Where'd My Snow GO?

That's right, I said snow.

We were supposed to get hit this weekend beginning Saturday night and into Sunday - they were calling for up to 4 inches, and maybe a bit more on Monday morning. Well...

It didn't come - okay perhaps a few areas around got a dusting, but not here. I was a little disappointed.

Ok. A lot disappointed, because it would have been very nice to possibly get one last snow day before the nice weather hit - especially since the leading edge of this storm created havoc in my back. Saturday was so pain-filled that I had a devil's time getting any sewing done, and mostly spent the day on muscle relaxers and the heat! If it's going to be this bad, I want the white stuff that causes it!
Well, today was better - in the pain department, anyway - but it's back to being really cold. Boo-hoo!

I did manage to get a few things made this weekend, though. I started with some Fair Isle items in red and white:
(that's an Oressa needle case, a drawstring bag, and a large zippered baglet)

And today I proceeded to make up this new sheep fabric:

There's a large Sidekick bag, an Oressa, a drawstring bag, and a large baglet up there in that shot. Isn't that fabric a riot? I knew I had to have it; I knew my knitters would have to have it - a knitting sheep (or six or ten) tossed all over that black background...

My assistants were too chilly to be of much help this weekend, and spent most of it hunkered down in front of the Great God of HEAT:

The Meezer was curled up with The Tonk, but the second I went for the camera, he was up and following me...I think TM is saying "Where'd my hot pack go?"

I'm sorry that the cold hit you so hard, without any of the side benefits of a snow day! That just seems very unfair. It looks like you were really productive in spite of that, though - those are some great bags :) (And you're right - knitters will snap up those sheep!)

Oh, believe me, at this point we are celebrating cold days WITHOUT snow! Over 4 solid months of not seeing our lawns - I am so ready for winter to be over. Or at least the snow!

And that Fair Isle fabric just might convert me to a drawstring lover...

Sorry you have been in pain.
You do seem to have gotten a lot done though--even if your helpers abandoned you. I would be like The Meezer--plastered to the side of the heater.
My husband likes it so cool at night--that I have to use a heating pad to get my side of the bed warm enough to sleep.

Great fabrics! I already have one of almost-each of your bags, but I can always dream greedily! Did I already tell you I would send you some snow? Luckily, it is melting rapidly and I can see daffodils blooming today.

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
