February and all that SNOW!

February 2014 has been quite a snowy month so far.
It snowed three times last week, not piddly snow, but big bucket fulls of snow.  Come to think of it, I think it snowed the week before!  I've lost track....
Anyway, the kids love it, Pigpen loves it and I've been mesmerized by it. Watching those tiny flakes fall from the sky and covering up the grey of winter.
I love this snow, but this week, for some unknown reason, I've been missing home.
Perhaps it's because whilst I've been freezing, my lovely family has been baking in the hot Australian sun.
Somedays, like these snowy February days I miss that warm sun and the smell of eucalyptus.

So whilst the snow fell and my thoughts turned to home, I sewed.
A little patchwork quilt, not quite finished, but looking lovely in the snow.

I hope the weather is making you happy and for my poor friends and family across the pond in the U.K., I do hope it starts to dry up a little over there.

P.S. After finishing this post, I looked out the window to see it is snowing, again!


  1. Dear Louise,
    What a snow on the table top outside! In the Netherlands we didn't have snow this winter, it feels like spring! I can understand you would like to be with your family in the sun right now.
    I like your sewing and your Featherweight!
    Sincerely, Francis.

    1. Thank you! I hope the spring makes it here soon. I did see my daffodils peeking through before the snow arrived andi hope they are ok buried under two feet of snow.

  2. Goodness that is a lot of snow! Like you though I could do with a touch of hot sunshine right now - though I am happy to report that it currently isn't raining here in my patch of the UK so I'll settle for that!

  3. How lovely your snow looks. As you mentioned, across the pond we have rain and yet more rain. I tell an untruth, it has not rained for 2 days. Today i saw the sun so put my bikini on ;0)
    My daffs are peeking through and should flower soon. The crocus opened in the sunshine, so pretty.
    I have family in Perth, Aus and I am fed up with hearing how warm it is ;0)
    Hugs x
