Snow Day

Good Morning dear friends! It's a cold and snowy one here. No school today, so it's pajama day:) This is the earliest snow day since I've had school age kids. Our district was one of the very few in the area that were open yesterday.

No more teasing here's the finish...


Old Testament Ornaments
designed by Mary Beale
Christmas Traditions by Leisure Arts
fabric: 32ct "staci-dyed" linen
fibers: DMC
(more info about the book in yesterday's post)



And here's a couple pics from my window. These were taken yesterday afternoon and it's been snowing ever since. If you click on them, you might be able to make out the flakes falling...big fluffy ones!



Thanks for coming by my snow-filled neck of the woods! Wishing you a cozy day :)

What a cute stitch! I'm definitely going to have to keep my eyes peeled for that book :)

And that is A LOT of snow!! Crazy :)

Gayle said...

Wow, definitely a day to stay cuddled up with something hot to drink and some stitching nearby. It looks so beautiful but I'm happy I don't have to deal with it. Thanks for sharing the pictures.

Annie said...

What a cute ornament...though I'm a little confused what Adam & Eve have to do with Christmas! :D

Loraine said...

Oh my Goodness that is a lot of snow! I hope that we are going to avoid a big snow storm like that for at least another month! Cute design. I love Adam and Eve things.

Sadie said...

Lovely finish Staci, I like the little apple on the back too :-)
I clicked and I saw the big fluffy flakes. Oh my goodness! Sounds like a hot chocolate kinda day to me.

Kim B said...

Great finish Staci! And that snow looks chilly!!

Gaynor said...

Wow...it looks so pretty. We rarely get that much snow. Hope your cupboards are well stocked. Snow is much nicer when you dont have to go out in it!

Julie said...

Loving the ornaments, i've not seen these before.

Stay nice and warm and cosy, all those lovely socks will keep you feet nice and warm!

PJ day, snow and get to stay home all day?! Where do I sigh up?! The snow photos are beautiful. I think it's just so magical...we never get snow here. It's at least a 4 hour drive for snow. Wonderful finish too!

doris said...

Hooray for a snow day. I'm loving it!

Love the A & E ornament.

Irene said...

Cute finish ! WOW I would stay curled up in my PJ's with my stitching too !!

Paula C. said...

I love pajama day! We are getting our first light snow. I am pretty sure that ours will melt before noon though.

Deb said...

Oh, the snow is so pretty, but please keep it in your part of the country. I think we're suppose to get an inch or two or rain from that system.

And now I'm going to have to look for that book. I love A&E pieces, so I just have to lay my hands on it. Love it!

Tanya said...

How beautiful - enjoy that snow!!

Tracey said...

Your finish looks great, and what beautiful snow!! I would just settle for cold temps here- it's supposed to be in the 80's on Saturday or Sunday! Blah!

Nancy said...

I love your ornament! What a clever design, and your stitching is as beautiful as always!

The snow is gorgeous, but I can't believe you have that much before Halloween.

Ranae said...

Cute Adam and Eve finish, love the apple border.
The snow looks so beautfiul, maybe not to you though, I love it!
It's a great day to stay in and stitch

Lois said...

Great finish Staci! That snow is lovely to look at but it definitely makes for a day to stay inside and stitch.

Lainey said...

Karen said...

Very cute! Need to look to see if I have this one.

Suzie said...

What a cute and colorful pattern! Your stitching is lovely!!

And an excellent day to stay in and stitch some more!

I had heard about all of the snow! Stay in, and stay warm!

Shari said...

And oh my!!!!!! That is a lot of snow!!!! I wonder how long before we end up with some of it!!!

Jan said...

What an adorable ornament.

And OMG! Can I move in with you so I can enjoy the snow!?

Brigitte said...

The Mary Beale ornament is beautiful.
I hope that you were enjoying your snow day.

Michele B. said...

As always you pick neat projects - how will you finish it? The peek out your window makes me long for snow (I know, I'm crazy). Like Tanya says - stay cozy and stitch!

dixiesamplar said...

Love the ornament! If I can ever get out form under the pile of Halloween stitching I have going I hope to actually get some Christmas pieces done myself...

Those are some beautiful pictures of the snow fall...but, I would be happy to keep them in the picture. Being a native southern girl, I can't handle the cold...but, I do love a fresh snow-fall.

Enjoy your time off!

HAPPY STITCHIN'

Very nice! And the view outside your window is pretty doggong stunning too! Those dishcloths are so nice....I used to knit those myself, and I haven't in ages....

Michelle said...

Oh I just love your A&E piece!!! I am crying that there are no copies of that book left to be had. I really want to stitch that little cutie up. Love yours. Oh, and the snow picture - wow. Snuggle up!
