A Fine Day

 The snow was falling down so beautifully on Friday.  I awoke to the announcement of no school due to "inclement weather."  Oh dear!  The radio was also advising people to not get out on the roads unless they absolutely had to.  I had plans to go to Hobby Lobby for some shopping to make some pretty things.  So, what is a girl to do?  Put on her boots and gloves and head out!  I joked with someone that nothing stops a woman and her 40% off Hobby Lobby coupon.  Came home and turned on my little machine and began to stitch.
 The iPod was tuned to one of my most favorite Pandora stations.....
 I love Valentines Day.  It is fun to make things for people I care about.  This little tea towel is going to a dear friend back home who's favorite color is purple.  I miss her so much.  So, I decided that since she was on my heart, I would send some lovin to her mailbox from me.
 Outside my back door...the snow was still falling.....
 Fluffy kitty was taking a cat nap.......
 Our grand total as of this morning.  My very scientific way of measuring snow.  A quilting ruler.
My finished little project.

Hi Shann! LOL!!! I totally get the 40% Hobby Lobby Coupon!
Your friend will love her tea towel! There is something so cozy about sewing while it is snowing outside. I think it is one of my favorite things.

OK I wanted snow, but you can keep the 12 inches. :) Love the towel, even in purple.

Oh my 12 inches...I have heard we are in for some, don't know how much, but I hope it isn't that much.

You are a brave woman, Shann, amazing what a coupon will do.

Cute project, no doubt she will love it.
