At best estimate based on the snowfall of surrounding areas, we were graced with the presence of 14 inches of white fluffy stuff. Just to give you some idea of how deep the snow was drifting, here are a couple photos of my back yard. There is actually a step down from the sliding door, which you can't even see.
We had to shovel a total of four times to keep up with the snow fall, the most recent being this morning before work when the snowplows plowed about 8 inches of hard packed snow back into my driveway. Rumor has it that this was the third largest snow storm in Michigan history.
It really was such a tragedy, being stuck inside the house all day. I made lasagna and pumpkin spice cheesecake for dinner and BLTs and Mac'N'Cheese for lunch. Then, having previously finished what will be my last two handmade gifts for a looooooong time, I delved into some selfish stitching.
I was able to cut out and fuse two AoTH blocks. I was pretty unhappy with how block one originally came out so I'm remaking it. I think I will fuse a few more together before I do the satin stitching.
Then Jack and I settled in to watch some Person of Interest and I did a little work on Fall Fairy.
I'm putting off starting them until I get make more progress on my current WIPs. I'd like to finish my ranger hood, Jack's shirt, and maybe a couple pairs of garb pants for him first.
My crafty time will be at a minimum for a couple weeks. There are a few other annoying things I need to take care of here at home and rather than continue to fight it, I just need to settle in and deal with it. I'm still hoping that I will be able to get in 20 min a day for DaGMT (see tab at top of page.)
