Twenty on the 20th

The official tally from Snowpocalypse 2012 in our county was 20 inches!

This was deck view yesterday, after it had finally stopped snowing.

It was 9 degrees when I woke up this morning, but the sun is shining brightly and it really does look like a winter wonderland!

Despite blizzard conditions, the mail still came through on Thursday and brought with it a squishy containing these beautiful fat quarters from Michelle.

It was definitely a day brightener!  I just love those rich colors and fun prints.

Yesterday was the day to finish my Christmas crafting.  

I got the last of the pin-up guy/girl pillowcases done—and wrapped before I thought to take a photo.  Then I put one last Christmas pillowcase together just for me.

I made candy sleighs using this tutorial, which I first saw when Thea made them—thanks for the great idea!

Somehow I seem to have missed the bottom row of four Hershey miniatures, but they still came out cute.  These will be for nieces and nephews.

It was the winter solstice yesterday, and I am so happy the days will be getting longer, minute by minute, from here!

Holy crap! You got more than we did...the trees look so beautiful with it all. I want one of those sleighs too ;)

Those sleighs are super cute! Pinning that for next year!

Love your new fabrics! What a sweet gift from a very sweet lady!

I LOVE the Christmas fabric you used on your pillowcase.

And finally, snow. As I mentioned, we got some early in the week, this week, Sunday and Monday. I'm wondering now if our storm passed your way or if your storm will head this way and we will get dumped on again. Either way, it is too cold for me. Also, I did a little happy dance yesterday. Hooray! We've passed the winter solstice!

love your candy sleighs. They turned out great! I didn't even think of using something different for the base. The fabric for the pillowcase is great. and the snow. I miss the snow .. sort of.

What a great way to cope with a snowstorm, fabric therapy and chocolate.

We only got about half that much snow, more's the pity - - - but then we were only 1 degree this morning when I got up, so I guess we had you beat on THAT front.

The snow is gorgeous.
