Patchwork Sampler

I am so mad at myself tonight. I pulled out my patwork sampler that I have been stitching using Ozark Sampler floss. I figured that while I was on a snow day I could stitch the 3rd square. I made great progress until I realized I couldn't find my DMC pearle #12 in black for backstitching. I have a WHOLE ball of this thread that I bought just for this project. I have looked everywhere and it is no where to be found. I guess Jag thought it would be a great play toy. Sigh, I put up the design until I can purchase more threads.
I got out of the house tonight and I was amazed at some of the streets. I couldn't even get up the small incline at my moms. It was a covered sheet of ice. My car started sliding sideways and my tires spun out. I have to say it was very scary. I decided to go to the high school to get some copies ready for classes on Wednesday if we have school (WE DON"T) and the street in front of hte school was a solid sheet of ice. It was like skating. I couldn't believe how bad it was since this is one of the major streets...talk about crazy. I managed to stop by the local grocery store and bought milk, butter, and cokes!!! I was going through coke withdrawals. There is nothing better than the first drink of a cold coke!! We are looking for more snow tomorrow. I don't like this weather..I have to say I prefer hot summer weather.
Since I can't work on my patchwork sampler...I am going to bite the bullet and start my Summer Ball design!!!

It sure is frustrating when you can't find something you know you had and need. I know I can't rest until it is found.

Take care in the icy conditions

I hate it when I know i've definitely got a particular thread but can't find it. School's out here as well thanks to snow, freezing conditions and ice. Not a lot of stitching getting done with the kids still being at home; lots of reading tho :-)

Be careful out there. We're due to get another 6-12" of snow in the next 24 hours. Ugh.

I'm with you 100%. I sit here with a laptop and my Coke (about 100 miles off the coast of Cuba) and wonder what I would do if this ship only had Pepsi products. I guess I would have to smuggle some Coke products in, as I do at Marriott hotels.

Hey Vickie, why didn't you say something to me about needing that thread? I have several balls, I was downtown, and I would have been more than happy to meet you with some. Remember, I DON'T have snow days so I pretty much go anywhere and everywhere out of necessity. Hope we can meet on Sat-I am excited to finally learn how to post pics! Becki
