Yes, another storm. Second one this week and this one left a good dumping of the white stuff. There must have been a little freezing rain over night too because the snow was heavy. Grrrrr, enough already! This is getting to be a bit much.
Millie gets a bit distressed when the snow is deep enough to disappear in. In my defense, it was deeper than it looked when I put her out to pee. Poor little girl. The look on her face when she sank to her neck......
So I had to bundle her up in a heated blanket and she got some extra treats to win her heart again. Within an hour she had forgiven me. And next time to took her out I had the step shoveled off.
Since my snow plow didn't arrive today, and the snow continued and fall and blow around, there was nowhere to go - so no excuse not to hook all afternoon. I ordered this pattern from Vintage Heart Primitives and it arrived last week - "Here's My Heart". I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it. I hooked the Mom and daughter first and then grabbed a piece of wool for the background
Now I need to come clean here. Perhaps it's all the snow and bad weather that is making me stupid. Or maybe I'm just plain stupid because I looked at the piece of wool for the background and I knew it wasn't enough. And I knew I didn't have anymore. And yet......I started using it anyway. Duhhhh!!
It's time to out it down for the night and try to decide my next step. The chances of me finding another piece of this wool are slim to none. But none the less, it felt great to have nothing to do all day but sit and hook. (OK, it's not like I had nothing else to do.....I just chose not to do anything else. Lol)
Time to knit for a short while until Downton Abbey comes on TV. This season hasn't been the greatest (in my opinion) but last weeks episode was much better.
