Snow & Ice Storm/Power Outage & DD#1's Stitching

I'm still here! A snowstorm/ice storm came thru and we were 3 days without power!  And 4 days without cable or internet (I don't know which is worse! )

When things were back to normal, we left for Great Wolf Lodge -a waterpark south of Seattle.  It was a birthday present to my grandson who is turning 7 in Feb.
On the way home we stopped for lunch at Cabela's. Cabelas is a man-store with loads of stuffed animals as part of their displays.  Here is DH and grandson in front of the elephant, zebra, water buffalo, etc.

Here they are in front of the polar bear, brown bear, black bear, etc. Mountain goats & sheep are on the other side of these rocks.

DD #1 is still busy and here is the latest for her-

2010 JCS Christmas Ornie Issue-
Blackberry Lane Designs Frosty Blue
Mystery linen and DMC threads
Fabric from my stash
Finished by her using Vonna's flatfold tutorial

Samplerbird Stitchery
Holiday Spirit
Mystery linen
Crescent Colours Cupid thread

Yes, I'm still stitching but without power I can't use my lighted magnifier, so my stitching is whatever I can see without it :)  I will do a personal stitching update later this week.
Have a great hump day!

Hope you get your power back soon, that's no fun! Love your finishes!

Ice storms seem to always take away the power. Glad you made it through okay. Love the ornie finishes!

Christine said...

Great finishes. Hope you get your power back soon

Sorry to hear that you've been affected by all the bad weather! Your daughter's stitching is so pretty--nice finishing!

Denise said...

Well, at least you are back among those with power!

Great finishing on your pieces! Go DD!

I know what it is like to be without power...unfortuntely...

I figured you were getting some of the nasty weather where you live. It is awful being without power. I often times think about those who came before us and the women stitched by firelight - don't know how!

We lost our heating a couple of days back and it was awful! Luckily, it's back now, just before the cold snap is about to hit. I hope you get your power all sorted soon. What a lovely day trip with your grandson! Thank you for sharing the pictures.
Best wishes.
