SNOW!!! and other ramblings!

We woke up to snow this morning! I would like to know what happened to fall. We had about 4 days of fall and then this. Don't get me wrong, I love snow! But I need all four seasons to be happy. It has been snowing on and off for the last 5 hours and the sky looks like it could snow for many more!

Friday was the Powder Puff game for homecoming. Senior girls play Junior girls in flag football. Hannah was a running back. Here she is modelling her outfit for me.

Here she is running the ball. I think she got 20 yards this time.

For the first time in 20 years, the Senior girls lost. The final score was 6 -0. Here they are hamming it up for the parents with cameras.

Here is Hannah with her friend, Joe. Joe was head coach of the Seniors.

Here is Hannah with her friend, Derrik. He was one of the cheerleaders. They were quite entertaining. Hannah spent quite a bit of time when she wasn't in the game, coaching the guys in cheers.

Here is Hannah and her friends, Kenzie and Mallory. These 3 have gone to school together since kindergarten!

During my mandatory workshops for school this past Thursday and Friday, I started tatting and edging from my all-time favorite book. The workshop was so boring, and I can't sit that long without doing something, and tatting is very portable.
Here is the edging I am working on. I wish I would have started it in a different color though. I am almost out of the antique thread I am using and haven't seen this color at the thrift stores since I got this one.

The thread is a Coates and Clark, in a variegated turquoise. I will have to think of something to put it on.
I hope everyone has a great week ahead. Have a great day today!


  1. Aaak! You are killing me with the snow! I'm blog hopping and see SNOW! I live in Arizona and we just don't see this very often. Oh how I miss it.

    My Grandmother is going to give me her tatting bobbin! I really want to try it. Your edging is amazing! I really find tatting so interesting and it it on my list of things to learn. (I seem to be a collector of hobbies, and this fits perfectly into my collection.)

    Have you been tatting long? Just beautiful!


  2. Wow - the snow is unbelievable! Love your tatting, Donnelly!
