I live in the beautiful state of Wisconsin. I'm a wife and stay at home mom of 3 sons. I love to paint, sew, knit, stitch and create. I enjoy selling my creations at local fairs, ebay and here on my blog. When I not crafting I love to decorate my home. I'm always moving furniture, painting or switching things around.

Snow and Sew...

I'm ready for spring but Mother Nature says "let it snow!"
 
I think we got about 9-10 inches and it's still snowing.
 
I just got in from snow blowing and it is so beautiful that I thought I would share some pictures.
 
I really wish our school had a snow day but no my son had to go to school. 
The snow is real packy (is that a word? you know what I mean)perfect for making snowmen.
I love how the snow is sticking to the trees.
 

This is the back yard and patio.
 

 
Just a few pictures to show you what I've been working on.
All of these pieces are in various stages of being done.
 
I'm still working on winter and fall penny rugs and runners.
Just getting ready for the fairs I do starting in September.


 
 I love sunflowers.  I love doing different backgrounds. 
 Look how different these sunflowers look in brown or black.
 

More sunflowers the pattern is from Primitive Gatherings.
The pumpkins are my own design.  I like mixing different orange pumpkins with white pumpkins.

 I love the colorful scarves on the snowmen. I still need to do some stitching, add buttons, eyes and snowflakes.
Snowmen is my own design and the mitten pattern is Primitive Gatherings.
 
 I love stars too!
I like using all my primitive colored wools to make these.
 
 These penny rugs are my best seller at fairs.
 

 These penny rugs are so much fun to make!  
I love mixing all the different colors of wool together.
 
I like how the black stitching makes all the colors pop.
Today I will be spending the day shoveling and stitching.
Enjoy your day,
Leanne

We didn't get much snow here ~ just enough to shovel.
Beautiful penny rugs ~ so many wonderful colors.
Soon I'm hoping to learn this technique ~ I've signed up for a working with wool class at Primitive Gatherings ~ Oh I can't wait.
Enjoy your day sewing away!!!

Hi Leanne,
I love your work! And I too love the contrasting color thread on my rugs.

Oh, and it's snowing here right now too....just been a horrible week of it.
I have a few pictures like yours with the trees so heavy. The prettiest look.
Blessings,
Karen
