Thanks so much for the compliments on my first finished block on Shores. I hope to get back to it soon. It’s been an interesting week. I’ve been heads down trying to get my current class at school finished up (Microsoft Project), and will be taking my final next week if all goes well. I’ll be glad to have that done and move on to my final class. Anyway, the weather people have been predicting bad weather most of the week this week, so I’ve been hauling my laptop back and forth from work to home every night. When I woke up Thursday morning, we were covered in a blanket of snow. Now, please keep in mind this is Dallas we are talking about. Seriously. This is the third snow we’ve had this winter which is nuts. But, it usually snows, then melts within a day.
It continued to snow all day yesterday. My school closed at 3pm yesterday afternoon and is closed today too. When I headed home from work last night, the kids in my neighborhood were still sledding down the hill at the park on trashbags (yeah, we don’t usually have a need for sleds in Texas).
It still is covered this morning, in fact I hear we got a record 11 inches of snow. Our poor trees are sagging terribly under the weight of the snow. But I had to admit to feeling a bit magical standing underneath the tree, with the branches creating a little wintery umbrella.
I’m working from home today, and so thankful I have the ability to do that. Eric and I are hoping to go out to the park later to see more of the snow while it’s still around.
It’s a good thing, though, that somebody loves me. Just in time for the arctic blast, my friend Kim made this amazing scarf for me!
I believe she said this was Noro Silk Garden.
And she made it long and skinny, because I’d mentioned I wanted a long and skinny scarf. I just love it so much. I’ve been wearing it with everything, in all different combinations of neck-wrapping options. Thank you, thank you, thank you, Kim!! I promise I won’t whine and beg for anything else anytime soon….well, I’ll at least give it a couple of weeks.
So…since I haven’t done any stitching at all this week, I’ve filled my time thinking about Market releases. So many pretty things coming out. My list is growing exponentially, but a few of the things on it are:
What are you pre-ordering?
That’s it for me today. Eric and I are headed out for a walk through the snowy park behind our house with our cameras. Hopefully there will be stitching in my future tonight!
I am grateful for our electricity staying on – my parents had theirs go out for about eleven hours.
