So, I decided to start with the pleasant things.
I have been working on Shepherds Bush Valentine Trifles and have my first one finished.
What a fun, quick stitch.
These will be a nice addition to my Valentine Smalls Basket
A close up so you can see the buttons better.
The next one says "Cutie Pie" and is like a conversation heart.
I think the next project after these are done is a Drawn Thread Easter.
I did break down and ordered the silk thread for it.
I think I will make a bell pull out of it.
When I get the thread, expect a post.
Now, for the same old lament....the weather.
We are in the midst of Storm Seneca.
It started snowing about 70 minutes ago and we have at least a half inch.
The wind is wailing 23-36 miles an hour.
We are suppose to get between 4 and 8 inches of snow.
That should pose a significant problem for the Shih Tzu. covering his butt if we get 8.
Then the Polar Vortex returns and temperatures drop.
Below 0 at night and the highs if we are lucky in the teens.
The biggest problem now is frozen pipes.
Many smaller communities have "run orders".
That means you keep a tap open so the water is running the size of a pencil all the time to keep the water moving.
They will average because that can be a lot of water and a sizeable water bill.
So if your pipes freeze what do you do until the city comes and thaws you out?
I have filled some buckets and garbage cans in case our pipes succumb.
What a nightmare that would be.
Wise to be prepared.
Made a pot of chili because that sounded like a good idea.
Chances are the weather is crazy where you are.
What an insane storm.
Hope you are warm, dry and safe.
Have a wonderful weekend.
Thanks for stopping.
Keep on stitching
