Snow is coming?

Ok, so they say we could get a good amount of snow.   The usual routine is to make sure we have everything we will need for a day going nowhere (except outside to shovel and clear off the car — and maybe throw a snowball at my hubby.)  penquin throwing snowball

Bread — check;  milk — check;  tea — check; wood for the fireplace — check; wine -check

So, it looks like we are set for everything we will need, right?   Oh contrar!   I will need to make sure I’ve got enough to keep me busy for the weekend in my sewing room because we know that I don’t have enough fabric and projects to keep me busy!

So, this evening after work, I headed to Michaels to get some yarn.  I have been waiting and waiting for it to go on sale either at Michael’s or A.C. Moore and this was the week.Cotton yarn

I see some knitted dishcloths in my future.

Yesterday I got a delivery from the M*QC  so I have some nice new fabric to play with and dream about the pretty things I can make with it.  And, while going through my fabric stash and organizing last week, I realized that I was in need of some flannel and was going to head out to get that on Saturday but that was probably not going to happen with the snow arriving.   I headed out to get that after dinner.fabric


Got gas on the way home and now I’m all set.   Let the snow begin.  snowflakes

Have fun everyone heading to those grocery stores to stock up on your bread and milk. I’ve got my supplies in.

See you soon.

    We’re slated to get 18-24 inches Friday and Saturday and wind on Saturday and Sunday. Possible power outages, so I’ve filled two five gallon buckets of water for the toilet, several gallon jugs of water for cooking, candles ready, oil lamps ready, propane tanks full, all animals bedded down, leaving extra haybales in the woods for the cattle, extra covering on the chicken house walls to fill up the cracks, cleaned out under their roosts, shovels ready and waxed, lots of wood on the porch and in the house, old telephone brought out because cordless don’t work without power and we don’t have cell service on the farm and today I cook up some extra goodies. We’re ready too!
    What brand and size yarn do you use for your dishcloths? The flannels are gorgeous and my stack is low as well.
    Stay warm and safe!

      Sounds like you are ready for what Mother Nature is poised to throw at you Rita. We could lose power so we have our candles and oil lamps all set and we have wood for the fireplace. If I had a treadle machine, I’d really be set. 🙂

      I use Lily’s Sugar and Cream cotton yarn for my dishcloths. I like using them so much better than sponges.

      Be safe in the storm. Stay warm and cozy.
