I realize that those of you in the Northeast will snort, but this is a lot of snow to us. Even friends here that know we're going to Ft. Drum, NY next year are laughing at us. Since the boys had the day off from school we went sledding with some friends and will probably go back out before dinner. It's supposed to keep up for the next week. What fun!
I'm really excited about Operation: Take A Soldier To The Movies and really appreciate the comments and emails I got from everyone. Don't worry... you'll be hearing a lot about this program once we get things moved over to Dan's office and I get more information. We're moving all the stuff over to Dan's office on Tuesday and meeting for lunch.
A fun package arrived from Copper Moose yesterday! Full of fiber samples to play with when my drum carder arrives. There's angora, camel, cashmere, alpaca and kid mohair. The wait for the carder is killing me but probably for the best until I get the Must Have finished.
Speaking of... I'm just a few rows shy of finishing the back. Had to frog back the same column again. I should have taken a photo this time. Not to worry, I'm sure I'll screw up again. There'll be plenty more photo ops. I made it a little longer than the directions call for so that it fall right about mid-hip. As soon as I finish the last triangle, the back is finished.
I pulled my embroidery machine out yesterday to make a Christening bib for some friends who go to our Parish. This is their fifth child. I found an embroidery design at Stitchery Mall that does the bib all in the hoop and I found a free Chi Rho pattern to stitch onto the bib in a metallic gold and silver thread. It came out really pretty I think.
Daniel's Factoid: Fossil fuels are called that because over many millions of years, heat from teh Earth's core and pressure from rock and soil have reacted with the fossils of dead plants and animals to form fuel.
