#61 πŸ’œ the snow came back…πŸ™€πŸ˜ΏπŸ˜»…but then all melted the very same day!


Hello & Welcome to my 61st episode of the KWH iPad Show! Today’s feature is a tangled bit of freshly melted April snow, kitty cats and another blogging milestone πŸ™‚

Want to skip straight to cake? Check out Chef Hurricane’sΒ video below, featuring his how-to for decorating your own Yarn Ball Kitty Cake!

And how ’bout that snow, eh? Yup, our normally wacky weather struck again on April 3rd… SnoOow sweet of spring to gift me this wintery surprise on my birthday! Later that afternoon, my wish came true when it all melted πŸ™‚

April 7th also marked 2 full years since my iMac died and left the blogging to just you, me & my iPad… That’s actually how this whole “KWH iPad Show” thing began, in case you were wondering. An “about” page would be a good place to explain that. I really wanna-oughta- gotta buckle down and do that :-/

Anyhoo, the “KWH iPad Show” is just my way of amusing myself until we can finally replace my old iMac. Who could ever have imagined the show would last 2 years (and counting)… wOw!!! I’m thrilled to know you’re all here and that I didn’t just curl up in a blogless corner, somewhere ❀ 



Introducing… my Bramble❀tini Heart knitting pattern

–— πŸ’œ Have you thought about buying a copy of my knitting pattern today? πŸ’œ

Feel free to share links to my posts πŸ™‚ I look forward to hearing from you!

  1. A belated Happy Birthday, Jackie! πŸ˜€ Always a lift and delight to read your posts and this one is no exception! I just love the knitting bag cake…I’m forwarding this to my friend who loves to knit! Yikes, snow…I’m in full Spring mode although wish we’d seen even a day of the white stuff! Well done on blogging via iPad! I have tried and failed miserably in formatting posts on iPads…how is the iMac shopping going or it seems you don’t need one? Wishing you a lovely week. πŸ˜€β€οΈοΈ

  3. You are certainly not in a blogging netherworld. You are an appreciated and valued part of a whole. I’m personally delighted to be able to drop by. Its a glimpse of a life and a passion and a purpose that inspires me by its creativity and beauty. Perhaps when my own life is less ‘stuff’ I must do I will appropriate some of the beauty you have shared and maybe find out more. Cheers!

    • Thanks Johanna ❀ Alas, we've still a hint of flurries in this week's forecast. Plus 50/50 chance for May :O BUT the ground is thawing, so any flakes now will be short-lived! Wishing you a wonderful week! πŸ™‚ πŸ’œ Jackie@KWH

    Well a belated happy birthday, Jackie! Snow…something I’ve only seen a handful of times in my life. I remember a snowfall several years ago…it thrilled me! It was sooo quiet, and I heard a tree branch break off under the weight of the snow. Glad you got your wish and had the snow melt away. And good luck with getting a new iMac!

    • Thanks Ruth πŸ™‚ Hard to believe nearly half my blog’s life has been via the iPad!!! The Cat Came Back is one of my favourite animated films. Then when I saw that ball of yarn cake, it was the cat’s meow to bind the post together… LoL πŸ™‚ πŸ’œ Jackie@KWH
