That's okay. It is winter after all.
The forecast changed yesterday from, "Hey there may be snow the next few days," to "By the Way...6 to 11 inches of the white stuff are coming your way beginning tomorrow morning!"
Of course, I hadn't grocery shopped on Sunday or Monday (my usual), so we were out of stuff that I would want - which meant facing the snow-crazed shoppers. UGH..
The phone rang around 5:30am from the school. No School Today. The streets were totally clear at that time. I got up, made coffee and decided to venture out to the grocery (I know, same idea as everyone else!) I arrived at the Trader Joes at 8:02am (it opens at 8am) and it was packed!!! Apparently there had been an outdoor line before it was open.
|No - the sidewalks at the shopping center are NOT blue, that's de-icing salt to pre-treat the sidewalks|
Then it was off to a doctor appt. Could I squeeze it in before the white stuff really got to be a problem? Maybe. I ventured out again.
Lovely flowers, a happy yellow mug of coffee, a view of the snow from inside. The fire going in the next room (hubby's office today). I feel crafting materials calling me, I feel the pull from the crochet hook sucking me in. Yes, it's bound to be a good day! Now to decide whether I continue with the hand quilting on the table runner I sewed yesterday?
|Curved piecing table runner from a lesson taught by Sujata Shah when I was in the Philly Modern Quilters group.|
|Yesterday in honor of my ASG meeting, decided to stitch up a backing and finish off this project.|
|All pinned in a quilty sandwich and now ready to receive some nice hand perle cotton stitching -Gees Bend look I hope.|
Can't believe it looked like this only this morning as the sun was just coming up!
