No, not the tatted kind, but a real blizzard yesterday! Twelve inches of snow by 11:30 a.m. The onslaught began promptly at 5 o'clock in the morning. It was like someone flipped a lightswitch. One minute, clear skies and the next you couldn't see more than three feet in front of you. I'd show you all some pictures, but there's nothing to see except a big square of white. Haha! Knowing I'd be snowed in, I stocked at the grocery store so I wanted for nothing. It was actually nice being snowed in, very peaceful and quiet, and I got done some things I have been putting off, such as cleaning and organizing my closets.
One of my neighbors has a beautiful Christmas lights display that I love to look at. Last night, he added candles to the window sills, which makes his home look very inviting. This inspired me to go through my books and big binders full of patterns. Off the shuttles last night came this:
The pattern for this lovely little candle is courtesy of Jane! I had a good time tatting it and the beadwork was good practice. There is an alternate version which uses brass rings that I really want to try. Maybe later today I'll head out to see if I can find some.
