I was amazed to see that the last time I blogged
was also when it snowed!
We don't get snow that often,
but this year seems to be an extreme,
and it's snowed twice now in two weeks.
That said, the forecasters are saying we will have ice tomorrow.
I'd rather have snow!
(This is not our house! I snapped this on
the main thoroughfare through our little town
as I was heading home from PT this noon.)
I've been very busy,
not only at home,
but seeing doctors and my new best friend:
my fabulous physical therapist Kristi!
We've only had 2 sessions, but I'm already
moving my arms like a pro!
Artwise, I've been consumed with paper-piecing hearts:
The top heart has since had borders added,
and both hearts have been quilted.
My intent is to make more blocks and then
make a small quilt for the grand cherubs.
Note: that is my intent!!!
You can find some great paper-piecing designs here.
I've also been knitting a lot!
I think I shared with you the hat that I knit for Maggie.
She didn't like it:
But her MaMa did:
So now I'm starting another new hat for Maggie…
and one for Charlie too!
I also finished these wonderful socks
The yarn is Foxfire Fiber & Designs
and it is a delight to hold in your hands!
The pattern is Catching Fish
by Penny Schumers.
We had an art date last Friday
to the High Museum.
We hadn't been since I started chemo,
so it was great to be back.
The Wild West exhibit is awesome.
I learned a lot about Frederick Remington,
N.C. Wyeth, and many others.
There is also a great printmakers show running
at the High right now.
I fell in love with one phenomenal piece by
Her work has so much depth!
You can see more of her work here.
My friend Gerrie Congdon had urged me to do
some snow-dyeing when we last had frozen precip.
I never got around to it,
so this afternoon, I thought I'd take advantage.
Here's how things are looking right now:
I've just heard that we're supposed to get
another 3-5" tomorrow,
so there may actually be more snow-dyeing in
the near future!
thanks for dropping by!
peace to you and yours
