* yarn to save my sanity with another day off school
* setting aside iffy coloured yarny project and learning to crochet bobbles

Your snow is simply breathtaking. I'm sighing for snow here... we just got a glaze, and you got a thick layer of frosting! Very jealous.

I love you, Dottie Angel! Haha.
Come visit me! All friendly bloggers welcome. :)

Looks like you guys didn't get as much snow as we did, but very pretty nevertheless! Enjoy your time with Mr. Hook, I might try to do the same although not much enjoying is involved (yet)...

Always love your inspiring posts, and nothing like a row of bobbles to make you smile!

The pictures at the top of your post are awesome. I love the look of snow but think we have seen enough this year. Perfect excuse though for giving into our passions though. The bobbly crochet looks great. Hope to see it on a project soon.

Lisa said...

Just learned how to crochet bobbles myself, next step changing yarn so I can have many different coloured bobbles.......

i love your day! bobbles are beautiful- almost snow like. enjoy the comfort!

it is sunny, but chilly here. i feel guilty hanging out inside, but uncomfortable when hanging out outside. what's a girl to do?

Mary-Cate said...

i love snowy photos!

dear BobbA-lee-bob,
I always enjoy your posts, it has a lot to do with your WORDS (IMAGINE THAT? hee hee) Appreciate
your list of 'things to like' today. Good to just find things to like even if there are things to drive us crazy!
Today it is snowing and Winter has decended down hard all around us once again on the Nebraska prairie. A bit hard to swallow after our 70+ a bit ago. But....amoung other things, I 'like' the Canada Snow Geese roosting and feeding in the field to the west of me, on their way North I suppose. That is a sign of hope...and the calender day says it is one day closer to Spring anyway.

love,

i say what a lovely shade of granny pink your stool is wearing rx

Kristen said...

Oh my goodness, your photos are spectacular. Happy snow day, dear! :)

elsy said...

love the bobbles...not the snow (although your photos are wonderful)....our long, for the uk, shift of snow at Christmas has cured me of that yearning for this winter.

Dear Tif, we're having the same snow day down here in the Columbia gorge in Corbett. I was supposed to volunteer at Multnomah Falls, but they closed it for the day.. so now I get to crochet the border around my rainbow granny stripe blanket! I've got similar photos on my blog, hope you pop over and look.

Hugs.. Teresa

Shelley in SC said...

Lovely to see all the things you are enjoying in the last few posts. I'm so glad the snow seems to be gone from our parts!

wood & wool stool said...

love your new addiction of the bubbling snowflaky crochet

Itchin' Stitchin' said...

Love the Bobbles! Wishing for spring here - we have had record breaking snow and snow days.

celine said...

thinking of you from southern UK where it was 14 degree c and sunny today. Not that I am bragging or anything....!

Michelle said...

Bobbly goodness...that's some fine crocheting you have done...
Most impressed...
I love your snow pics...It always looks so picture perfect all white and wintery...

Marilyn said...

bobbles are my very favourite things....I love to make bobbles...the more bobbles, I say, the better!! Enjoy your Mr Hook time!

mixette said...

I got a bobble crochet knee-length sweater (am in *love*) today at the favorite Thrift! I had no idea that was what it is called, and here you are writing about it - must be my double-lucky day.

Naturally Carol said...

I do like the bobbles..would love to know how to do that!

Your own backyard.... said...

Oh how I love the colour of the clogs and the flowers ... just right for a snowy day!

Sharon said...

i love the new bumpy crochet...perhaps some leg warmers for the cold chicken legs? photos please....

CRY said...

Great post

muumun said...

I love little Olive with the scarf, so cute. The atmosphere at mossy shed looks so different when there is no snow. Take care your health well.

Claire said...

Hey Tiff, what a bobblelicious time you have been having......

Lovin' the snowy pics, that tree in the first pic makes the airstream look tiny, must be one huge mama of a tree.

Looks like someone got out there with a snow gun and went crazy, shooting snow all over the place.
Have you crocheted a lovely coat for Little Olive, I can see her in something red out in the snow..........

Hope you have managed to hold onto your sanity, on snowy days,

Claire :}

Wendy said...

Oh so lovely snow!!! I dreamt there was snow in sunny ole' Bournemouth last night (bizarrely as it was positively spring like yesterday!) Was almost disappointed when i woke up!
You cannot beat a good bobble stitch... Although mine have never quite lined up properly. I'm currently puff stitch-ing! Similar... ; )

anniebananie said...

awh bobbly crochet, i need to learn how to do that. looks amazers!

vicki said...

oooh I do love bobbly crochet!

Richard Rose said...

A book I have calls that bobble stitch "Blackberry Salad Stitch". It's quite a nice stitch and, if done in appropriate colours, can look something like a berry. :)

Grupo Mãos Dadas said...

we are in 40oC summer, and i liked to see some snow
and little olive is very stylish

ryanne said...

I like this post. new at crocheting, your bobbles are motivating.

Cakey(^-^*)/コンチャ! said...

Hello! I've just stumbled across your blog and thought I'd say hi! Your photos are absolutely gorgeous, I look forward to seeing and reading more! xxx

Diane said...

I need everything in this post!! Except the snow! Great blog

Snuskebassa said...

Mossy shed in winter time :-)
Lovely!

gillyflower said...

Love the white crochet bobbles - do you think you were influenced by the snow??!!!
Those beautiful orange flowers (Chrysanths?)look fantastic against the snowy backdrop and the cute blue clogs - so cheery!
Have a great snow day - has actually been springlike here in the UK today.
Loving your blog!

Of course your dear doggies wear hankies for bandanas -- why am I so delightfully surprised?! Enjoy the snowy-stay-at-home-being-creative day. I like to make big pots of soup on days like that, and am eating orange soup today. Orange food actually can be really, really delicious -- mine is carrot soup with potato, tomatoes, onion, basil, and veggie broth, all simmered together and then pureed with a hand-held blender right in the big soup pot. Very satisfying and rib-sticking!

Marlene P. said...

I am so sick of your cuteness. It is driving me crazy in the best of ways. I just (sorta) taught myself to crochet like two days ago on an online tutorial...and I think I need a class. To see your bobbles today just sent me mad! I have got to get a handle on it...it is making me feel like a loser and I am soooo NOT. I have sewing mastered. I can cook ANYTHING...and it is fantastic. I can knit a lil bit...but I want to crochet. BAD...LY.Keep inspiring me, otherwise I might end up a great big MESS of a woman! Now take a listen...What would one of your bags look like with a bit of bobbly crochet action on it? Just a thought!! ~Much love...you make my day. Marlene

lunefantasy said...

Eh Mister Hook could be a good friend I think...
whaouah the boobles !!!

dottie angel said...

haha heehee! you always always make me smile :)
indeed we have extremely tall trees in our back yard, actually everywhere!
and Marlene P,
how you made me laugh! you are just like i was 3 years ago, driving myself nuts cause i could not get the hang of crocheting... you can do it my dear! i have done nothing but double crochet until yesterday and then i was like, "for goodness" sake Tif, just do it and voila! i am now into a 'simply sampler' blanket and i know bobbles are achieveable for you and everyone else after all, if i can bobble then so can you :)

have a peachy weekend my dearies

Dawn said...

giorgia said...

hungryhippie said...

I don't know where to comment because every-single-post is so "eye candy"....as always! Love the blue clogs. Love the pink stool. Love all the yummy knits that make me want to wrap up and go for a lovely jaunt-and I'm in England, land of eternal rain (as u well know being a Brit)....
