First Snow!

Our first snow of the season... I wasn't sure we would have snow, the forecast changed every time I turned on the telly. I woke to the sound of rain, and a sinus headache, and the temp at about 40 degrees. The temp fell slowly, and the snow started after a couple of hours. Nothing stuck at first, but as the ground cooled it began to dust the ground and cars. It is so pretty! If the rain/snow line had stayed stationary, we would have several inches, but it would snow for awhile, and then rain for awhile, then snow and so on. The result is a slushy thin snowcoat, but I loved watching it anyway.
So while I was enjoying the flakes, I also enjoyed sewing. Though I would love to say I got to sew on my LOTR project, my son's Christmas easily
took precedence. I hope what I made him fits... he's been gone 2 years, and is fit and muscled. Anyway, I enjoyed making it. Another shopping trip and we will send the packet off to Okinawa. It is a very long trip, halfway around the world. I miss him.
I did try to sort through all the gorgeous fabrics I have been fondling for my Arwen and Eowyn dresses... I also got a soft cotton dress cut out to try as the underlayer of the Requiem Dress. I dyed the knit fabric along with the silks last time, and it turned a gorgeous blue color.
And, I took pictures of some stuffies I made, which will be for sale soon! Seems things are marching along...

Everything takes more time than you think it will and then, this is just a busy time of year. I'm ignoring Christmas cards and I hope that Ian doesn't think of them in time to matter. Your little critters are cute. Shop fodder??

Wow- look at those cute kitties! You are so talented, Kim- do you have a link to your ETSY? I looked but didn't see it, but then, I have been known to overlook things sometimes. (All the time according to my Hubby.)
Once the holidays are over I need to make some things for my little ESTY shop, too... seems like life has been too crazy to craft lately. (And that STINKS!)
Enjoyed my visit with you today!
