I have looked at a lot of blogs in the last couple of days, many of them have pictures of the snow storm that hit the East Coast. It was a big event; I took some photos too, but I'm not going to share them today. Let me tell you a little about the snow storm before I move on. We ended up with 19 inches of the white stuff. Most people would say...ugggh...but I love snow, my response is usually yippeeee! It took us several hours to dig out, even with a snow blower. I feel for those who had to dig out the old fashioned way, with a large snow shovel and a strong back. I bet there were a lot of sore backs after this storm.
When it snows, I usually start baking or I pull out a favorite soup recipe. This time I pulled out my sewing machine. I had cut these little meeces out over a month ago. I was going to do them for an ornament exchange but elected to do something else because of time constraints. These little guys are a design by Old Road Primitives, they are part of the "I'll be back: Frosty the snowman hat" pattern. When I received the pattern, the little mouse on the hat made me think of an ornament. I hope to make the hat before I put all my winter crafting stuff away.
BTW, the word "meeces is actually in the dictionary. You can find it at dictionary.com.
I don’t know where the coffee went this morning but the pot went dry fast. Maybe it’s the late night I had last night and I needed the extra “oomph” today. I wrote two posts and worked on the meeces until after midnight. So, don’t stop here, check out the peanut brittle recipe below.
