Come Saturday morning.......

and no snow in our forecast!  Definitely a nice change.Yes there is still a lot of white stuff on the rooftops but so much better than we've had in the past week.

This is a bit of a catch up.  Be warned many photos to come.....

Christmas 2016, well it's a wrap.   Many hand made ornaments grace our tree.  And many of them are gifts received, thank you dear friends.


Treasures..... new,  a 3D snowglobe Christmas card  and family ornaments from Christmas's past.

An exchange gift received from Mary B.  Santa Sack Swap is an annual event.  I can't express enough my thanks to my partner.  Nestled behind the JOY banner is a Christmas Tree quilt that Mary made.  I will treasure it always.  A full size photo to follow.

Part of a gift made for my daughter.   Hand made brings happiness.

Winter snow

Breaking out the hedge.  A little fellow could get lost out there.

And yet more of the white stuff.

Recent visitors


footprints in the snow  and we discovered they belong to....

And the attitude I got for providing a bit of food.  I kept my distance, as did the cat.  In all the cold and snow it only seemed right to help out a bit.

And the men of the house...


Over the hedge the snow is really going away. Several dump truck loads hauled away and they're not near done yet.

And the noise doesn't seem to deter the hummers.

and finally, if you followed to the end of this post....when ideas come together


wine coasters with some hand applique, a birthday gift in the making

and a mug/wine rug for me.  Seldom do I make something just for myself.  

and that is a wrap!  Happy weekend to all.

That's a lot of snow. I didn't know they removed it with dump trucks. Where do they take it?

Your bird pictures are stunning. I can't figure how you get the little things to pose for you.

Happy Sunday

This was a nice catch-up! I like your saying "handmade brings happiness" ... so true ;) You got some beautiful gifts in the Santa Sack swap this year. The quilt is just gorgeous! What a lot of work went into your exchange. The photos of the little hummers out in the snow is something I still can't get over. I just associate hummingbirds with hot summer days, not snowy winter ones. Our snow lingers still, but we're having a warm day of 8C today with the sun glistening on the snow. Enjoy your weekend!
