Snowed in (ish)!

It's been unseasonable cold this March, and once again we'd had snowy weather. It snowed steadily all day Friday, and we've had about a foot of snow - hard to tell as it's very powdery and has drifted quite a bit. It's actually not too bad around us - all the main roads are clear and our street is passable, but we decided to hunker down and not bother digging the car out! The garden looks really pretty:

I'm still working on the Cherries block of Fruit Bellpull - On Friday night I finished all of the green. I took this yesterday morning, but never turned the laptop on to share it. I've done about 1/3 of the cherries so far, and I'd like to finish the xs today, and the bs in the next couple of days. So I'm snuggled up on the sofa under my lap quilt in my stitching nest. Poor Eddy, there's never room for him to sit down as I've spread the floss and other essential supplies all over the other sofa seat!

Happy stitching folks xx

It looks wonderful. We are in Autumn here so the cold weather is still coming our way. We don't usually get snow here but it has been cold enough 2 out of 6 years where we have gotten a tiny bit which is usually melted in 2 or 3 days.

Even we are at risk of some snow today... I'm so yearning for spring. Nice going on the bellpull - TW's shading is always wonderful.

Horrible weather isn't it. You definitely have the right idea.

Your cherries are looking good
