All Gone!

Our snow is all gone except for this little bit. The good news is that the plants seem to have survived the cold!

Warmer temperatures and the rain helped a lot.

 One day recently, after we had walked in the rain,the skies cleared and we had a beautiful sunset.

 A few days ago I got a surprise package in the mail, this beautiful table runner that was crocheted by my friend Becca.  She knows that I love anything with hearts.  Isn't it lovely?


Nothing else to report.  My current projects are coming along but won't be finished any time soon.  We'll see whether I can finish something totally different this week!

Lots More Snow!

We had a crazy weekend! The snow started on Friday with little flurries on our walk, but then the snow got serious. By Saturday evening we probably had a foot of snow which is really unusual for this part of the world! Here's what our backyard looked like:

Can you see the bird bath? There have been no birds in sight for the last couple of days!

The Holly looks kind of Christmasy, doesn't it?

However this little rose looks pretty sad!

The last time it snowed this much was in January of 2019, and our neighbor made this chair. Someone who saw it recently said it needs Bernie! I got a good laugh at that. But our neighbor didn't make another chair this time; she and her husband and my DH helped shovel out enough of our driveway so that an uphill neighbor could park her car here since she couldn't get up the hill to her house. Me, I've not been outside since our walk in the snow on Friday. I've been cooking more than usual and doing a bit of counted X-stitch and piecing a quilt for a change!


 It sounds like the weather everywhere isn't very nice. My sister lives in MN and it's been really cold there, and the news says it's even pretty frigid as far south as Texas!  So, wherever you are at the moment, I hope you're staying warm.

Crazy Weather Here!

 This morning we woke up to a little snow, but it's almost gone now.

The snow was a surprise although it's predicted for later in the week. Having been drenched on our walk the day before and the evening ended in a beautiful sunset, yesterday we set out under blue skies!

And on top of a nearby hill, we even had a great view of Seattle! Can you see the Space Needle? It's there, but hard to see!

But most surprising of all were the flowers that have popped up in our garden! (Today I'll have to check to see how they are after the snow.)

 I love primroses and Helebore because they are early signs of spring!
Not really much of anything crafty to show today; I am working on the SAHHR quilt and actually went through my cross stitch stash. Oh my, there's way more there than I remembered. And then there's the fabric and yarn supplies.  Gotta go get busy, right?
