after snow

21 12 2009

The weather is blue and crisp and so lovely today, perfect for a winter solstice.

So that this doesn’t get lost in all of the glorious pictures, I just want to say: Bebe is walking. Walking! And what do you do when your sweet baby takes his first wobbly, staggering, toothy-smiling steps? Jump up and down, clap your hands, shriek with glee, and enjoy the moment.

The weekend snowstorm caused us to miss a gingerbread house party and other holiday fun, but it also gifted us with lots of time together in the warm indoors and then exploring the snow. Here are a few things we did:

sewing

lap blanket for granny - wip

baking

dried orange slices

stringing

cranberry garland

making

pixie skirt #1

twirling

purling

YAY-ing! (OK, so the last one isn’t a real word, but you get the idea. I mean, Bebe walking…)

And a note on the spiced hot chocolate recipe? I ran out of chocolate powder and tried using melted baker’s chocolate. It turned into this weird gelatinous goo that, while very tasty when eaten with a spoon, did not resemble a hot chocolate beverage. At all. Just so you know!

Wishing you much joy on this beautiful day.

Gorgeous pics. And what a sweet little Bebe!

And, personally, I love getting snowed in. So cozy.

Hooray for first steps!
I’m curious what the items in the sewing picture will turn out to be.

The tutu things are so great! And the knitting looks cozy and fabulous!

You get way too much done when you’re snowed in! 😉

I really, really loved the pixie skirt/tutu project. They were delightful at every single stage (well, except for the hour of cutting tulle). And the best part – besides the dancing & frolicsome glee I hope they’ll inspire in my neices – is trying each one on myself for a test-twirl when I finished them… I kinda want to make one for myself.
