Snow Arrived

  We had rain most of the day and then it turned to snow. Looking out my back door at the trees in my back yard. I don't know how much we have got except when they pushed my street they filled the end of my driveway. I don't need to go to any place. I have talked to hubby a couple of times so far today. He was watching it snow. We are in a winter advisory until 9 o'clock. Some of the Super Bowl parties might be a little hard to get to.
    A couple of my Valentine tea towels. My From My Heart towel will be going to a new home if I can get to the post office tomorrow. I have to be able to get out of my driveway, but then it will probably be plowed later this afternoon. 
   My next project will take me a little while because I have been commissioned to do a lap quilt for a lady. It requires changing colors quite a bit so I just use more needles and keep them threaded until I get it done. 
   My other heart has a little bit of a three dimension look to it. My pattern slid just a bit and I am happy with how it turned out. 
   My grandson's team won their ballgame yesterday 18-4. I didn't go because it was raining and the parking is something else. I also didn't have enough time to get there. When you have to deal with stop lights, and they have adjusted the timing on them, you never know how long you will have to wait for them to turn. He didn't get released by the physical therapist on Friday.
   If you have to travel, please be safe. I know my limitations when the weather turns bad. I don't want anyone worrying about me. They just make sure that I don't need anything. I went to the store and bought groceries so I am good. I have food for sandwiches if the electricity should happen to go out. I know how to turn on my faucet so the water line won't freeze and I know what to do to stay warm.
   Are you going to watch the Super Bowl? Do you have a favorite team playing? I like to watch the commercials and I really like the new Budweiser commercial with the puppy. It is so cute. 
   Well I need to get back to work on my lap quilt.

You sound very content with being snowed in. The weather has been all over the place. I swear they don't know what is going to happen. My daughter in Colorado said they were to get 1 1/2 inches but got 7 1/2 inches. Ours keep changing. We got several inches last night and the plow has not come at all. There must be trouble on the man roads for them not to have come up here. We are supposed to be on the line for lots of rain and snow. I don't want rain as it will freeze. It's currently 35 and who knows.
Glad your hubby is doing okay.
That's a big win. We haven't made it to any games this week-end. Definetly not today. We did get out yesterday for lunch anyway.
I'm glad that your family checks on you My mom is 2 hours away and not near any family. She is 88 and stubborn.
Have a quiet Sunday. Good luck with all those projects.

Shirley, It seems you know how to be safe when it's nasty out. I hope you are snowed in for long. I can wait it out a few days...But then I feel it would be so nice to go out, even if it's a hamburger lunch. Blessings to you and yours. xoxo,Susie
p.s. love your embroidery.

Make sure you show us pictures of the lap quilt, Shirley. And yes, I love to watch the super bowl for the commercials. I love the one with the puppy and horses too. I hope you don't lose electricity. But it sounds like you have things under control, just in case. Take care!

Our son lives in Brooklyn and was prepared for the historic storm...which turned out to be a whole lot of nothing...except he did enjoy a day off of work, sledding with friends! Glad you are safe and ready for what may come your way. =)

Hi Shirley
That storm blew up here to Northern Indiana and dumped about 16 inches of snow at my house. Schools and lots of businesses are closed.

Love your valentine stitching.
xx, Carol

Hi Shirley! I love your stitchery, so pretty. We only got around an inch or so of snow at our house. Most of the schools in the area were closed today and I don't know why. The kids today seem to get to stay home a lot more often than they did when mine were in school.
I'm trying to get back to blogging. It's hard when you've been away awhile, but I've missed everyone. Take care and stay warm!

It actually looks quite beautiful from here. Hope you stayed safely inside.

Your valentine stitching is truly lovely.
