Wow - I can't believe it's almost the end of February already!  I've been busy non-stop, but don't feel like I've accomplished much.  Ever have that feeling?

It's been a techie start to the year so far, new software at work and trying to use an iPad vs. a laptop at home.  It's very different trying to do some of the same things on an iPad when you're used to Microsoft!  I find it very difficult to blog on the iPad.  

And, we are having a looooong, rough winter here in Minnesota.  Schools have been closed several times, and we have snow like crazy.  I'm usually OK with whatever winter brings, but this year it started in November, which is early, and we have had more than usual snowfall along with more than usual below zero temperatures. Not to mention when it snows so much, the skies are cloudy and gray looking, so we really miss the sunshine. 

Yesterday, however, we had a beautiful sunny day.  The snow really sparkles!  I love how the yard looks when the snow is untouched.

It's hard to capture the sparkle of the snow in pictures, 
but here's a try:

And Ruby the Sun-Worshipper was
THRILLED to bask again.  
[Yes, I have flip-flops out all year long.]

I've decided that since I can't decide
what to TAT, I'm going back to working on
Phase II of the Tatters Across Time
Proficiency Program.  Which won't help my
blogging lack, since I can't show any of it!
But, I've had this 
phase for about . . . um . . . 4+ years.
I hope they will still take it when I get it done!


  1. The sun shining was wonderful! Now today it's supposed to be 40! Love you snow sparkle picture!

  2. Great job on the pictures! Our snow (not nearly as much as you had) has melted almost completely in just the last few days, which have had temps in the upper 50's and low 60's! I don't think they'll last but I'll take 'em while they last :-)
    Good luck on the TAT project.

  3. Your pictures look so lovely in the snow, You have the snow we have the rain, and it just never stops raining.
    I know what you mean about not achieving much so far this year, I have done no tatting and getting fed up with this hand that won't heal.
    Good luck with your new project, I hope you share some of it when possible.


Thanks for your thoughts - I read and appreciate every one!
