This past week we participated in “Snowpocalypse 2011. Although we didn’t get hit as hard as many did, we did have about 7 inches of snow, 6 foot high drifts, and were snowed in for two days. We had plenty of warning and were well prepared with plenty of food, water and firewood. We all kept busy with our hobbies and games and I even learned a few new things about my husband…..
I now know why Greg is such a good electrician. He spent his snow days sorting the Legos he brought back from his mom’s house a few weeks ago. He says this is what he did as a kid. Hmmm……we just sorted by kinds of blocks, dumped into a pail. This is how Greg sorts:
I joined up in a “mug rug” swap, and here’s what I made for my partner:
Lastly I made this purse from the batik jelly roll I had purchased to make the mug rugs. I’m not a huge batik fan, but I do love the bright colors!
Overall it turned out to be a very productive winter “snowcation”!
