Mittens...Momentarily


Oh but I am dithering around.  Working on that,  then on this, then on something else entirely.  "Fuzzy Mitten" by Fanci That is the latest stitch to catch my eye.  And, as it turns out to have been very seasonal too! 

Thursday morning from 7:30am-10:00am we had snow showers.
Long enough, and hard enough that it began to accumulate on the trees...

...and on the ground.

Just a dusting of snow. 
Enough to momentarily have a Winter Wonderland.

But not enough to cause harm to birds or other critters.

I do like how it delineated the structure of both deciduous and coniferous trees.

And it made a charming backdrop.

Reason enough to keep the outdoor Christmas lights up for a while longer!

Lovely snow photos Beth. We're forecast to have some of the dreaded white stuff this weekend and early next week.

that snow looks so good better than this prolonged heatwave that has hit Australia.

& I agree with Mouse - well done your sister :)

I'm starting at the top--most recent posts--behind as usual. Gosh the snow looks beautiful!! You have a knack for taking great pictures! We are going to be in the high 60's to 70ish this weekend. Can you believe it??? Hugs!

I must admit, you make the snow look lovely. No snow here in Illinois, but that's fine with me.

Mittens are a great project! I loved doing the JBW mittens last winter. Your snow is so pretty. We had a very wet snow in Dec. and it broke branches from some of our shrubs! It didn't last long but did considerable damage.

Beautiful photos! I am so jealous of your snow. It was in the 70's here today. Pray for just one snow for us here in Wayne County NC. That's all I want! :)

Snow is so pretty in the countryside. We are meant to be getting some in the UK this weekend.
