Well, it finally snowed here in Michigan...
....Enough that we could break out the cross country skis we got for Christmas LAST year and finally have the chance to use them. We never had enough snow last year to use them! It was fun to get out and use them finally. This was Sunday last week.
By the next day, it was 50 degrees here, and all the snow melted! So weird. We had rain and thunderstorms for two days.
Today's Thursday, and the local schools are closed due to snow. We are supposed to get up to 10 inches of snow between today and tomorrow. What weather! Even the university is closed! I can't believe it. But Sweet Pea's school is open. She is one really unhappy camper!
EDIT: I totally posted the wrong video! LOL. Well, this video was just kind of fun (above). I had pasted it in to remember to show it to you sometime and then forgot to check it before I hit the Post button. Sorry!
Here.....below is the video I meant to post! LOL.
This video is from Missouri Star Quilt Company. It's a tutorial for how to make a scarf out of minky. A pretty quick and easy scarf. I made one for myself and one for Sweet Pea. But it hasn't been cold enough to wear them since I finished them. I'll take photos and show you later. But I thought you might like the tutorial.
I ordered a book from Missouri Star Quilt Company the other day. I got a notice of my order by email. I thought their order notice was pretty funny. Have you ever actually read their notice, if you've ordered from them? Here it is:
As you read this, the items you ordered anxiously wait on on our shelves like a puppy in a pet shop window for its new owner. As we pick and pack your order, we recognize that our whole life has been but a prelude to this moment. In the very near future, our most decorated shipper will complete your order and a hush will fall over the shop, and our eyes will moisten and be dabbed by golden handkerchiefs as we courier this order on to you. When that happens you'll receive a Shipping Notification email with your tracking number, and you can check the status of your order anytime by logging into your account (just click here).Pretty funny. I like people with a sense of humor.
I was shopping with Sweet Pea at a toy store the other day. I saw this on the shelf, and my first thought was, "Inspiration for English Paper Piecing!" I used these with my kids when I was a classroom teacher. I had sort of forgotten about them. I was thempted to buy it, just to play around with hexie designs. I still might. LOL!
My mom had these napkins out when I was visiting her at Christmas. I thought they were great. Don't you love them? Who wants to go have a drink with me?
Well, I'm going to do a lot of work today, even though the university is closed. I could use some catch-up time. And some of my meetings I'm working on scheduling via phone instead. But I may take a short break and sew a triple-zip pouch. That would be a nice treat!
I am linking up with Cindy at Live A Colorful Life for Really Random Thursday. Visit her for more lovely randomness.
