After 10 years of no real appreciable amounts of snow, Mother Nature is making up for it this winter. Before Christmas we received approximately 27 inches. I stopped measuring at 21", but then it continued to snow for another 20+ hours, albeit at a slower rate. This snow was followed by another 9 inches a few weeks later, to be followed by 4 more inches last weekend. The predictions for this snow are ranging from 12-30 inches. I haven't been measuring, but is has been snowing at a pretty good rate since 6 am, and it is supposed to snow through tomorrow evening. Here is a view out our kitchen window.
I think my son Scott has got me beat on the cool factor!
As for what I have been busy doing this week instead of weaving, my kids have only been in school 4 hours in the last week. However, that four hours was a nice break. It gave me time to run to the thread store and get some colors that I was running out of to finish my 10x10 inch tapestry, to run to the grocery store to get a few more items in case of power outage, and to go to my fiber arts meeting with a fiber group that recently asked me to join called Fiber Transformed. We have one show mounted right now at Artworks in Richmond if anyone gets a chance to see it. I was not able to finish a piece for this show, called Starting Point. There is another show right now at Radford University called Wish You Were Here, based on photos from members' vacations. Because I just recently joined the group, again, I don't have a piece for that show. I am finishing one for the next Starting Point show which will be at Blue Ridge Community College at the end of February. The Starting Point pieces must have at least one black dot in them somewhere, and it can be any size.
Today, I am trying to get a little weaving done. Here is a view into the studio, you can get a glimpse of my companions.
Here is a shot of my progress on my ATA Enchanted Pathways weaving.
