#64 Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow...

Yep, the snow is officially here! It started yesterday about six in the evening and has continued ever since! Thankfully it is very tiny flakes falling but over the course of the night it has still added up to a fair amount!

SNOW!!! :D

 I always use the top of the post box to see how deep the snow is - as you can see it is a fair coverage!

Rather appropriate then that today in my mail box was this design by Pickle Barrel Designs waiting for me - isn't it so sweet?! :D


Nancy at Pickle Barrel is ever so friendly and will always go out of her way if there is a design you would like to get it to you - she also holds some great giveaways - the last one everyone won a prize!

I really encourage you to visit her blog and take a look for yourself. They also have a website which can be found at http://www.picklebarreldesigns.com/


In other news, I am now at 100 followers! Yay! I will have a think about the giveaway and launch it soon - I don't want it to get lost in all this Grow Your Blog party madness so will hold off for a few days (that also gives me time to think what I am going to give!)

Have a great weekend everyone, I will be back tomorrow with my IHSW progress.

    1. Thanks Rita, we don't get it too often here, at least not proper snow. Which is why I think I get so excited when we do :D hehe. Luckily I had nowhere I had to be for the past three days so that was lucky :)

      I'm sorry to hear you had no power :( To make up for it you must join the IHSW next month :D

      Thank you for my birthday wishes :)

      Have a great Sunday my dear xxx

    1. Haha thank you Anne :) There is something about snow, I don't know what it is everyone is more friendly to one another when you are walking round and strangers talk to each other and as you say everything looks so pretty :)

  11. A very appropriate chart to stitch - we've missed the snow where we live :( I'm always envious of those that do get it.
