Some Stitch and a Snowy Sunday.

 I also made on of her Christmas Trees with round snowflakes and added a Crescent moon.
 Here is another of her snowman designs.
 Another one.
 And a head that was part of a pieced SNOW with the head to be the O and the rest pieced.
 I thought they looked cute in this Let It Snow box I got.
 My Buttermilk Basin Tree and Cheri's in the box.
 Then Cheri's in a Snowman basket.
 I woke up about 0630 on Sunday morning to see a dusting of snow in the courtyard.
 Then looking towards the river.
 Just before noon I went for a walk and saw snow and sleds on the Quay.
 One of two cross country skiers.  It was snowing during the walk.
 One of the many decorated condos along the Quay.
 Trees starting to be covered with snow.
 Five Robins in this tree.
  A bit closer look, you can see their red breast feathers are plumped up.
 Got a better picture of this one in another tree.
 Looking down the brick walkway with the snow coming down.
 These palms have been along the Quay since I moved here in 1988.
 Peeling Bark Maples looked pretty with the snow covering it.
 A view looking into my condo complex.
 Looking from the foyer across the now snow covered ice on our water feature towards the river.
 At about 3:30 I went for a second walk the snow carried on most of the day and it was blowing around with the wind.
 The cherry trees at the front looked very lacy covered with snow.
 Ice was forming in the river.
 One of the city maintenance workers with a John Deer mini bulldozer clearing the brick walkway.
 Snow was accumulating and we had between 4-6 inches.
 One of tugs out doing a job in this weather.
 The palms were getting very heavy with snow.
 One of the Peeling Bark Maples.
 This one looked so pretty and lacy.
I woke up about 6:30 to the sound of rain which was promised.  But there is another dusting of snow and we may get more but sunshine is expected by afternoon.  We will have to see how long it lasts.

I always enjoy walking along the quay marveling at the array of flowers and foliage during the spring and summer . It looks even more beautiful in the snow! Thank you for sharing your beautiful photos.

Love the pillows, all beautifully done. I got some boxes in that line, but mine have a different saying, I used them for smaller trees.
Looks like a great place to CC ski, hoping to do more of that, this year.

Your pillows look great. The snow looks pretty but I know it would be cold too. Keep warm! Regards, Nessie

What could be cuter than those primitive designs on ticking? Adorable!
