Well the snow has certainly arrived here. Good or bad? Well if you have to slip and slide yourself to work or have a "meet" with a best buddy cancelled, well that is bad. However, if you want a good excuse to stay in, keep warm and grab your crochet hook then that is very good!
The garden looks like this
DH has been out clearing some of the paths and the drive.
Not as many Goldfinches as in previous years but this one was filling his boots yesterday!
A chunky Chaffinch was finding plenty to eat
and one of our resident Robins has realised you need to adapt and to learn if you want to get some of the best food.
Whilst the Thrush knows what he likes and, luckily for him, the blackbirds haven't eaten all the berries.
I've been making progress on my new ripple.
What do you think of the colour combinations? I think I quite like it.
A warm welcome to my new followers Barbara of "Two Birdies and a B", I will be popping over to your blog and also to Jennifer of Thistlebear blog. I was visiting Jennifer (and I recommend you do too) and was reminded that I had forgotten to photograph my large Granny square, probably because as soon as I finished it DH claimed it for the back of his chair.
The photo doesn't really do it justice, it needed better light but if you are familiar with Stylecraft Special DK then I think you will recognise most of the colours.
I know some of you have been out enjoying the snow, you've been walking, you've been building snowmen and you have been sledging, there have been wonderful happy photos. I hope you continue to have fun but stay safe and keep warm.
Until the next time.
