You'd think I'd had gotten a lot more stitching done since we have been snowed in for the last several days. But I look at last week's photo and it doesn't seem like I made much progress.
Probably cuz the roof seemed to take forever, and the huge house that the roof is attached to, will probably take just as long.
Then to top it off, I had stitched the pots on the left side, and realized that when I stitched the pots on the right side, the ones on the left were done in the wrong color. Frog! Rivet, Rivet!
Plus last week went by in a flurry with snowstorm prep. Getting to the grocery store, running errands with the hubby because all of a sudden the battery went kaputz, and I had to run into all the stores and get stuff, while he kept the truck going. Last stop was to pick up a new battery.
Lots of stuff you have to do! Make sure you have plenty of propane for heaters. Put gas in the car, get cash. Do all the laundry in case you lose power. Plus remind my college kids several times each day to remind them to stock up.
That got it bad in Harrisonberg too. Somewhere below this snow is my daughter's Smart car.
My husband decided today to order a snowblower. Can't believe he waited this long! He went out 3 different times to shovel, trying to keep from shoveling the 24" we received over the weekend, in one try. He'd still been shoveling as I write this!
Our truck from our bedroom window. Not trying to over dramatize the snow, after all I was born and raised in Michigan. But this type of snow in this area makes people nuts! People here can barely drive in the rain.
Let's just hope next week is calmer?! That way I'll have a lot more stitching time. Till then- happy stitching!
