My TV came today

So my TV came today - for some reason they left it on my porch
these are the two boxes that were left on my porch

This is the size of my porch.... I had a great time standing in the snow and cold trying to get the 70 and 40lb boxes inside my house... I'm letting the TV warm up until tomorrow (mostly because I'm watching PR right now)...

Another nephew

So last Tuesday my new nephew finally came.

I quickly made him a hat on Thursday which he wore to his birthday party : ) I hope he wasn't crying because of the hat.

Christmas Projects

I sold 2 Christmas stockings, artfully photographed on the front seat of my car and the counter and the post office.

Then my dad's packer socks which were thankfully wide enough... they were a bit loose on the cuff at the bottom but I'm guessing they'll be worn around the house and it won't be an issue.

I made my niece mittens, which she modeled along with her egg nog mustache.

I made 2 scarves the same for my two nephews who live in MN a nice bulky scarf for extra warmth.

And the gween sweater..... which I bound off too tightly and reknit the neck on - so no Christmas modeling : )

what happened yesterday

So I left my parents house to go the Fold at around one, after about 20 minutes I had slide sideways into the opposite lane of traffic, luckily no one was coming and I straightened myself out very quickly. I drove another 15 miles when is slide sideways off the road and into a ditch. The snow on the passenger side was up to the passenger side window and the wind made it extremely difficult to open the door (and impossible to close without shutting my hair in the door). A county sheriff appeared after about 15 minutes after leaving another can in the ditch about half a mile north of me. He said I needed to have the car towed immediately because of how far I was still in the road, he got the tow truck driver from the other car to pull me out. When I was out and down the road further to pay and realized (after 3o minutes of getting pulled out) that I knew the tow truck driver... so thanks Trent! I was halfway between where I was and where I was going so I kept on... and after a few more miles of bad drifts and ice I came to a few miles of clear road and it was mostly clear after words and only a little more sliding occur ed. I finally arrived at the fold at 4:15 and was greeted by many hugs and was told by Toni to sit down and eat cake : ) The yarn sale prices were awesome and I got some great bargains and a great and generous gift from Toni.
I'll be posting Christmas projects and glass making pictures soon!
