Snow Day

make a gif





Today's advent picture is a felty angel I made for a swap on ADO.


I sent her off to Denmark last week but have not heard anything yet.




We had lots more snow last night, so school was closed. I won't pretend to be at all upset about this, or that I did any work. Instead I went to Lewisham to get some wadding for my patchwork-not the new patchwork but the really old one I started and never finished (a cushion inspired by a vintage one I bought)-I have been working on it this week. I am quite excited about the quilting part and am nearly ready to start. I got a lovely grey velvet to do the back of the cushion with. The old cushion that inspired this one has a lovely faded and soft red velvet back.


I have also made my Christmas tree-well-improvised. More on that another day!


We had an inset day tomorrow anyway, and have received a message that we are to work from home. I should get quite a lot done hopefully, but still have time for a little walk.


Below are a few pictures from today's walk. There were buses and I did catch a couple, but they were not ones that went quite where I wanted them to so I did walk quite a bit. I get far more exercise when it snows!

I almost got a teaching degree. Still regretting not having those summers off and those snow days. Glad you know how to spend a snow day. No regrets and no working. Way to go. Still smiling about Cassie's reaction to that cold white stuff. So glad you shared the little movie.

And the advent calendar is just super unique!

I am so looking forward to seeing your patchwork!
What a novel Advent Calendar, fun.
I like that there were some buses, even though they were not going where you wanted them to.
Hope you have a fruitful day today.

Love your advent calendar. You certainly have had a lot of snow over there, I'm surprised you got outside at all.

Cassie by the window, keeping warm, clever cat.

Fan of our yearly advent calendars and loving your share on the snowy weather you're having there... here it's still sort of warm but I still managed to get a cold! :)

Meant 'Your' not 'Our' advent calendar!

You're getting so skilled with those animations! I love peeking behind your doors for the surprises (and with you, you really never know what to expect)!
