Perhaps I shouldn’t have been so quick to dismiss the weather report yesterday. Not five minutes after I woke up this morning, the power went out! It was 7 hours before I could have my morning coffee. (Not only was I chilly all day, I was a bit surly too.) But at least I managed to put those 7 hours to good use… I filed some expense receipts that I had so far managed to avoid filing, whittled down a large stack of trade magazines, and got some stitching done. I started (and finished) a Pine Mountain pillow, worked a bit on a small SB kit, started stitching on an ornament for next year, and got a bit more done on one of my next releases.
