Watching the Snow Channel this morning.........

Dust of Snow
by Robert Frost
The way a crow
Shook down on me
The dust of snow
From a Hemlock tree.
Has given my heart
A change of mood
And saved some part
Of a day I had rued.




This piece is by Bent Creek designs. I stitched this as a kit, shortly after moving to the North Georgia Mountains and loving the first snow. I had the frame special ordered from The Dogwood Patch and I put it out every winter to remember our little house in the woods during that first snow here.
This morning it's cloudy and we saw one snow flake,
a random thing in the air
as fluttery as it alone can be,
it's reminder was so awesome to me,
that winter has it's darkness and cold,
but bright little snow flakes enlighten the old!

So, I have to share my morning treat,
as I rummage through my pantry sweet,

Perked some coffee so strong and hot




And added chocolate,
2 tablespoons and then stopped



I then added a frosty topping
of off brand whipped cream
To make it a snowey dream

My own cafe mocha I did make, I did
to sit and enjoy the snow pics on TV.
Hope you are building lots of snowmen
and sending it down South so at least if it's gray,
it would be a snowey, white day.
Fiddle De Dee,
Jennifer

  1. lovely pics Jennifer I see you have some Yorktowne dishes :) I collect the Folk Art. Your stitchery is quite lovely in the round frame, you are very talented. I used to cross stitch samplers from Jeremiah Junction, wish I could get back into the mode, I've been in a funk..
    Stay warm!

  3. Thanks to all,
    Andy, yes I love Yorktowne, I've had those dishes for 20 + years and from time to time add a few pieces.
    Oh I hope you feel better, maybe you could stitch some snowflakes like me and it will help your mood....but I do understand those days......

    Thanks, Linda!
    I bet we all get to look at alot of pics from all our stitchers that live in and near New England and the Washington area. I'm watching TV today and awed at pics of The White House and the depth of the snow there.

  8. Hi Jennifer! It has been snowing here in Virginia Beach almost two hours now, and it is beginning to stick. I got all my errands done and am ready to settle in for the rest of the weekend. The ONLY thing I have not been able to do, again and again, due to one thing or another, is my Christmas RETURNS!! By now, their value is probably insulting!! Sigh..

    You are a Poet, too! So many talents!

    Hugs.

  10. The snow has finally stopped here. I shoveled for three hours, now hubby can get in the driveway when he gets home - barely......

    More snow expected mid-week. I definitely feel like I am in a snowglobe!
