Started my day seeing this;
So far DH has cleared off the carport twice! We’ve had 14 inches since 2:00 this morning and it’s still coming down. Winter has arrived in full force. Update: DH did it 2 more times; I’ve done it once! Winter is here! ❄️⛄️❄️
My morning is being spent getting caught up with emails, reading blogs and doing the necessary household chores. I had to go to town yesterday to pick up DH’s prescriptions so I stocked up on some groceries to be ready for the possibility of being snowed in. Am I ever glad I did!
I have several quilt projects on the go right now (no surprise there 😉) but I’m thinking I need to find my knitting or crocheting or some hand stitching work in case the power goes out. We often have 6 -8 hour outages so it’s time to be ready.
I know I have socks on the needles as well as a shawl. It seems to me I have a scarf started for a crochet pattern. It’s funny but the arrival of snow always has me wanting to play with wool as well as fabric.
I think the need to play with wool has something to do with the snuggly warmth you only get from wool; slippers, socks, shawls, sweaters, etc.
Perhaps it’s time to start Shine by Elizabeth Eastmond? I have fabrics I have been saving to do a kaleidoscope quilt but this lovely pattern has me intrigued. 😉. I’ve not done much in the way of hand piecing so I think it’s time to challenge myself with another new project for this crazy year 😉
Now I just need to find the fabric bin I put away. 🤔. Back to the storage room I go as soon as I finish my Nanaimo Bars. DH has a voracious sweet tooth so I thought I would/should reward all his hard work shovelling snow with a sweet, chocolatey treat; one of his favourites!
What are you doing for fun on this Friday the 13th?
