A Bit Better Today
As you can see by looking at yesterday's post and today's, it is a bit better weather wise in Western New York. The unofficial snow fall total in our back yard for just yesterday was 30 inches. My daughter is missing a day of work today because she couldn't travel back home yesterday. I have to admit, I was glad to keep her one more day. The snow is beautiful to look at, but horrid to drive in.
Today I am planning on ironing, blocking and photographing two of my new projects to put on Etsy. I've done the Scandinavian embroidery called Hardanger for years. It was put aside when I started getting serious about making jewelry. Since I have a stockpile of earrings,necklaces and bracelets just sitting here it was a good time to bring out the sewing again. As with all avid crafters, I had several unfinished projects in various stages of completion. I've finished two and there's one more in the works. I can't wait to show them to you! On our heroic trip to the craft stores last Saturday I found colored thread that is going to turn into a Dutch blue on white and a Swedish red on white mat. Oh my, so many projects... so little time!
