Pax aka "Winter Mess 2014"
The week started with the impending visit
from Pax to South Carolina. It is uncommon
that we get hit with snow and ice and this would
be the second time in two weeks. We stocked up
on every possible junk food item needed to
weather the storm. We received more ice than
snow and were so fortunate not to lose power.
Unfortunately, hundreds of thousands were
not so lucky and they estimate there were still
100,000 without power as of this morning. We
have several family members and friends who
have been out since Tuesday night. I know the
utility employees are working hard to restore
everyone and I am praying
everyone will be back to normal soon.

Thanks to Pax, we got three snow days and
hubby thought it would be a good idea to
get caught up on some household chores
These are a gift so I quickly declared them
"stitch days" and made the most of them.
The Primitive Hare "Love Never Fails" freebie
stitched on 32ct coffee dyed linen with
I stitched this cute freebie last weekend and got
the finishing done just in time for Valentine's.
Since I had the sewing machine out,
I finished these recent finishes off too.
Homespun Elegance "Majestic Bird"
Summer House "Simple Abundance"

I made good use of my stitching time on
Part 2 of Thirteenth Colony.
I was able to finish one page of the 4 page design.

My last stitch was put in Friday night around
10:20 when hubby and I felt some rumblings.
At first we thought we were crazy ... you know
that second you think "did that really happen?"
Lo and behold.... it was an earthquake.
There was a second aftershock this afternoon
but was too weak to be felt 60 miles away.
Needless to say, that just capped off one of
the weirdest weeks here. Glad to see things are
getting back to normal and am actually looking
forward to going back to work tomorrow.
Hope you all have a great week and
