A blog trying to focus on all the nice things in life, those moments when everything turns out right. Finding the perfect fabric for that chart you love, the ideal sampler quote, just the right picture in all the 1000s of magazines you own. Meeting people who share your interests and obsessions and totally understand why you NEED that chart when you already have enough to last until you're 104
The snow part of the title refers to the Beast from the East which caused widespread travel chaos and school closures in the last days of February and first days of March.
On the plus side I got to use some new colours in my Temperature SAL and some more snow beads! The blue and purples represent temperatures between 2 degrees and zero degrees Celsius. The pinkypurple represents the day when the High Temperature was only minus 2 degrees (28 degrees F).

Finally, don't forget the Easter Blog Hop. If you would like to take part this year, just leave a comment here. The week before Easter I will send you a letter of the alphabet which will form part of the mystery phrase. On Good Friday you will post that letter along with a photo of something seasonal that you have stitched (could be Easter or Spring or just something cheerful and sunny or floral). We all hop around like little bunnies to find the Mystery Phrase!
