Let it snow ...Let it snow... Let it snow...

Yes, my dear friends its been snowing here non-stop since yesterday and we are grounded in the house... This afternoon we walked to New Seasons to get lunch and get out of the house for a little while, itwas soooo cold but soooo prety outside.

I worked, cleaned, did laundry and of course crochet and knit ... what else is there to do when snow ...and snow some more ...and snow some more...

Everything is so pretty and white...

It's my birthday tomorrow and I think for sure it will be an inside kind of birthday...
Knitting, cooking, crocheting and spending time with my family... what else could I possibly want? I will be very happy with relaxing and enjoying my calm day at home.

I have been working on my SIL's blanket and have finished this cowl you will see here... a simple double crochet cowl in navy and winter white, made with Lion Brand bulky yarn with size 10mm hook. So quick and easy I cannot even begin to tell you...I started and finished last night.

Lots of plans to do a lot more of relaxing, knitting and crocheting...

Before I go just wanted to show you a little friend I had visiting me all day on my balcony today ...he/she was there all day ... I kept putting food and bread outside and he/she kept coming back to visit me ... such a gift... :)

Thanks for stoping by and I hope you are staying warm wherever you are ...we are freezing here and it looks like we are in for a really cold and snowy kind of weekend,

Have a wonderful weekend my dear friends :)


  1. Hi Taci! I almost walked to New Seasons tonight but changed my mind when I heard the wind howling outside. It's STILL snowing. I don't think I've ever seen more than a few odd little flakes in Portland. This is crazy! It will definitely be a snowed in weekend.
    Let me be one of the first to tell you HaPpY bIrThDaY my dear friend. I have been very blessed to have you in my life and I know everyone you meet feels the same. You have such a sweet spirit. I hope you are gifted with many more years to share with all of us and that your year to come is as wonderful as you are. I'm sending you much love Taci.
    Blessings always,

  2. That is a beautiful cowl. I almost took a walk to new Seasons tonight until I realized just how cold that wind is! Brrrr! I decided to stay inside. Let me be one of the first to wish you a HaPpY bIrThDay! I hope you have a wonderful day and a blessed year to come. You are such a lovely spirit who always puts others first. You deserve to have your day go exactly as you want it to tomorrow. Enjoy!

  3. That is nice of you to feed the little birdie.. a new friend. You may have saved it's life! Your cowl is gorgeous.. you sure can work fast! I started a new little hat for our son's friends new baby born just a few days ago. I'm anxious to begin on my red shawl! Enjoy your family weekend and...

  6. Happy Birthday to you darling, wonderful, delightful Taci! I wish I was there to give you a giant birthday hug. I hope you have a fantastic day and your family celebrates the wonderful person you are. You asked about my cowl (by the way I love yours). I used 200 yards of yarn, size 10 1/2 circulars. Cast on 100 stitches (joined to knit in the round), made a 5 stitch by 5 sticth ribbing for 2 1/2 inches, knit in stockinette for 7 in, 5 by 5 rib for 2 1/2 inch and cast off. Easy. I'd love to see yours.

  7. Love snow! Wish we could get some,even just a little! :) Happy, Happy Birthday Sweet friend! Enjoy your day!

  8. Many Happy Returns Taci. Have a super birthday. The cowl is so lovely. Hugs Anne x

  9. A little birdie (Betsy) mentioned it's your birthday today. Happy, Happy Birthday! Enjoy the snow!

  10. Happy Birthday Taci, and I hope your day brings many blessings your way! Your cowl is looking so bright and cosy, and how quickly you worked it up! What a sweet little bird, I bet he enjoyed all the lovely little titbits you supplies him with. Hugs, Joy

  11. Hope you are having a wonderful Happy Birthday, Taci!!!! I especially love the color of your new cowl and your little bird friend is so sweet and I am sure is grateful for the shelter of your deck and the food you are providing. I am glad you were able to walk to New Seasons, but can be warm and cozy inside celebrating your birthday along with all of us around you who are appreciate that you were born :) xx
