We survived the weekend ice storm with no power loss and no damage. But it's still bitterly cold outside. Other than a quick trip out with Drama Teen to get our hair cut and pick up coffee yesterday, we didn't venture out all. Well that's not quite true I did venture outside in an attempt to get some cool shots of all the ice clad trees. I lasted all of about 5 minutes. The north wind was very persuasive in convincing me that the photos I had were good enough and I quickly scampered back inside. My Guy only lasted another 5 minutes and then he was back inside too, saying it was just to cold to stay out. That's rare for him, he can usually take the cold much, much better than I can.
I have some last minute wrapping to finish up this morning, as well as a bit of laundry, then I'll be done with my chores until after Christmas. I've not had a lot of time for stitching with all the pre-holiday prep work, but I did get a good start on clue 4 of Bonnie Hunter's Celtic Solstice mystery project.
The photo also shows my progress on all the other steps. Not as much as I would like, especially for the pinwheels. But I should have a few bits and pieces to assemble into blocks when we get to that part. I've been enjoying the process, even though I've not had a lot of time for sewing. After Christmas, I should be able to spend a couple of days in the sewing room just stitching.
Safe travels to those on the road or traveling by air this year. May you have a blessed holiday season and a joyous time with your families.
