It's difficult to determine how much snow fell because of the blizzard and gale force winds but it's estimated that about 15" fell in our area.
Because of the high winds, a lot of flooding occurred due to the surges during high tide in the low lying areas. Thankfully we escaped without incident and we didn't lose power.
You know what that means!
Snow day = S-E-W day! Woo hoo!
My day started by working on the French braid borders for Darlene's mystery quilt. I figured that I'd better take advantage of the fact while we still had power so I worked on them till noon when I took a break for lunch.
Immediately after, I decided to work on my new needlecase design. Have I ever told you how much I love making these little guys? Probably a million times, right? *wink*
I must have been on a roll because I finished it! I L-O-V-E snow days where I have nothing but time to use creatively!
Here's the front of Woolly Keepings...
The inside with the top flap unfolded...
And the inside, entirely open.
And I even added a little pocket on the back.
Wool and cotton combined...mixed media from my days as an artist...my absolute favorite!
So what do you think...should I make it into a pattern, sell it or keep it and add it to my collection?
