Snowstorm and Projects

Well the weatherman was right for a change. We got our predicted 20" of snow here in SW PA. I was at work. (I work at a local hospital) and had to have DH come and get me at 1 AM when I finally gave in and declared I couldn't get my car out of the parking lot. I grew up in NW PA so loads of snow is nothing new to me. So I was giving it the old college try and driving home. They had plowed all of us in our parking spaces in an attempt to keep the ER entrances open. I could get so far and then the van (Dodge Caravan) sat on top of the snow and could not go. Lucky for me my replacement showed up and I could leave. Others were not so lucky and were mandated to stay-not that they could have gone anyways. But DH came and got me and here I sit working on projects all day. (Happy face)
Here are some of the photos I took today. This is our backyard from my bedroom window. You don't think I was going out do you????????

DH shoveling.

The side of our driveway.

This is a big thing here. They don't get snow like this often. Most things were shut down last night and this morning. We went and dug my van out this afternoon. DH is so nice he dug out other hospital personnel while we were there.
Of course we needed a new picture of the stone house in the snow. That rod iron fence in the front is a 3 ft fence.

Here's another on going project that I'm loving how it is coming out.

The bottom penny is 1 1/4" the middle penny is 1/2" and the center is 1/4". It's small to work with but I'm lovin it. I finished cutting out some more pennys last night at work SHHHHHHHHH don't tell. But I hate to sit and do nothing if there's no patients so I always have something to work on. I took 2 tan wool skirts to take apart to felt. They are all ready for the washer.

The snow is beautiful. I'm just glad I don't have to go out in it. I'm settling in for a rather cold night with my new "make do" flannel quilt to finish reading some blogs.........Nice and toasty warm. I'm very thankful tonight for my family being safe, DH and his helpfulness and thoughtfulness for others and God's provisions for our family.

Love, love, love your new project. It's so pretty! All that nice makes it a perfect time to stay inside and sew.

Look at that snow! It's practically spring here... almost flip flop weather!!!

And yes, prayers are what we're depending on these days with our youngest!

Thanks so much for your kind words, Rhonda!

Stay warm! Kimberly
