Warm Stitches While It Snows!

So, this past week here in the Pacific Northwest has been bitterly cold.  We had a couple of inches of snow, which then promptly froze solid in the deep freeze we suffered afterward.  Since it was pretty hard to get around in this hilly and beautiful place, I spent a bit more time stitching.  Most places were closed, like School and Clinics which both affected me this week.  No Dr. appointments, and only home-work as the campus was closed.
As promised, here is the development on An Autumn Song.  This is my rendition of late summer into early winter.  I decided it was appropriate to work on Summer while it was SO cold outside.  I've learned so much in Jude Hill's classes this summer and I got a chance to practice some of what I learned doing summer.  I was hoping it would be done by today, but I have just a bit more to do before I work into the earthy-ness of Autumn.  Then we'll sneak up to the abrupt change to early winter.  You know, I was really surprised at how fast the cold weather came this past week or so.  "They" keep saying we are in for the coldest winter we've had in 55 years, and already we broke a record or two this past week.  Frankly, I was shocked that we went from fairly mild 50's - 60's during the daytime, free-falling into the teens during the day in the course of about 7-10 days!
I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday yesterday with good food, good company, a good movie, good music, stitching, or whatever you spent your day doing (and being thankful for all the blessings in your life of course!).


So, what do you think my friends??
