Lesson learned. Usually I don't let myself get all worked up by the weather forecasts. But they were all so sure and hyped up about the 'snowmageddon' of North Alabama, that I bought into it. I mean gosh ... GROCERY STORES closed their doors EARLY last night in anticipation of the event. Plus we'd already had a lovely dusting that they *weren't* expecting on Tuesday morning . . .
So, against my better judgment, I bought into it. Serves me right . . . I am SO disappointed!! We woke up this morning to *nothing* ... blah ... and now it's raining ... blah. And while they continue to pitch the snow, it continues to rain. Again, blah. Blah, blah, BLAH!!!
On a (much) brighter note, I not only finished piecing my snowflake . . .
(Yes, that's the actual, not a photoshop illusion!) I also went ahead and got it quilted and bound!
My quilting was some very simple stitch-in-the-ditch quilting around the snowflake and the outer pieces. With sparkly thread. :) I'm calling it Midnight Snow. It's all the snow I've got. LOL!
I've also made some progress on my Celtic knot garden . . .
Working on the hedge knots, now. Tedious, but it'll be worth it in the end! One thing I quickly learned with the colonial knot is that shorter working thread is better. I'm working a line of the hedges until I catch up to myself. Then I'll start the other side. I have to admit, I'm looking forward to getting to the French knots!
