Wintry Mix Day 2

Today we had another "wintry mix." This one is proving to be more significant. We are truly iced in and are wondering if we'll lose power. I got to the grocery store for wine and Ghiradelli chocolate chips before the storm came. Having used the Ivory Snow on Wednesday and having reserved the Borax (for snowflakes) for the next wintry mix which arrives on Monday night, we hauled out the sewing machine this afternoon.

The theme this afternoon was "bags with pockets." E made a bag to hold her favorite dog "snowball" and his little companion.

H made this snazzy bag out of a dress she found at the thrift shop. She cut off all the pockets and turned them into a bag.

We always have extra kids here on "wintry mix" days. This friend knew she'd be here for the long haul and arrived with everything from her down comforter to needle felting supplies. She made the bag on the left, complete with pockets and a SNAP closure--very snazzy.

I didn't get to make anything. I was on support services.

Sigh. I miss the deep Vermont snows--these wintry mixes are a lot of work! We ended the afternoon in the only proper way I know how on such a day. With tea and ghiradelli chocolate brownies.

Now the children are all settled into a movie and I am having a glass of wine by the fire. The ice is really beating on the windows, but we are warm and cozy. Hopefully we won't have to go out and hook up the generator. Happy Weekend!

My kind of day! Brownies and tea to top it off--oh yeah:-)

I'd give up our 70 degree day (isn't that obscene in February?) for a bit of the brownies and crafting fun. Loved day 1's ideas too... we may just make some snow people to remind us that it is winter!
