Snow abounds















Like in many locations around the country we have lots of snow. These are the drifts in my front yard.














Outside my window the birds are really congregating.














Then I saw these on the lawn. I believe that they are Hungarian Partridge.














And here is one close up. A minute later they all walked over the snow bank and disappeared. I was taking these through the window so they aren't real clear.


















I did this drawing on Sunday. I have wanted to try two faces together and this was my first try. I see this as two sisters looking out on the world. This was fun to do and I think I want to try it again.
















I finished weaving the blanket last night. I am now busy making repairs and twisting all the fringe. This a picture showing some of the fringe already twisted. This has to be done before the blanket can be washed and fulled.

Just in case I don't get back here I want to wish you all a wonderful holiday. enjoy the time with family and friends and be safe.

Oh, wow, that blanket is beautiful!

I said to Raf, "Why do they have Hungarian partridges in Idaho." The smart aleck answered, "For the same reason we have English sparrows in Texas!"

I looked them up in the bird book, too. Never have seen them before.

Merry, merry Christmas!

Bismarck broke its record for December snowfall a few days ago at 25. Now we are to have 3-6 more inches today. I almost got stuck in our driveway on Monday. Yuck!!!
