We got snow. We also got ice and sleet. We are on day 3 of the storm. I made sure to refill the bird feeders before the storm hit so my backyard friends wouldn't have to worry about finding food under the frozen white stuff.
Day 1 was a wet but pretty snow with big fat flakes falling to the ground that hung around almost all day. See all the cardinals waiting for their turn at the bird feeder!
Day 2 was a dry snow that would blow around like powder, sleet and freezing rain. Messy and very dangerous. It was best to stay inside except for stepping out to take a few pictures now and then. Notice my Japanese Red Maple is full of red buds from the warm weather we had been having before the storm!
We are on Day 3 now and it is still snowing. It looks pretty falling but the roads are still horrible so everyone is staying put today. Remember, a tiny snowflake can send panic through the hearts of southerners! lol.
While stuck in the house (literally! Because I'm not risking slipping and sliding at my age), I pulled my Group #1 stack and decided on my new start. I have been wanting to do Guarding Eden by Examplars of the Heart and it has been in my stash for several years begging to be pulled. I haven't done enough on it to take a progress picture yet. It is a large piece but is not very heavily detailed so.......
And I am still working on The Apostle's Creed on weekends. I love the original colors but I ended up changing most of them because I needed some extra pop and zing!
I have been working Mary's Sampler by PSS also. Since I set aside the weekends for The Apostle's Creed, I need to make a schedule for this piece also.
We are hoping to be thawed out by the weekend but until then I will stitch! Thanks so much for stopping by! May you have simple days and uncluttered heart! Stay safe and warm.
