Last night was Friday. In our part of the world, the wind was gusting to up to 97 km per hour by dinner time -- this after a wonderful almost spring-like day with (gasp) sunshine and temperatures that approached 10 degrees Celsius.
So, I was glad to be stitching this little Tone Finnanger image. Fortunately, I chose the colours when it was sunny and warmish during the day, thus its cheerful spring vibe.
Late in the day, I opted to sign up for the Friday Night Sew In. Get the details here:
I like the idea of a virtual sewing bee. The advantage is that you feel kind of connected, but since you can't actually see anyone, you don't waste time yaking. Actual work gets done in this virtual meeting!
I was waiting for Miss B to come home for the Family Day weekend, but as she prepared to come home, the police evacuated the Dundas St. northbound train.
So, she stayed downtown and waited for her Dad to finish work and come home. Long story short, I was glad I had some free time on my hands.
There is something very comforting about stitching when the weather swirls all around you. I did get up and check out a couple of banging noises -- at one point one of shovels left its perch on the porch and scooted across the flagstones. But, when I opened the front door to get it, I was hit in face with a huge blast of cold air. I decided to leave the shovel to its own fate.
Really, by this point of our never-ending winter, I am kind of sick of the thing anyway. I don't care if it blew away and I never saw it again. Don't even get me started on how sick I am of my winter coat...
It is still blowing and snowing here this morning, so I will finish this piece today. It will become part of a quilt sometime this summer.
