Happy Valentine’s Day

 

After a long, long wait, we finally started getting some snow mid-afternoon.  By dark, it was coming down pretty well.  The forecast continued to be for 2-4 inches, but we got just an inch or so.  The grass is just barely covered, the roads appear to be clear (although the driveways and sidewalks are snow-covered), and the trees and bushes are snow-covered … so pretty.  All in all, it was another teaser snow.  It’s beginning to look like we’re not going to get a “real” snow this winter.  Sad smile 

 

While it was snowing, I was in the sewing room, stitching together the last of the pieced blocks.  If I counted correctly, I have finished the pieced blocks … I need 95.  Today I hope to be able to start cutting out the solid white blocks.  If not today, definitely tomorrow.

 

The reason that I may not get any cutting done today is that I get to have some T time today.  Red heart  I’ll be at DD’s in the middle of the day … she’s got a hair cut appointment, so I’ll watch the Ts.   

 

Because of the snow, we cancelled small group last night … so I got to watch Westminster.  I watch it every year … I love seeing all the different dogs - and seeing the dog commercials, especially those Subaru dog-tested, dog-approved commercials.  I can’t wait for tonight’s show … because we’ve owned labs (mixes and purebred) and a golden, we’re especially partial to the sporting group dogs.

  1. Wile sitting in the office waiting to get my taxes done I was watching PBS on their TV. It was a "Sewing with Nancy" episode and she was working on a beautiful quilt with shades of blue - made me think of you!

  3. I love the dog show too. It just amazes me all of the breeds of dogs. I hope at least some of your snow sticks. Your quilt takes 95 blocks? Wow,
    Have fun with your Grands, it sounds like a nice day. I will have all six here on Friday. I am gearing up. :) They do play pretty good together but I have to keep my eyes peeled.
    Have a lovely day So glad you posted I Cor. 13 it really is what love is about. Not what society sees as love.

  4. No snow here at all, it did warm up however to 21! I'm OK with no snow. I like the dog shows as well. Have fun with the T's.

  5. While you seem to be missing out on the snow, we've been missing out on rain. We finally got a small shower of rain this morning. Yay for washing the pollen away!

    Have a Happy Valentine's Day!

  7. At least you got the dusting. We can't even get more than two days of cold temps. I know we don't usually get snow but, every once in a while we do get a little bit. Not this year. Not even cold weather. I feel cheated!

    Have fun today!

  8. Happy Valentine's Day to you! I pray you get more snow, a real dumping, and are able to work on your blocks. WE are headed to Calif. for a week so I won't be by but know you'll be in my thoughts.
    Hugs, Noreen

  9. I really wish we'd get some snow. The meteorologists have teased us a couple of times, but it hasn't happened. :(

I am SO glad you stopped by! No proving that you're a robot here ... I want to hear what you have to say! ;-)
