It did snow up here - much to Lesley's disgust - but it was yukky wet and miserable snow that quickly turned into yukky wet and miserable slush just in time for me to splodge through it on the way to pick the children up.
I was on the phone to Lesley when it was falling so had to run outside into the middle of the road to take her a photo so she could feel like she had had some too!
Before the snow really started I had a lovely morning at Patti's house knitting and chatting (although I think I made her lose count a few times - sorry!)
But most of my crafting energy has been used up on this little challenge so here's a sneak peek
but now you need to go here to see in full and to see Lesley's wonderful creation!
Gina's wonderful pink carnation reminded me that I haven't shown you my rag rug yet. It hangs on the back of the front door (which desperately needs painting!) and is one of the things that I can actually say I designed myself.
Many of the fabrics are from the family's clothes (for example, the chicken is made from a tiny tartan kilt) and I particularly like the "straw" under the chicken which I dyed with onion skins.
Finally I will leave you with a sight that really makes me happy (and slightly worried for my sanity at the same time)
Lovely rows of potatoes "chitting" in anticipation of being planted nearer to Easter - it feels like I'm gardening even though the weather is too manky!!!
