Making Winter 2013 – Playdough style | Celtic Cast On

I’m joining Claire today in Making Winter 2013 The idea being that we post once a week things that we are doing for fun to get through the winter. On the weekend we had a Nor Easter blow through. We didn’t end up with much snow because of the blizzard like conditions and lots of drifting.

An unexpected Welcome to Winter | Celtic Cast On

It all started on thursday when we decided to rent a post hole digger to drill some holes at the top of the driveway for some fencing. We had a skift of snow wednesday but we were good, the ground was’t frozen and we still had a while to get the fencing up before winter was really upon us. This is the post hole digger and let me tell you… Read More »An unexpected Welcome to Winter | Celtic Cast On
