Let it Snow, let it snow.......

LET IT SNOW and it is supposed to do just that, starting tonite after midnight ,we're to get around 6 in. by tomorrow afternoon ~ YIKES!  Just today it got up to 52* and was warmer than it's been in quite awhile.  I think it's sort of funny how everyone in blogland likes to mention the weather, but also it's quite interesting to find out about the weather from all over the country.  We are so used to living in our own little world sometimes and it's nice to know how other parts of the world are doing, don'tcha think?
 I still have my snowmen decor out, mostly on our front porch.  I don't put them out until AFTER Christmas, b/c most of you know that I have so many gingerbread items, I just don't have room for both! LOL
 This is the Decor Mesh that we used to make our snowmen during our last craft nite at my church back in Nov.  We've been meeting every other month and so far we've learned something new each time we meet.  (wish I'd remember to take pics of some of the other's snowmen, they were all different).  You can't really tell in the pic, but his red earmuffs are really sparkly in real life.
 This Fri. nite I volunteered(I don't know whatever possessed me) to teach a class on WOOL APPLIQUE.   So far 15 gals have signed up!!  I thought there'd be just a handful, so I've been very busy cutting out all the pieces to a kit that we're gonna make for Valentine's Day.  I designed a cute little penny rug w/hearts (that I'll show next time) and had to tweak and tweak till I got it just right, so I hope/pray they all like what I came up with.  I haven't taught a craft class in yrs.  I just hope I don't get too nervous and forget anything.
 Please don't notice that we still have quite a few leaves in our yard! Hubby likes to use the leaf blower on them and when he's not looking, Mr. Wind likes to push/shove them back into our flower bed/yard.

 This last pic says it all ~ it has been a bit shall we say, BREEZY lately!  LOL  So hang on to your hats everyone who lives near Eastern Ky.   You are in for some more SNOW and wind!!  Stay warm!!

Your snowmen are just wonderful but seeing the leaves it looks like autumn still! Hope you keep safe out in the snow!
