...as if we didn’t have enough already! Just as we have discovered our driveway underneath all the snow and ice and finally get it cleared, we get more snow – typical. The weather forecasters have said that we will get about 4 - 6 inches today (sorry Mr. Weatherman but there’s that on the ground already and it’s only 9am) and that tonight/tomorrow will bring a rather large storm with at least a foot of snow. YUK. The only good thing about the snowstorm is that the kids (ok, I’ve only got one at school now and she’s technically not a kid, she’s a teenager) should get a snow day tomorrow and we can cuddle up and watch a movie and I can stitch.
I spent yesterday faffing around with the stitching of the German Shepherd. I decided not to make it in to a card as it was a rather large piece for a card so instead I made a wall plaque ‘thingy’! Having never done this before it was rather challenging, but actually very enjoyable!
The only trouble was that because I hadn’t thought this out beforehand, the fabric was actually just a tad shorter than it should have been – moral of the story, always think things through thoroughly, or maybe just use more fabric than necessary, just in case! Anyway, I was really pleased with the result. The only thing I need now is some cording to edge the stitching. My plan was to go to Michael's or JoAnn’s today, but there is no way I’m driving a twenty mile round trip in this snow for a $5 spool of cord. So, unfortunately, you won’t see the finished piece for another few days!
Well, I’m off to grab a snow shovel and see if I can find my driveway!
Until next time…happy stitching.
