LET IT SNOW, LET IT SNOW, LET IT SNOW....

 
FIRST OFF HERE IS MY LUISA SAMPLER PATTERN
DONE UP BY MY FRIEND CAROLE IN LOWER
MICHIGAN. IT'S WONDERFUL CAROLE! LOVE THE
FRAME TOO!!

 
WE GOT 21" OF SNOW IN A DAY AND A HALF
FROM THIS RECENT STORM. IT LOOKS LIKE
THE DEAD OF WINTER INSTEAD OF THE
BEGINNING! MY SLEDS ARE IN THE SHED
BUT I THINK I CAN DIG THEM OUT IN
A WEEK OR TWO. I KNEW THE STORM WAS
COMING BUT IT SEEMED TOO EARLY TO
PUT THEM OUT. I GUESS I SHOULD HAVE!!
 
I'M WORKING HARD ON MY UPDATE.
STAY TUNED FOR A DATE.
 
UNTIL NEXT TIME......LORI
