Truthfully, I kinda wish I were in your shoes. I love BIG snows. Now those blizzard winds are another thing. I haven't seen a large snow since 1987 when we had 20" overnight. I was 10 when the blizzard of 1978 came through. Oh the stories I have heard about that one.
Heard on HLN that some of the ski resorts in Maine had guests already in place to enjoy the fresh powder. Told my son this and his comment was, "Genius!" I have to agree - where else do they know how to move massive amounts of snow and are more prepared for weather than a ski resort. Good thinking!
Had to meet my goal of finishing project number 10 before posting. But, there is something else I would like to show you before I put up those pictures.
I got some mail this week! And look what Dawn sent to me!
|Hehe, my name!|
|The goodies inside!|
And I'm thinking, "Ok, is she sending me another pattern?" Ha, that was only half of it! This bag makes me giggle - the fabric is joyful. I honestly can not think of another word for it. Joyful! And to know she practiced my name too -- aaahhh! Then to see that it was lined in blue. Have I told everyone my favorite color is blue? Must have or she really pays attention! And if you look closely she has made counting pins for me too! In blue! Ha - she knows I like matchy matchy. Then she sent me a little snowman pattern -- hehe, gotta love another snowman. Have I mentioned the fact on this blog that I like snowmen?? Hmm, someone has been paying attention or I have mentioned it one too many times.
Dawn, thank you so very much for my gifts. Your timing was perfect as I was completely under the weather with this nasty sinus infection that will not let go. You brightened my day and with the emails we've been sharing - I know I now have another life long stitching friend! We have GOT to arrange a road trip to Columbus. And I know there are a couple of other women who live in the Columbus area that could help us spend our money!
I mentioned earlier that I just finished my 10th item this year. Well, it's part of my Snow Guys/Belles SAL and I don't want to show it quiet yet so how about a sneak peek?

I think I may go get a head start on March's pattern for the SAL. I won't finish it but it is a big one. I need a head start. Then I think I'll head over to another Santa. Must get some Christmasy fabric for the finish before Jo-Ann's removes it all from the store.
Tomorrow we are celebrating my sister's 29th birthday - her actual birthday was Wednesday. Told her to enjoy this year -- her last in her 20's. Oh, to be 29 again. I was about 100 pounds lighter than I am now. Ack, to admit that. MUST START DIET AGAIN!
Well, the grayness of today is depressing me - time to get under the Ott light!
Take care and have a wonderful weekend.
