Winter Storm Jonas

Wow, it’s my turn again?!

I don’t know about you, but we got A LOT of snow this weekend! We closed the office early on Friday, because it was snowing so hard! I believe my yard has almost a foot, in total. My husband, Neal, and I realized Saturday morning, that we were completely out of breakfast food, and we had 3 teenage boys to feed! That meant a trek to Walmart…YIKES! Here are some pictures of our adventure.

I-77 between Williamstown, WV and Marietta, OH

The boys even made themselves a tunnel with the giant mound of snow they shoveled from the driveway! Sorry I forgot to get a picture of that!

The best part about being snowed in, is family time!! Friday night we had dinner at my parents’ house…leftovers! Saturday night we ate there, too…Soup-a-Palooza! I made potato soup successfully for the first time, and my mom made her famous white chicken chili! YUM!

Yesterday morning when I made it to the office, there was a package waiting for me from Kay Harmon, one of our awesome designers! It contained her projects for a couple upcoming issues, and a REALLY adorable sun dress for little Henley! Kay is just too much! THANK YOU!! I will post pictures of Henley wearing her new dress this summer!

One last thing...if you've submitted an email from the "Contact Us" page on our new website, you will get a response, I'm just really behind! Same goes for voice-mails! 

Until next time :)

Snow days.. and a pattern for Valentine's day!

January has been cold and snowy so far here in WV! Which makes me very happy... the more snow, the better! I wish we would get at least a foot! It's nice to be able to watch it fall while you're inside under a blanket - reading, watching movies, or stitching!

It snowed a good bit today. My 4 year old nephew, Julian, associates snow with being at my parents' cabin in the mountains. Each time he has been there they always have a lot of snow, so when it's snowing here at home he asks "Are we going to the cabin?" It's pretty cute :)

Valentine's day is coming up and we have a little throw back for you from our Spring 2013 issue. Kathy Cardiff's "Heart's and Vines" is a perfect little project to work on this month to have ready just in time. 

Spring 2013 is sold out in print, but you are able to purchase the digital version for only $6.99. If you only want this pattern, we are making it available for only $4.99 through Valentine's Day! Click here for the pattern!
