The day started with a two hour delay but soon morphed into a closing. By 5:00pm, we had at least 7 or 8 inches on top of what hasn't yet melted from last week/ And the predictions for Tuesday night into Wednesday are for another 4 to 8 inches of snow topped off with an inch or two of ice. And we have two more months of winter left to survive. Ah well, we have had some exceptionally mild winters in the past few years so I guess we were due for a rough one. We haven't yet gotten to the point when the town sends in the front loaders and dump trucks to take the snow away and dump it into the Hudson River. But that may happen this week.
So I may have more stitching time than usual this week as a result. Today, I spent some time doing the one strand stitching on the band. This involved the satin stitching in the dark blue squares and the Algerian eyelets around the blue squares. It was all rather time consuming. I didn't even manage to finish up one of the 8 squares before my eyes started to cross. And I was using a magnifier and a stitching lamp, so that's saying something. But I would far rather take my time and get it right since frogging one stranded stitches is truly horrific.
