Strange Weather

In my last post I promised pictures of the snow, so here they are!

First, a picture taken from Ryan's window of one of the garden areas:

This is between downpours.

Here's the same area, less than 24 hours later. It continued to snow for about five more hours.

Here's the neighbors' dogwood with snow:

And a view from front porch during a slight lessening of the snow:

And finally, Greg's truck. By the time the snow stopped, there was about 9" of snow on the hood of his truck.

By Sunday afternoon almost every bit of it was gone and it was 70º! I saw kids throwing snowballs at each other while wearing short-sleeved shirts.


In other happenings, I made some progress on my Monkey socks:

And here's one of them on my leg:

I'm ready to start the heel as soon as I finish this pattern repeat.


I'm also testing a pattern for a friend on Ravelry. They're about twice as long as in this picture and I'm really enjoying this design.


A while back I participated in the Crop Scene Investigation that was sponsored by some scrapbook-supply companies. It turns out I won one of the weekly drawings, and here's my prize:

The item on the left is a cleaning tool and I'm looking forward to using it quite a lot! It sweeps up small things like glitter, small pieces of paper, etc and if I can steal it back from Ryan I'll get a lot of use from it.

The item on the right is for un-sticky-ing things like stickers and pop dots. I'm not sure how much I'll use that, since that's not usually something I do, but we'll see. :-)


I've been hard at work on a customer's quilt and hopefully I'll remember to take some pictures to post before she picks it up. :-)


I hope all of you are having a great week!
