Friday - ice, rain, wind, fog, snow....

These are a few pictures from this morning. It seemed like we were going to have a really good ice storm but then it started raining and getting warmer. By late afternoon it was wind and fog - by this evening we were having a light snow. That sure is a lot for one day. Hopefully tomorrow will be better - we have to go get another load of wood.
Disregard this next picture, seems I uploaded the same picture again and can't seem to get rid of it.

I actually finished up most of my Christmas shopping today. Of course I did cheat a little bit. The fingerless mitts for Kris are not done yet, but then again she is making me a sheet quilt that is not done - so as we were talking about another project that we saw on a blog we decided those 2 projects are not getting done until the first of the year and we might make some of those cute little birds on Philgry's blog. We want to try them in wool though. About 7 miles from us is a little one stop light town that has a really nice primitive shop. Its called the Chairmaker and Friends. (The chair maker was actually featured in some primitive magazine that I see in the side bars of some of the primitive blogs and they have that magazine in the shop). The last time I was in there they had all this wool for rug hooking and making penny rugs, etc. I don't have any red so as long as I was going that way I thought I would stop in. Most wool pieces that I have seen have been somewhat expensive but they sell some nice big pieces for $5.00 to 10.00. Today when I was in the store the wool has taken over one small corner of the shop. There were large old baskets just stuffed with all types, colors and sizes of wool for 25 cents?? As I was sorting through the baskets I came up with several pieces that are probably 12 inches by 6 feet for the quarter. It was kind of hard to believe. I see table runners in their future. That was my deal of the day - what about you??
Take time to enjoy the season this weekend - by next week we will be talking about the end of another year!!
