**At the foot of Round Mountain, tucked in among the graceful Maples, sits a cozy brown house, smoke billows from the chimney 8 months out of the year, a river rambles nearby, sheep & Cows graze in the meadows and turkey's forage nearby. Here you will find me...surrounded by wool & cotton threads, hoops & needles on my lap & sketchpads scattered about.**

~In My Hoop~

Good snowy afternoon to you...and OH, what a beautiful snow filled one it is.  They are saying two feet of snow is possible!  While the storm begins to intensify outside, inside I am delighting in the coziness.  I am just about to sit down and begin work on a new design.  I am awaiting the arrival of my larger order of floss, so I am lacking a few colors for it, but until then, I shall outline everything and work with the gorgeous colors you see here.  The spicy orange is one of my FAVORITES.  Isn't it lovely :)

I'm off now to make a big old mug of cocoa & begin my punching.  A bit later I am going to make a batch of vanilla cupcakes with vanilla bean buttercream frosting..mmm, perfect on this snowy day.

Stay safe & warm in the storm ~ ♥Doreen

I'm punching a bird at the moment as well, my Friend ~
Happily by the wood stove!
Keep warm!
