A Winter's Day

design by Buttermilk Basin
We are in the midst of a winter storm here in Chicago. If it was snow, I would be celebrating as we have had less than 2 inches of snow so far this year. Instead it is ice and freezing rain. I hate ice. Falling down a flight of concrete stairs on the ice almost two decades ago has left me with a lasting fear of ice.
So I have stayed inside all day cooking, baking and doing laundry.
I thought these two recent finishes were appropriate for today.

This is a scissor fob that I made for a friend's 50th birthday. I gave it to her this weekend.
 I think that she liked it :)
I have been talking for several posts about doing another giveaway as I haven't had one in quite some time. I'm finishing it up today. Will take some photos and will post it this week.
So stay tuned...
"So teach us to number our days,
That we may gain a heart of wisdom."
~Psalm 90:12
Blessings, Patti

lovely snowy things for this time of year! I have 6" of ice frozen solid in our driveway, hoping it will melt and run off before the hill freezes again later this week. looking forward to your giveaway!

Hi Patti,
Love the winter finishes! I love anything with snowflakes on it!
We got the northern edge of this storm with freezing something or other and then this afternoon it turned to snow. I feel your fear of ice as well!
Stay safe and snuggly inside and keep more beautiful finishes coming!
