Still snowbound!

The little black bus is still stuck at the top of driveway. Will the high in the 40's this weekend be enough to melt the snow? Not complaining. The gorgeous white snow reminds me of my adventures in Maine. Cherished memories I will never forget. The people I met there will always hold a special place in my heart. They are hard working and creative souls. I miss them.

As for the Mad Hatter. I can hardly wait to bead him up. I tweaked the old pattern. Already I like him much better. He needed boots and mushrooms. Hopefully I can have him finished by midnight! Will this complete the Beyond Wonderland series? Doubt it. There still is Twiddle Dee and Twiddle Dum. Who is your favorite character in the story of Alice in Wonderland?

I have had so much fun making these little characters. I am considering making a series of different characters that will represent the nations of the World. Right after I finish the geometric designs, the flowers, the petroglyphs, wild animals and the list goes on. When will the needle case madness end? Never I hope!

Here's a pic of the Mount Desert Island Hospital in Bar Harbor, Maine. This is where I worked the Winter of 2008.


  1. Hubby and I spent two days in Bar Harbor several years ago. I loved the town (and Stephen King's house!!). Love your latest series! I don't know how many more needle cases I can give away! HA Love 'em! Stay warm!! Hope you get out soon!

  2. Hey Robbie has is sunny Florida? I never did go to Stephen King's house but I do plan to go back to Maine as soon as I can. I would love to go to Salem next Halloween. I could just keep going and fly on up to Bar Harbor for a visit. The needle cases just keep coming. From where they come I do not know. Sometimes I wonder what my kids will do with all of them 50 years from now.
