winter baby

Yes, I am completely snowed under. It is impossible to describe how awful it is because really, it looks kinda pretty, right?


But we are all dealing with freezing cold temps, ice dams and leaking roofs, terrible roads and sidewalks, interspersed with perfect ones like this (ours, thank you Ben!). No parking anywhere, traffic jams, broken down mass transit. Giant snowdrifts that make every corner, whether you are driving or walking across the street, a potentially deadly blind spot. Coming up next, flooding. Everybody is stressed and cranky. I can’t wait until spring but it is going to be a while yet.

That’s our car in the driveway.


But, I am very thankful that I work at home. And I have gotten some things done. I have 2 babies to show you (another tomorrow), that I put together in December but never got around to finishing. Hello Baby!

bird baby 2

I’ll be overwhelming you with posts after my silence in January. I just finished this second bird baby for my pattern. But, I’m looking back at the January posts and looking at what I have finished and sitting in front of me and I can see that I am way behind! So today- bird baby, inspired by the zillions of sparrows that spend their days in the shrubbery around my house. Sometimes when I go out the door, a cloud of birds takes to the air!
