Really you must see it!!! I've got save up my pennies as it is a "must-have"!!

Look what we......

awoke to on Monday morning!!! Oh my!! almost 5 inches of snow! It is oh so pretty! But boy does our state(SC) ever "shut down" when it snows! I actually didn't even go out in it till today because of the ice......crutches + ice= disaster for me! My sweet husband got an extra long weekend so that was kinda nice. The next day they all went in late and one of the guys fell and broke 2 ribs. Needless to say I started a pot of homemade Chicken Noodle soup as soon as Brian left that day for work in hopes to cheer him up when he arrived home. He has taken some for lunch everyday since then.
I'll try to get more pictures of the snow up in my Flicker Album soon.
I've also got to upload a picture of my 1st finish for 2011. I started it in Nov. or was it Oct.? Anyway I'll need it to carry all of my "finished UFO's" to show at the quilt guild meeting.
We're actually meeting an extra time this month(this Sat.) to do some charity sewing.
In the meantime I've got to "catch up" on all my Aus. friends. Been praying for them daily. Such a sad thing for so many.

Peeking in to say "Hello"............I can hardly believe how long it has been since I've is shameful. There have been so big changes in my life, and I just haven't taken the time to post like I should. I love blog-land, but I'm finding it hard to keep up with. I've been reading every "now and then" and then I start to feel guilty so I retreat again. I have lost track of too much here. I am going to try again for a bit and see if I can get back in the swing of it. I've reminded myself that I don't have to type a novel everytime I post....maybe that will help.
Oh the sewing/stitching subject.......hmmmmm.....well my quilt guild decided to issue a UFO challenge this year.....ha! My list is a sad sad sight to be sure. I quit writing after filling up about four pages 16 items on each page. What is it with me? I seem to get "distracted" by a new project before finishing the current one. This is a habit I must break! I'll try again this year to list my "finishes" on my side bar. I hope you will come back here and cheer me on. I'll need the encouragement!

hugs, Terri
