Snowy night in Georgia!


We had our first significant snowfall of the winter, starting around 6 p.m. last night! It fell intermittently throughout the evening and gave us about 2 1/2-3" of beautiful cover. It's dripping now, melting away pretty fast although the ground is still white.

Schools are closed in the area--since we're in the South the road equipment is sparse and a number of the side roads get icy and stay that way for a bit.

The views of the snow are from the inside looking out (obviously!) since I haven't gotten myself together to be outside yet.






















Studio note--my husband had surgery on Monday of this week so I haven't been working too much at the studio. I did have time to begin my Woven Gems small tapestry and hope to get back to it later today. I'm using a bead weaving as the basis for the piece, incorporating it into a tapestry "frame" being woven with metallic threads...our TWS challenge for the exhibit is "Bedazzled" and, so far, the effect is way more dazzling than I usually weave!

What a winter! You've got snow in Georgia, and we have below zero temperatures in the 'banana belt' desert of western Colorado! Very rare here. Good weaving weather, though. Hope your husband's recuperation goes smoothly - Kathy

Hi Kathy!
You must be online right as I've posted the snow pix!
Yep, we usually get one "good" snow annually...this may be the one.
Thanks for the thoughts for my husband...he's pretty pitiful right now (this is his first ever surgery and it's all new to him)--but test results were benign.
