Weather Delays

Cripes, with the storms marching over the Northeast it seemed like I would never get back to Oregon, but I did Monday afternoon. My original flight had been scheduled for Friday, Valentines Day, but storm Pax left the eastern part of the country in quite a mess, as I'm sure some of you know! My flight was so delayed connecting flights out of San Francisco were almost impossible. Believe me it was no hardship to have to spend another few days with my folks. I felt sorry for all those people waiting in airports and hotel rooms that's for sure. I even saw some of them in line on Monday, finally getting out of Boston to where they needed to go.

Yesterday I did a quick clean sweep of the house, putting things in order and headed to town for some much needed supplies, which included fabric of course! Lots of fun new fabrics came in while I was away
and next post I'll include some pics. Who knows, I might have even transformed a few into something. :)

While in New England I helped my Dad put on a 12 yard warp for some fine cottolin towels and of course, Mom and I did a little shopping here and there. As always, I was treated to many seafood delights  but the Ipswich clams were the standout this trip. And of course, a brace of lobsters. Some mink fur yarn came home with me and a few yards of pretty grosgrain ribbon. Pictures coming.

Since this is a picture less post I'll keep it short, and use the time getting some pics taken!
Horses, goats, cats and dogs all weathered my absence just fine, and everyone had a special greeting for me when I got back.

Parting shot: Okay, maybe someone was a bit miffed I had been gone so long.

  5. Totally understand the airport delays - I was stuck in northern Michigan for two days waiting for a flight. No matter, I got two more days with family. Glad you are home and safe and the "fur kids" are happy to have you home again.
