Snow & Stash Busting Report

We received about 8 inches of snow and the winds produced some good drifts. Here's a couple of pictures of our driveway area and deck. Jim cleared most of the driveway this afternoon after the winds died down. Tonight he found the deck. Although this is a lot of snow for this time of year nowadays, I remember storms that made walls of snow on either side of the driveway when the tractor cleared a path. The schools are all closed for tomorrow. Can you hear all of the children in the area yelling with excitement?

I'm not sure if I gained any ground again this week with my stash busting. Does the fabric bought for The Clothesline Club projects count against me? I cut and stitched 80 nine patches for Step 3 of Bonnie's mystery, I made a string block to send to Mary in MN, three teddy bears for my sewing buddies, and a pillowcase all from my stash. However, I did buy the current kit plus an extra yard of fabric for TCC projects.

Beautiful pictures of the snow! Really is starting to look as though it will be a white Christmas this year.

It sounds like you were very productive!!! Thanks for sharing the show photos... reminds me of when I was a kid and we'd occasionally get a big storm in KY. I miss the snow. Here where we are, it is hard to get in the Christmas sprit with such warm weather. Yesterday it was in the 70s.

Merry Christmas from Texas! ~Bonnie

The snow pictures look so pretty...we've only had a dusting of snow, not the same feeling.

Sounds like you've taken advantage of being snowed in to get a lot done!

sounds like you are doing well to me. Just the fact that nothing came in your house is a good accomplishment!

I envy you that snow. At least we got some this year - all of about 1/4".
