A HAZY SHADE OF WINTER...

Boy oh boy....I said I missed the snow....and now I'm getting paid back..karma has come in piles and inches of the white fluffy stuff!!  We had a harrowing drive from the west side of the state, Kalamazoo, on I-94.  The two hour drive took us over three and a half hours...so many spinouts, accidents and NO SALT TRUCKS!!!!!!!!!  After all of this..we didn't even have an Elvis siting...UGH!


On a brighter note..look at this gorgeous orchid of my moms that my daughter bought her a few years ago....it blooms through out the year...so lovely...





My stitching and hooking have really taken a back seat since before Christmas.  This design, is being stitched for a friend.   I'm hoping to get this done in a couple of weeks so I can finish stitching a sampler that I started in the fall.  It's a design called "TheWitch, The Crow,  and The Pumpkin" by Barbara Ana.  The fabric is evenweave 28 count that I coffee dyed.  I'm using called for colors in DMC.  


I'll be busy this week getting ready for the annual Sauder Village Weekend Rug Hooking Retreat starting onThursday.  I have no idea what I'm going to be bringing to hook since I haven't hooked in forever...but it is such a fun and inspirational weekend....hopefully, the weather will improve!   

Have a great Sunday and thank you for your comments!!

  1. Karma's a bitch...lol! Glad you made it home safely. (BTW...maybe I'm dense but I don't get the Elvis comment.)
    That orchid is beautiful and I'm sure especially welcome in dreary January. I take it your mom is doing well?
    Sauder here we come 😊😊😊

  3. Have fun at the hook in. Lovely witchy stitchery! Been snowing all day. Not fun driving I-94 in the snow belt area. Janice

  4. Oh, wow. Glad you got home safe and aren’t traveling under the current Winter Weather Advisories. The hook-in sounds divine, and I don’t even hook rugs. . . yet. Judy
