Seriously?! One day was 56F and by 5pm the next day, I came home to a 28" snowdrift in front of my garage door. Do you think my neighbors on either side had snow in their driveways? Noooo. Two and a half hours later, I had the drift chopped down and the driveway cleared of snow. It was so cold that my breath kept fogging my glasses so I had to take them off. Talk about a blind person trying to clear snow!
I was so cold, my thighs were bright red. Even a hot bath didn't warm me up... it just thawed me out a little. After sitting under the electric blanket for 45 minutes, I finally became warm enough but my entire body was so sore!

Happy Dance! Happy Dance! As part of the Ornament SAL, I stitched and finished my January ornament. This is my 2nd finish of 2012.
Designer: Stitching the Night Away
Fabric: 22ct Red Hardanger
Fibers: DMC, Carries Creations
Embellishments: Runched Ribbon, Beads, Buttons
I changed the colors, added snowflakes, and added the beads and buttons. It turned out so adorable! I used my mag eyes and it made a world of difference in stitching on such a small fabric count.
Normally, I'm not a big fan of stitching on red. But, Vicky of Nutmegger Stitcher's Works recently finished a snowman ornament on red so I decided to try it.
When I wasn't stitching on the snowman, I stitched on JG. It's coming right along. I finished the bamboo stalks and water under the bridge near the 9 o'clock garden.
I received some distressing news yesterday. My 15yr old nephew was involved in a freak snowmobile accident over the weekend. He was competing in a snowcross event (like motorcross, but with snowmobiles) and ended up 20-25 feet in the air. He landed on his back and has fractured three of his vertebrae. He will be OK, but he will have a long painful recovery.
