And Even More Weather

I think on Friday we were the coldest places in the contiguous United States.  
After the really cold weather of the previous week and the warm weekend, we had rain on Monday that turned to an ice storm.  
Parking lots were incredibly bad so, Bob took me to work. 
Then we got six inches of snow Tuesday night to Wednesday morning, so Bob took me to work on Wednesday.  
We live on a corner.  
As the snowplows plow and turn the corner, all the snow gets dumped at the bottom of our driveway.  
There was about two feet of snow at the end of the drive.  
It started snowing again Thursday afternoon and we got another six inches of snow.  
I told him I could drive myself to work since I was able to get out of the driveway before the snowplows came through.  
He came home early from work and got the driveway cleaned out before I got home.  
We got two or three more inches yesterday .  
The good thing is it light and fluffy.  

Henry after he's been out rooting around in the snow.  
There had been more snow on his muzzle before I was able to get the phone.  
 After Tuesday, I had to light the Christmas lights to see how the deer were buried.  
 The chimnea after the first snow storm.  
 We are suppose to get another snowstorm Tuesday into Wednesday that may accumulate to 7-10 inches
Spring better be early this year.  
The last couple of years, the early part of winter has been pretty mild and late spring has been when we have been hit by storms.  
It needs to get nice in March!  Just sayin!!

Since there isn't much else to do...haha
I've had some progress on Sarah.  
I nearly have the flower border done.  
There is a lot of satin stitching.  
There is a flower in the border that has a satin stitched center.  
I will try one but, if it doesn't lay nice, I may do something different.  
I have found if the satin stitch is too long it gets wavy.
You can't pull too hard otherwise that distorts the look.  
Even though it is a reproduction, I really don't care if I stay true to the design.  
Sorry the lighting isn't the best.  

Hope the weather is better where you are.
I'm not really complaining, Bob takes care of the snow, it's just a hassle getting out and about. 
It is a good excuse to cozy up and stitch!

Have a wonderful week!
Keep on Stitching


  1. We have had the ice & light snow also.
    But last night it started & we have about 7" so far.
    Went to get salt before the snow for ice, and everyone is sold out!
    Are people maybe hoarding it? LOL
    Glad you can get out & about safely.
    Henry is too cute with his snow face!
    Nice stitching.
    Have a great week!

  2. We have had rain, a bit of sleet, and more rain/drizzle. Henry Ford looks adorable with the snowy nose. Be careful out there!

  3. Henry Ford looks so cute! I agree, the satin stitch can be tricky. At least you live where there are enough snowplows. We have had a real go of it. I have not been out since last Thursday.18 to 20 inches of snow and our neighborhood has not been plowed!
