Project 13 - a bloom amid the snow

This little lace bag has proven the perfect New Year project keeping me quite entertained during the busy return to work and now the quiet day at home due to weather.

The weatherman predicted it well and snow began last night, lovely soft benign snow to precede the freezing rain and sleet that followed.

Outgoing Governor declared a state of emergency and canceled all of today's nonessential Inaugural activities. [This will not affect me. grin]

Black are my steps on silver sod;
Thick blows my frosty breath abroad;
And tree and house, and hill and lake,
Are frosted like a wedding cake.

Robert Louis Stevenson

We had no snow but I had icicles hanging from my bird feeders. It was so pretty. By noon or so everything had icicles, even the pecan trees. Wish it was snow! (spelling icicles has been an all day battle with my computers!)

Your snow moved on to us hours later. We've enjoyed being snowed in. Looks like we'll have at least 3 snow days at home.
