On a clear day we can see forever out here. This was the view outside, so we obviously spent the day inside where it was quite cozy.
The wind was blowing so hard it created drifts inside the garage!
I took the opportunity to make some ditty bags for the grands. Fortunately I was up early Saturday. The blizzard was scheduled to arrive at 9 a.m. and the garage was still relatively warm from Friday when the temperature hit 50 degrees. I needed to spray the cloth with a sealer before printing so I backed out the buggy, sprayed my cloth and put it back in the garage before the blizzard arrived.
(Here's the full tute for making the ditty bags - they make great gifts!)
Talk about cabin fever. Golly, as the day progressed, we weren't able to see much of what was going on outside.
Definitely mitten weather in Iowa, wouldn't you say?
I had baked these mittens a few days ago and found a way to display them in an antique mirror frame ( I just love whatever the heck veneer finish is on that frame ) A Christmas pick gave it a nice wintry Effect.
Since I didn't attach anything to the frame, I figure I can use this all year long, just change out the mittens for something seasonal.
I also prettied up this awesome antique candle holder I found at Streck Sales (my favorite little store!) It sure brightens up our little kitchen dining area. (What do you think Joleen??)
That fairly well sums up how I spent my blizzard day. How was your weekend?
