Here is another scanner image of the Crazy quilt project. I did a little beading & embroidery on it last night. I used an old lens from Aunt Ethel's glasses to cover an old-fashioned picture, then captured the whole thing with beads. To the right of that I did a row of satin stitching with Pearle cotton & a big needle. My hands were cramping when I got finished with that. To the left is a row of bumpy yarn that I stitched down & added a row of stone beads.
We spent a quiet evening watching DVDs, as the Chinook wind was blowing & the satellite dish is useless in the high winds. It looks like tonight will be more of the same.
We have gone from sub-zero temps, to 49 degrees. The hill was an icy toboggan run yesterday. I went to go down the hill, creeping out of my driveway at under 5 MPH, slid into the ditch on the right, managed to pull myself out..spun 2 full circles, ending up in the ditch on the left, then backed out into a neighbor's driveway. She has it plowed like a large parking lot, so I pulled in, & (thankfully I was smart enough to wear my crampons), & I hiked back home. I called the hospital & let them know that I wasn't going to make it in. Warren had to hike a mile from the bottom of the hill to get home. It was a good thing he didn't have to work last night too.
