Snow Days and Teddy Afghan



Snow and more snow!!! That is all I am experiencing right now. This is the view from my upper deck. On Tuesday afternoon I got up and measure the snow and it was just 6 inches.

So I decided to finally take down my final Christmas tree. I just loved having my Disney tree up. It made me smile so I decided to leave it up longer than usual. I spent the afternoon reading and stitching on my Teddy Bear Afghan. I did some shopping on Ebay! I won 3 auctions and didn't spend a dime of my own money!!!! Wondering how I did that??? I had $11.34 in Ebay bucks so I bought a Yard of fabric, 1 skein of DMC 939 and 1 sheet of stickers. I spent $11.33 and didn't spend a dime out of my own pocket!!
My monthly accomplishment for January was I did not buy any new stash! My goal is not to buy stash this year but to make a wish list and stitch what I have in stock. My expections are my monthly class with Mary from Ozark Samplers, Magazines since you can only get them at that one time and fibers/fabrics for projects in my stash that I want to stitch.
Wednesday I decided to go out and measure the snow again. As you can see, we have 9 inches of snow now and check out our grill! It has a really cute hat!! So I am off to stitch again. I spent the day stitching and reading again.

I finished my Teddy Afghan!!!....well...I finished all the letters. I still need to stitch the name and a Date of Birth but that will happen when the baby is born.
I decided NOT to stitch my Disney Ornament Afghan just yet. I have deleted it from my goals. I can't decide if I want to stitch it on an afghan or individual blocks and make a wall hanging....so until I can decide I am taking it off my list of things to be stitched!!!!

Congrats on your afghan finish. It's adorable. We got about 14" of snow over the past 2 days, which wouldn't be bad but add 40-60mph winds and you end up with 4-6ft drifts!

The afghan is very cute! I am sure it will be loved. But I have strong doubts about you not buying any new stash this year, you enjoy it too much to hold out an entire year.
