Okay, I admit it! This found-object artpiece was really bought for their little pup Lulu ... for this photo op!

The next day snow storm Euclid dumped plenty of the "white stuff" and we went for a walk by the ice covered lake and through the woods. We also spent plenty of time watching the dozens of different types of winter birds eating at the feeders outside my parents' sliding glass doors. A dozen turkeys wandered by as well.

We are now officially snowbound ... and loving it. It is an excellent excuse for staying inside and stitching! I posted 29 photos on a Flickr! account ... HERE or HERE FOR A SLIDESHOW!
