Our area had our coldest night yet last night.
I know... not as cold as areas north of us. But it's colder than we normally have.
The snow drops are growing...
They obviously don't care that spring is still a month away. That the yard is still mostly covered in snow. That's there's more snow to come. That it's still cold. Rosie doesn't even stay out long... She is back inside in mere seconds of setting foot outside.
She sits in her chair. Keeping an eye of everyone and everything. Barking at every truck that goes by and at the wind every time it howls.
Today, I'm hoping to get back to stitching some crazy quilt stitcheries. My Bible has a crack in the spine and I want to cover it so it doesn't get worse. I'm trying something... If it doesn't work, I'll do something else.
Here's on of the stitcheries...
Sorry for the picture quality... It's a not-so-great cell phone picture...
I forgot to couch those stems, so I have to go back and do that. And now you get an up-close and personal look at my lacking embroidery skills. :)
I haven't touched any stitching/sewing/quilting for a week and a half... I've been spending time on the phone with insurance adjusters (about 6 at last count), because at the beginning of last week my Step-Father was in a pretty serious accident. He's been improving as he's in the area's BEST trauma unit and he's being covered with heartfelt prayers. I've been praying so hard it hurts and may have yelled at God a time or two. Those are the prayers that are hardest to end with "Thy will be done."
Time to work on some stitching before the next round of phone calls and schoolwork start.
Have a good day. And Happy Stitching!
