With all the focus on snow in DC, I decided to stitch up a snowman ornament for Pumpkin's Project. This is a design by Trilogy called Secret Snowdrift. It's done on a piece of hand-dyed Aida from Enchanted Fabrics. I'm sorry to hear that Enchanted Fabrics is closing. She did such nice work at such reasonable prices. I've always had a problem with rickrack, but I like the look, so this time I hand basted it in place before machine sewing. I think that worked pretty well.
Looks like our snow will be with us for quite some time. Traffic is now a nightmare since people can get their cars out, but roads are still only cleared with a limited number of lanes. I have constant rush-hour type gridlock outside my home making it hard to get a car out of the driveway, and then adding 20 minutes to go four blocks. But I have made good use of the boots I bought after the first of the major storms back in December. Actually, I don't believe all of that first snow ever melted, before getting buried under the next series of storms.
