Last of Starts, YOTA and Snow!

I did not start 31 projects for Debbie's Ultimate Crazy Challenge but I did come close with 26 new starts. I am not sure how I missed 5, but I do know when I do this next year, I will be a bit more organized.   Now my job is to get some finishes. Here are the last 5 new starts:

 Lizzie Kate Boxer Cinderella is Proof
 LHN The Farmer's Daughter  
The picture is side ways.
 LHN Calendar Girls September

 LHN Calendar Girls December
I have completed LHN Calendar Girls January, February and March last year and I have April almost 2/3rds is almost done.  I have not start November.  The lettering is in 3 colors, so I might find an Autumn variegated thread to do the lettering.  

I have been stitching on Angie's SAL. Fleurs de Ciel.  I am almost done with the second flower.  I hope to have it done tonight and maybe start on the third one.  I need to have Part one done by March 10.  So Fleurs will be my main focus until I get the part done.

I do not have a progress on my YOTA SAL.  YOTA is being hosted by Pulled the Other Thread.  I read on one of the other blogs that the stitcher stitches on her piece for 30 minutes a day.  I will try to do that myself, because it is a good idea and I do want to get some of my UFOs done. Hopefully I will have a progress report on March 7.

It has been snowing so badly here in my world! The last 2 Mondays, my classes have been cancelled due to these snowstorms.  First was a blizzard and the govern put a travel ban on Connecticut highways.  The second storm gave us another 10 inches.  Tonight we are getting another storm and it won't be stopping until late Monday night.  They are predicting another 10 inches with this storm.  I may have tomorrow off too but I won't find out until 5:30 in the morning.  I know I will have to make up the days soon and they will be on a Friday or Saturday.  My teacher thinks most likely on a Saturday.  School on a Saturday! Boy, that will be so weird! Here is some pictures of the lovely white stuff.

 It was snowing on one of the last 2 snowstorms when I took the pictures.  I believe it was just starting.

 This pile of snow is right outside my kitchen window.  My window is above the kitchen sick. So that pile is very huge! 
 The snow on the left side of my patio.

This is from the right side of the patio.  Another big pile in the corner. 

Thank you so much for stopping by and looking at my blog.  

Until next time,

Your Fleurs looks great Vicky! You have definitely got us beat in the snow department and I am not even mad about that! LOL We too had storms the last two weeks and my grandson had no school. Hope the storm this week doesn't do to much damage for you.

It will be so fun to watch your new starts "bloom" into existence! Your pictures are exactly why we decided to retire in Florida! ��

That is a large amount of snow. I hope you are all staying safe and warm in the terrible weather. Your stitching is just wonderful. Hopefully you will have some time to work on those UFOs for next update.

Wow, that's a lot of snow, it might be even a couple of inches more than we have. BUt yesterday it started to melt and I'm so glad about it.
Very nice new starts for the challenge. 26 is also nice round number of pieces that you started.

You have some great starts there. Keep up the great stitching.
Wish there was a way that you could send us some of your snow & that we could you some of our warmth.
