Dude....

Dude.....Where's my deck?
So, let's get this snow talk out of the way. 

These are figures from my dear husband, the Official National Weather Observer for Chalk Hill, PA:

Yesterday he measured 40 inches of snow on the ground (a new record).
In the month of February we received 96 inches of snow (another new record).
So far this winter, we've had 166 inches of snow (already a new record and there's more winter to come)

And this is him in all of his cuteness:
Even though this was yet another snow weekend from hell, I stitched a little on Lo.  It was a nice break between shoveling and staring into the grey/white/black landscape and feeling ultra gloomy.

So, I managed "Rose Blooming".

 
And during the week I put a few stitches into Family Medley.  Just a bit more wording and I'll be finished!  

See you next time!

  2. Geez, where is your deck? Holy cow! Your weather observer has been a busy boy. We keep having lots of little snows that don't amount to much, while the mountains get dumped on.

    I'm catching up after not reading for a while, and I'm sorry to hear about your family drama. A drama-free existence is my dream. Hope things are better.

  3. Yep. That's a lot of snow! I don't think I can shovel any more this season - so I hope we are done. Even the kids are sick of it and don't want to play in it anymore!

    Lovely stitching! I'm loving the spring look of "Rose Blooming".

  4. Do you even have a deck or are you just kidding us? LOL That is a whole lot of snow for the season this far! I hope that you don't get any more! WOW!

    Your Lo looks wonderful - has to be one of my favorite pieces even though I haven't stitched it yet. And Family Medley looks wonderful too!

  11. I don't even know what to say about all that snow and I live in Wisconsin!! Since this is my first winter in my home and I'm the chief snowshoveler, all I can say is how grateful I am that our winter has been mild. Just looking at your "deck" makes my heart sink!

  15. With all of that snow, did anyone make a Snowman or Snow Angel? Coz I know we haven't really had enough to even to that. With only one real accumulation (so far) we have been very fortunate to only have had to shovel out once or twice and the plows just got attatched to the trucks last week. Wow with all of the winter pictures you have to share it feels like it will never leave your area I bet. Don't worry, you will be able to stitch on the deck soon.
    Be always in stitches.

  16. Isn't it amazing that you had double the amount of snow that we had in February, Lee, and yet we live less than two hours apart! I can't even imagine dealing with that much--you guys must have really strong muscles from all of that shoveling :)

    It looks like you might be finishing "Lo" just in time for the coming of Spring--how perfect. I just love its colors so much (are you used to the pink yet?) Great progress on Family Medley, too. At least the snow gives us a good excuse for sitting and stitching :)

  17. Yikes. That would make me very nervous. I don't like to feel closed in and I'd worry about how to get out of there... I bet you are sick to death of snow by now. Nice stitching though!

  18. OMG I don't think we have ever had that much snow at once. May I ask what you are using on the scroll frames to hold the fabric ?

  19. OMG that is a lot of snow!!!

    Your WIPs are lovely but I especially love the rose one. It's so pretty.

  20. Dude, wheres the picture of Dave's biceps??? LOL My arms are weak, I need to focus more on them before going to Honduras to build homes.
    So, do you want to come to Kansas early? 58 on Sunday. I've given thanks and praise to God for sunshine the last nine days.
    I can't thank you enough for wisdom, understanding, support, thoughts and emails the last few days. We've got to find that voodoo doll pattern!

  21. Holey calido that's a lot of snow. More than Portland, ME got in 2008 which was a killer year for snow. I hope it all melts away from your house in case you have a basement.... And Great stitching progress - I love both pieces you are working on.

  22. Jiminy crickets! That sure is a TON of snow! Love the WIPs--at least it gives you an excuse to hunker down and stitch, right!?

  23. OMG that's a crazy amount of snow. I'm scared just looking at it. Stay warm!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Oh my gosh! That looks crazy. We've had such an amount once this winter, usually it stayed somewhere around 15-20 inches. Last week the white stuff melted so continuously that we could see the green of the meadows again. But this morning greeted us with another 15 inches and it's still snowing. I think stitching words like "Blooming Rose" is the best you can do these days, lol.
    Very nice progress!
