Half a Snow Day!!!

Most of the U.S. is probably tired of snow, but we finally got our first real batch yesterday afternoon.
We got around 7 inches. I know--that is nothing compared to New England, but it is more than most people around here can handle.
I believe the news mentioned over 1000 traffic "incidents."

This was heading out to work this morning with plans of opening 2 hours later than normal.
And this was 5 hours later after a grand total of 2 customers.

Home again, home again jiggidy slippery jig!

Somewhere under that pile of snow, the spring bulbs had already started to bust out of the ground.  Probably had something to do with the 70 degree weather we had the other day.
And speaking of...
We had really high winds the other night and woke up to this...

It broke the fence as well and the tree is not standing up too straight but the good news is that it was all the garden stuff and not the one with the lawnmowers and other tools.
And it was going to get replaced anyway--just not right now.
We are busy doing inside things like all things organizing.
Like my new pantry:

Isn't it pretty????
It is sort of hard to get a zoomed out view because we have used up every bit of space.
Including the wall behind the door...

 I haven't finished filling this up yet, but I will get there.

So, snowy night and we have all worked very hard this week.
Time for relaxing!

Next time--the beginnings of organization of the sewing room. 
A seriously slow work in progress.

 Or brain rot ?????
Thought I had my plans for what to do in February, but I think I am just confused.

Squeaks has the solution. Chill out and eat peppermint patties!!

Hopefully by the end of the day I will have a better idea of what I am up to.
Hope everyone is more Organized than I am.

Remember Sis--Don't Show Mom!!!

I really did get a Christmas present done in January!
Woo Hoo!!!
The rest of you can show your mom's. Shout it from the rooftops!!!

He was a serious challenge I have to say, normally I really like doing paper piecing and once I got his face done I was OK.
No pain, no gain right????
I had planned on rolling out my plan for this month today, but they called me and asked me to work so off I went. I do have some ideas so hopefully I will show them off soon.
Hope everyone had a productive, fun weekend.

Wednesday is Snow Day!!

We have had two in a row!
It is kind of fun to watch and it is all very pretty

and the boy and his dog had a good time.
Once they could get out the back door.

Two weeks in a row sewing day that Lola and I planned got snowed out.
I did use my time wisely and spent a lot of time working on my One Christmas Present a Month.
Murphy helped me finish it up yesterday with 5 hours to spare.
He slept under what I was doing instead of on it--isn't that helpful.
Now silly me forgot to take a final finished photo so I will so it off tomorrow.
Just don't show Mom!!!!

Forever in my Heart

My sweet CeCe left us recently.
She was 18, so she graced our lives for a very long time.

My quality control 

 Or just morale support

My comic relief


And all around cuddle buddy.

Miss you!

Last Thoughts of Indy

Vacation already seems like ancient history.
Never long enough!
Here are a couple more of the quilt gardens that we saw on the Heritage Trail.
These are also history now as I think they were only up through Oct 5th.
There were also lots of murals scattered about.
Even the coffee shop has a 9-patch on their sign.
Now for the rest of the purchases. This was one of the fun places I shopped.
I can't remember what I bought here; that is really sad, but here are all of my goodies.



That food one is for a new point of view. Hubby was born in the Midwest so thought I might find something in there that would make him say Mmmmmmmm!
Like the one on the cover. OMG!
So, I have been reminded so many times lately how soon Christmas will be here so I had better stop fighting with these photos and go use some of the things that I bought.
Sew, Sew, Sew!!!!
It is windy and rainy out there--I think it is the perfect sewing weather as long as the power stays on.
Happy Wednesday everybody!!
