About halfway there, I got a message from the schools saying school was cancelled and the kids would be gotten home asap -- the younger kids hadn't even gone to school. Pshaw, we said. The roads weren't so bad! :D So we kept going. About 15 minutes before the LNS was supposed to open, I started calling to see if they were there. And they weren't! Even after their opening time they didn't answer! That's ok, we said. They often open a bit late.
We pulled up to the LNS and were horrified to see the store was dark! No lights! What?! They have to come! They have to open!!! We were in panic mode. We drove around back to see if their car was there. Nope. We drove back around front and were just about to do a Google search to see if we could figure out what the LNS owners' home phone was when -- voila! The lights in the shop turned on!!!! Oh we were sooooo happy! lol!
Our poor LNS owner. (Our LNS is Where Victoria's Angels Stitch.) She'd gone to Nashville and brought home tons of things. And she still wasn't finished unpacking yet. We really got first dibs on the market stuff! Here's a picture of my stash.
Now keep in mind that I do have some more stash coming from a couple of my favorite ONS's. I thought I was going to be so good this market. Sigh.
By the time we drove back home, the roads were getting pretty iffy in New York. New Jersey still wasn't bad for some reason. But we got home! So what would YOU do for market stash? lol!
While I was at the LNS, I picked up one of my framed pieces, Rebecca Robinson by Scarlet Letter. I'm so pleased with it!
Here's a detail of the frame.
And finally, I'm still plugging away on Sarah Woodham. Of course, I didn't follow my promise to myself to stitch the verse along with the rest of the piece so I wouldn't be stuck doing the verse at the end. I'm finished with Sarah -- except for the verse. Sigh.... Here she is.
Here are some detail pics.
I really love how Sarah is coming out. I'm just tired of that over one verse. lol!
So it's snowing away outside. The boy child is counting on a snow day tomorrow. I guess we'll see! They certainly messed up today sending the kids in.
Thanks for stopping by and saying hi. I love reading your comments! Hope it's less snowy where you are!
