Well, the weather here has been quite the topic. Today was the 4th day this week with school cancelled due to snow. This cartoon says it all!
Day 1, I went into the sewing room and worked like crazy. So much fun! Day 2, I began losing steam, but finished the projects of Day 1. This was really against my grain as I wanted to start a new project each day, but I am so happy to have these little guys done.
Pattern is Effie and Ollie Elephant by Heather Bailey. Now to choose one to put into a pincushion swap at The Quilt Asylum. Day 3, I awoke the girls early so as to keep somewhat of a schedule, and paid the price ALL day long. Teens can be so annoying. Day 4, I avoided the lioness' dens completely and retreated into the sewing room adding sashing to some blocks on the design wall, simply hiding from the kids and avoiding looking out the windows at our captor. Photos to come when I remember to carry the camera upstairs.
In an act of desperation, D. has bought us a Wii and Just Dance 2. An attempt to keep us entertained and burning off some of the calories that we've been consuming while creating sweets in the kitchen. I don't know if we are burning more calories dancing or laughing at each others attempts!
So far, I guess that we are fairing pretty well, but really, I am over the snow.
Oh, and just last Saturday, yes, back when it was 70+ degrees outside, we celebrated my Grandmothers 90th birthday! Such a firecracker she is. Happy Birthday, Grandma!
