Latest weather & THANK GOD IT'S FRIDAY

Image
Just thought I would share our latest weather.  AAARRRGGGG! If you've been around a while, you know I love Alaska. I just love it ALOT MORE in the summer;~) Keep in mind that we had NO snow on the ground when I went to bed last night.
Not because it had melted, mind you. It has been in the single digits or minus for the last week. No. We didn't have any snow because it blows away almost as soon as it stops coming down. In our neck of the woods in the winter the wind BLOWS.
So...when I got up and looked out the window this morning we had  about 10" of new snow, by the time I got home from work the snow was trying to blow  up over the hood of my FULL SIZE Tahoe as I was coming up the drive way. Honey estimates about 15" so far and it's still snowing like crazy. They predict another 4" before it "tapers off" tonight. I'm just very thankful that I don't have to drive anywhere for the  next two days, today was horrible. On the other hand Honey is quite excite…

some new things

I have accomplished a few crafty things in the last few weeks, just haven't had much chance to post cuz Honey has recently found a "Snow Machine Forum". Alot of chatting about and photos of snow machine  (or in most parts of the country - snowmobile) adventures. So he has been spending a bit more time on the computer than he used to, which means I spend less☺ The good part - more crafty accomplishments. The bad part - less show and tell. I was really getting in a funk about winter and I was crocheting  neckwarmers and wristwarmers like mad, so I decided maybe I should stop the winter wear for a while and think summer. I found this pattern for a summer "Straw Hat" and knew it would  be perfect for my sister.  She loved it so much she sent me a picture☺ Isn't she cute?  I want her hair. I also found a pattern for a bag that looked cool First let me say, I didn't think it would be so hard to take a picture of a bag.

This was my experiment so I followed the pattern exactly …
