Almost A House


Monday, we were snowed in with around 7 inches of white stuff. Not much for some people but just the mention of snow can cause major panic in areas of the south! After the snow stopped later in the day, we were *blessed* with a sheeting of freezing rain and sleet (as well as below freezing temps). This morning everything was solid ice! DH tried to go into to work but ended up coming back home. Tomorrow will be day #3 that school has been cancelled.

I finally pulled out my camera to get an updated photo of AWWR. I have managed to pull it out the past several evenings for some short stitching time. As you can see, the house is half finished. It has been too hard trying to stitch very much while constantly reaching for a Kleenex because of this cold. I wanted something stitchy to do so I pulled out my stash. While sorting through the piles, I ran into a lot of old friends who have been patiently waiting for their turn at the needle! Which one will be next? So many choices!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Until next time, may you have simple days and an uncluttered heart.

Enjoy your stitching, Sherry!

Love the sampler that you are working on! The colors are beautiful. Hopefully you have been able to get some stitching done while you have been snowed in.

That's beautiful, Sherry! And I can't think of a better thing than to be snowed in with stitching. We had about 10 inches, and our wind chill is unspeakable.

Sherry, what a pretty WIP!! I love it. Try to stay warm and safe... no sense in driving in icy conditions. Hope you're feeling better soon!

I guess we got about a foot, which isn't terribly much for here, but it was enough to bring everything to a glorious stop for the day yesterday. The middle two kids played outside till they were half frozen, and then had to defrost in a hot bath with cocoa. :D

Love your progress on AWWR!
