Snow and more Snow!

Snow! It is becoming the nasty 4 letter word no one wants to say anymore. We have over 30 inches and more is coming. Yuck! I took some pictures from my side door. Later in the afternoon the stuff turned into ice and I saw one of my neighbors go sliding down the street.

This stop sign is in middle of a huge pile of snow. It just keeps getting bigger and bigger. In the backround, can you see the the height of the snow on the sidewalk? It a little hard to see.
This is why, I cant open the door! The snow is pack against the door and I had to take the pictures through the glass door. Here is another picture.

I have been stitching on Lizzie Kate Cat Lessons for People for a friend's birthday. I hope to have it done so I can finish it off and send out to him.

I did work on my Dragon UFO piece last week. I put in another 368 stitches. I could see the difference from last week. I will be working on it on Wednesday during American Idol. I dont have to pay too much attention and just listen to the people trying to get in. I already have a couple of favorites. One sings just like Josh Turner and the other like an angel.
I did start stitching LHN Under the Tree. It is an ornament I wanted to finish in January. I have a couple exchanges to do and a couple gifts before I can go back to it. Probably in March, when I am in Virginia. I understand they dont have snow but I could be wrong, at least, not by Newport News as of last Saturday.
Thank you so much for stopping by. If I can get to Joanne's this coming week. I will be doing a giveaway on a LHN pattern. That is the only hint you will get until I post it.

Many stitches to you,

nice stitching. We got a lot of snow last night too, they even closed factories and sent people home and no school today.

WOW! So much snow and more coming. I'm sure you all are beyond tired of that stuff. The cold and snow like what you are dealing with is what drove my parents to move to sunny Florida over 20 years ago.

Stitching is looking beautiful. Hope you get some down time to sit and get more stitching done. With all that snow and yuck, I can't imagine anyone is going to work or anywhere else for that matter.

I am so glad we didn't get that awful stuff this time. :) The ice was bad enough. I hope you are getting some more stitching done while you are stuck inside. :) Your stitching updates look fabulous.

Congrats on your finish, you WIP looks great! You are right snow is becoming a nasty word. We had ice, sleet, snow and a layer of ice in the storm that gave you so much. Danville got about 8 inches in that mess. Now we are in the middle of another snow storm that could last til Monday. I can honestly say this is the snowiest winter Central Illinois has had since my husband and I moved here in December 1990.

Shhh, please do not mention that ugly 4 letter word! Think no snow and pray the rodents are right and spring comes soon. Great stitching!
