What I Ate on a Snow Day: Scrambled Eggs with Spinach and Cheddar Cheese

I'm not an egg eater but this was excellent.  Even the kid said she would eat it again and she hates veggies and cheese.

All snowed in

It snowed here in NJ on Wednesday. This was storm number seven and another is on the way.  Work and the kid's school were closed Thursday.  Friday, the kid was under the weather and the roads were bad.  Saturday, I couldn't get to class which sucks because I hate programming and need to be there as much as I can to retain it.  These snowstorms are getting to me...

 Ice on the front steps

 Snow labyrinth in the neighborhood
 Wall of snow
 View out of front door Thursday morning
 My neighbor's sons come out and shovel the stairs and walk.
 Snow at the back door.

AAACK and its only January!!!

What I'm Working On: Crocheted Flowers

Nicky Epstein's Crocheted Flowers

I actually bought this book a few years ago. I never used it because I didn't have the correct hooks for the gauges. I recently decided to throw that thought out the window and play around a bit.

Well Nicky said nothing about hair fancies but I think these flowers are perfect for this.  I'm still prototyping but these should be available in the shop next month.

Happy 2011, Everyone!

I know I've been gone a minute. This last year of grad school has been taking up all my time but I'm slowly making my way back into the crafting world. I've been buried under yarn and paper and projects the past few weeks and I'll be sharing what I'm working on soon.

I hope the new year is treating you well!!!
