A record 12.2 inches of snow fell yesterday. This is a view out the back door and as you can see, the bald cypress is quite laden with the snowfall. It's very beautiful, and the school districts have given the children a snow day. I expect to see quite a few sledders out on the street later on. The temperatures have not been brutal, hovering at a a degree or so above freezing. This means driving will not be a problem. Our street is quite clear. The county trucks came through yesterday afternoon and laid down salt, which is very productive when the temperatures are at or near freezing. I took advantage of the weather to sew some yesterday and here is the result.
A white border goes on today and then prairie points. I am itching to make some blocks ala Victoria Wolfe's "15 Minutes of Play." Charlie, the newest cat, entertained himself yesterday playing in the scrap box. This alerted me to the fact that there is quite a bit in the box right now and a peek at the Material Obsession blog this morning gave me the idea to whip up a few of Wolfe's scrappy blocks.
