Friday the 13th Fun!

Started my day seeing this;

So far DH has cleared off the carport twice! We’ve had 14 inches since 2:00 this morning and it’s still coming down. Winter has arrived in full force. Update: DH did it 2 more times; I’ve done it once! Winter is here! ❄️⛄️❄️

My morning is being spent getting caught up with emails, reading blogs and doing the necessary household chores. I had to go to town yesterday to pick up DH’s prescriptions so I stocked up on some groceries to be ready for the possibility of being snowed in. Am I ever glad I did!

I have several quilt projects on the go right now (no surprise there 😉) but I’m thinking I need to find my knitting or crocheting or some hand stitching work in case the power goes out. We often have 6 -8 hour outages so it’s time to be ready.

I know I have socks on the needles as well as a shawl. It seems to me I have a scarf started for a crochet pattern. It’s funny but the arrival of snow always has me wanting to play with wool as well as fabric.

I think the need to play with wool has something to do with the snuggly warmth you only get from wool; slippers, socks, shawls, sweaters, etc.

My latest finish; felted slippers. 😄

Perhaps it’s time to start Shine by Elizabeth Eastmond? I have fabrics I have been saving to do a kaleidoscope quilt but this lovely pattern has me intrigued. 😉. I’ve not done much in the way of hand piecing so I think it’s time to challenge myself with another new project for this crazy year 😉

Now I just need to find the fabric bin I put away. 🤔. Back to the storage room I go as soon as I finish my Nanaimo Bars. DH has a voracious sweet tooth so I thought I would/should reward all his hard work shovelling snow with a sweet, chocolatey treat; one of his favourites!

My version of these sweet morsels is a bit different; I use cream cheese instead of butter for the middle layer 😋

What are you doing for fun on this Friday the 13th?

Thanks for stopping by! I really appreciate your visits and comments and love it when you follow me! 😄 Carol

I have been fondling fabric and creating things with fabric and fiber for as long as I can remember. My children had homemade clothes, blankets, canning and quilts most of their lives. Now I create goodies to share! Hope you enjoy viewing them as much as I enjoy making them! When I am not creating with fiber or fabric I keep busy with Dear Heart, kids, grandkids, great grandkids.

    1. Hi Gail. I’ve got your share of snow here. I’m just heading back out to shovel the carport again. I think after dinner it just might be sitting and knitting time and avoiding the Nanaimo Bars 😄

  1. Holy moly, Carol! That’s a lot of snow. It looks pretty but you can keep it for now. I’m in no rush for that whole winter thing. Your chocolate bars look delicious! Now that’s the kind of squirrel I could invite in. HAHA! ~smile~ Roseanne

    1. Hi Roseanne. It was a lot of heavy wet snow! Took me an hour to shovel the walkway in to the Guild this morning, but we had fun. 😉. The bars were a nice treat and the squirrels are having fun chasing me. 😉

  2. So much snow! We rarely get more than a dusting. I do miss the higher volume snows of Minnesota but I don’t miss winter that feels like it lasts forever! Your sweet treats look delicious! Hope you can find some fun hand sewing for potential power outages!
