We have just survived a snow storm of “epic proportions”, a “historic event”, and one that could be “catastrophic”. These are a few terms used by our local weathermen and women about the Ice/Snow Storm heading our way. We live in Georgia and if we get 2” of snow, we all panic! I do okay with snow if we do not lose power!! That was the only worry I had when they started predicting ½” to 1” of ice. I have lived through two terrible ice storms before and they are anything but pleasant. Luckily, no power was lost at our home; however, I believe in and around Atlanta, there were about 150,000 customers who did.
Some of our snow pictures . . .
Just say the word “snow” and I immediately start getting sewing and knitting and card making fever. I guess you could say, I never am bored or still for very long!!
I made six KnitClutches® that I market at Main Street Yarns. And if I do say so myself, the fabrics on these are to die for. Three of which are completely finished . . . And on the back of the clutch you will find two grommets where your yarn can easily slide through, making your project portable and I might add, stylish! I usually do not make two alike; however, the Paris fabric is so very popular that Dee ordered 6 more in that fabric. I still have two more to make in this fabric.
Two almost finished . . . Just need to add closures . . .
and one that I need to add the lining and then the closure . . .
You can see the lining that I chose for this bag! I love it!!!
I did make a couple of knitting needle clutches. I love making these. Simple, quick, and very functional as well as pretty to look at.
and Opened . . .

Love shoulder bags, too! So I took scraps and made this one for me: Cut the flower from another piece of fabric and appliqued to the top of the bag where I used an old pair of jeans to make the flap and strap.
