Snowstorm Dana

Here is the start of snowstorm Dana yesterday.  I was going to be very diligent and take pictures every hour or so to show you the build up, but not too long after this picture the wind started in and nothing stayed anywhere except me!  We ended up with huge drifts sculpted like modern art, and bare spots on the lawn so it's pretty hard to tell how much we actually got.  Enough for a school delay which I have already morphed into a snow day since the driveway drifted shut an hour after it was plowed.
This is the cat on a snow day......
and no, I haven't gotten any further on the wine bottle wall hanging, thank you so much for pointing that out!

And the dog on a snow day.......

And lucky lucky me on the snow day!  I got mail 2 days ago which didn't get opened!!!  WOOT!
My newest book by Laura!!!!  yippeee!  I want to try some of her cool stitching on some of my smaller things.  I love the vibrant colors soooooooo MUCH!  And the whimsy of her designs, so fun!

And I got this adorable apron pattern too!  I had planned to open it up and use it, but it's in such lovely shape and protected so well................  yeah, I went back on etsy and ordered a more used one for me to cut up!  Can you say ridiculous? 

Well I'm off to ignore the wind and do some sewing.  Hopefully there will be pictures later!

They named your snowstorm? Like a hurricane? Weird.

But at least you have awesome stuff to keep you occupied meanwhile.

We are looking at 8 inches here and you would think the world is coming to the end. BAH. It is such NOT a big deal.

That book is by your cousin that we met at the Quilt Fest? Oh, and do they not have the quilt fest in Chicago anymore? I heard a rumor.
