Winter Storm Draco

Here's a few pictures of what Draco left us. We got about 11 - 12 inches of snow in our area. Definitely going to be a white Christmas here. I plan on staying in with a cup of hot cocoa and read The Long Winter by Laura Ingalls Wilder, as that is tradition in our family each winter.

Making Ornaments

I thought these were so cute and found the idea for them here. I used old music for the stars in the small one and old book pages and punched snowflakes in the larger one.

Kids Hats

I made these hats for Riley and Miss M. The pattern for the Angry Bird hat can be found here and the Hello Kitty hat, here. For the Angry Bird I stitched on the felt pieces for his face and on the Hello Kitty hat I had to add on the eyes, nose, and whiskers myself.
