long. I am glad you had that wood stove. How fun to pretend for a moment that you lived way back when. Thanks for the post. -Steph-
