Snow, Shawls and the Clay Ball

 We woke up to an inch of snow this morning. There is such hype about snow in this area as we just don't get it that often. The local media goes crazy building the snow story, and the snow seems to always come up short. No matter, it is always pretty.

In the meantime, I am still getting ready for the Clay Ball. I have been experimenting with shawls. I will wear one and my friend might.

 Jan, one of my blogger buddies, came to visit her father and was kind enough to model for me. We agreed that I would just show the shawl. I enjoyed her visit so much, knew that I would. Jan's blog:

I love the way that these turned out, but not for the Clay Ball, so I went back to experimenting. and came up with more. These are red wools and plum wools over metallic netting with silk laid in. So much fun. More to do.


  1. i love them all, but green, green, i love green:)

  2. Thanks, I love it also, any shade. This is going today to a friend for her 65 birthday. Hope that she likes it, think she will.

  3. I love the green too but I am partial to green!
    Anyone would be thrilled to get one of your garments. I know I love love love my scarf!

  4. The green one reminds me of the lichen that grows on the trees around here, I believe it is called lung wort.

    Thanks for the shout out on my blog. It was wonderful to finally meet you, we seemed to hit it off pretty well. No surprise there.

    My dad sent me the newspaper article with your photo in it regarding the fund raiser ball. That is pretty cool! Good photo! You are so very generous with your beautiful work. I hope there are plenty of high bidders on your piece.

    We had 5 inches of fluffy snow here this morning. School is closed.

  5. Well, as you know I am usually drawn to anything pink. This time it is the green and turquoise shawl that stands out.

    Good luck at the Ball.

  6. Thank you friends for your great comments. The green was a gift for my friends birthday, and she did love it. My granddaughter is coming to model for me again. I'll have her show my next two.
    Love and Hugs
