SNOWFLAKES

There's a bajillion of them on the ground still, and more predicted for today, but I'm getting a little tired of them, personally. (I may be a bit cranky today -- in addition to this chest cold that won't go away, and my weird sleeping habits that won't go away, I woke up this morning with a weird kink in my back that won't go away!)I far prefer this kind of snowflake:

This came in a Christmas card from my friend Grace and I love it! I don't know if it's knit or crocheted (and I asked her and she didn't answer me....I'm hoping she'll leave a comment, hint, hint) but it's a beauty. We didn't put up our stupid little fake tree this year, so the snowflake is hanging on Michael's Norfolk pine -- which I may decorate fully now.

I'm about a quarter finished the final pair of Christmas socks -- I'll have no problem getting done, done, done! Hailey is already on the bus home from Whistler and will arrive tonight, Julie comes on the train tomorrow, and Joshua on Boxing Day. I'm so looking forward to a great Christmas with everyone!

I prefer that kind of snowflake too. Daughter (who lives in Victoria) says it is just like home (in Ontario). We are in the midst of another snow storm ... it just keeps coming and coming. Happy Holidays. Stay warm and safe.

I inherited a collection of such snowflakes that Mother used to hang from her livingroom light fixture. They are crocheted.

It seems to me that the snowflake is the perfect ornament to commemorate this Christmas for you, eh?

I did reply maybe it got lost in cyberspace, I was saying that I had to look for the customs form that I have to try and locate your box, but yes its crocheted!!!! Merry Christmas

Morning Marilyn Merry Christmas to you and yours! Presently the *snowflakes* falling from the sky are in liquid form which suits me just fine. The crocheted one is lovely.
