Snow Day #3 = Art Day #3






I remember several years ago a friend telling us he knew how to embroider. He had gotten one of the childhood diseases (this was long before the modern vaccines) and his mother asked him which pattern he wanted embroidered on his pillowcase. He selected a pattern, and his mother told him that pattern was too hard. If he really wanted that pattern, he'd have to embroider it himself. He spent the next few days happily embroidering away. 
We've just had three "snow days" because the local electric company couldn't produce enough electricity to go around. Rolling blackouts can't stop art from being made and I spent three days happily beading.

Wow! You are so prolific and your work has turned out beautifully. Our snow days were caused by actual snow where we couldn't get off our street. My husband baked good stuff and I (a non-cook) made excellent chicken pot pie. Your work will be more lasting!
