A FOUR letter word that I am sick and tired of and some creativity


Did that title grab your attention? Probably not, because I know my peeps in blog land are SMART,
but I am sick and tired of SNOW!  I know that many of you are as well. We have had more than our
 fair share this year and it isn't even the end of January. We won't even talk about how bitter
 cold it is also. ugh!

So...what does a girl do when she is stuck inside? She makes warm and cozy pillows. I picked up a few
sweaters at the Goodwill several days ago specifically to make sweaters so I got my sewing vibe on
this week. lol.


I really do like how this one turned out. I did find out while making these that sweater fabric is kinda
 *stretchhhhhhhy*
so you have to watch what you are doing. I think a regular fabric backing would help next time.


I had the sweater sleeves left over after making the pillow so I also made a wine cozy.
{I could have made two , but only made one for now}

{or sparking juice cozies whatever you desire}


This is my second pillow. I left the end open that was originally the bottom of the sweater and then I made three
rosette pins and pinned it closed.



The snow does look pretty, but I am sooooo over it. Way too much this year and way too cold also! ugh!


This is our main road {3/4 miles from where we live} that is usually heavily traveled. 


SNOW...SNOW...SNOW!


Tea anyone?? 


My frozen rain chain


Home sweet home...this was taken before we got even more snow along with huge drifts.




I put on face book today that I have an offer for today only and I will extend that to my blogger friends
as well. I am giving away all the snow that will fit in your vehicle. First come first serve,  so get here fast!
Whatever is not gone tonight is headed to the Goodwill store! HAHA!

Stay warm~

Love your pillows, Sandi! I tried doing pillows out of sweaters, too, once and found the stretch drove me crazy. Love the cozies out of the sleeves, too. I'm with you ~ I'm done with this snow! I'm desperate for an early Spring.

Oh I am feeling cold just looking at your beautiful scenery. Here in Houston we are expecting a storm. Of course nothing like what you have. It is expected to shut down businesses and schools. I don't plan on going to work. Will stay nice and warm in my home. Try to stay warm.

I would have thought you would like the world around you all white and lovely. I painted today, a winter scene, I could have used your photo, with your lovely home. What inspiration. Stay warm.

You probably think I am crazy but, I want snow, I miss it. We had a tiny bit here last week but that is all. Your pillows are so pretty.
I love your pictures, especially with your pretty home and yard of snow

So many people are so tired of the snow. We haven't gotten a flake! Your pictures are so pretty.

I will say "No thanks" to the offer of snow. But just to rub things in, I should let you know that we are experiencing unusually high, sunny temperatures this winter. It has been like spring right the way through from fall. Just sayin'
lol
*Smiles* and Hugs

We're getting plenty of snow here right now, so thank you for your generous offer, LOL! I love your country roads photos - beautiful! And the pillows are cozy-wonderful.

Kathy said...

Although your snow pictures are lovely, I am so over it. Snow, snow, snow. And I LIKE snow. But too much of anything, you know? The cold is even worse than the snow. But... there's a warming trend coming next week so maybe most of this will be gone soon.
