Happy Sunday?! Okay, under our recent weather circumstances, I might be a bit sarcastic in my tone. After all the snow and the ice, here in Eugene we are finally warming up and able to assess some of the damage.
The first big casualty landed perfectly between my fence and my house. The tree was so frozen, it just shattered when it hit the ground.
Unfortunately, this was just the beginning...
All night long, throughout the neighborhood, you could hear branches break and trees fall. I don't think many of us got a lot of sleep.
Thankfully I didn't loose power but there are many more messes to clear once the snow and ice melts.
As this is what is currently in my driveway, I don't think I will be going any place for a bit.
The trees right above are still full of ice and a bit treacherous to be working under.
My only damage came from a tree in my neighbors yard. I feel quite fortunate as many of my neighbors woke up to trees falling on their homes.
I really hope we are nearing the end of our winter. Can we please have our rain back!
So after a quick tour of the yard, I came back in, kicked off my snow boots and made myself feel better by petting some of my recent fabric buys! So many new pretties!
Some lovely grays and turquoises to work into my Sew Kitschy wallhanging.
(And my new Fiesta pitcher that a friend bought me for my new kitchen....I love it!)
Here are some of the tangerine orange pieces I also picked up.
Okay, this stack makes me really happy!
And there were a few other little pieces that found their way home with me.
Okay, there were some really big pieces...
but I need these linens! Petting them and thinking of all the possibilities helps me to forget the mess I have to deal with outside!
As I pet and put these fabrics away, I realize I have purchased about 15 yards of fabric for a 40" wall hanging! Okay now I am smiling....Gee, I hope it is enough!
