Winter Storm Liam & Little Baskets

In my previous post I showed some completed applique / EPP  and indicated that the forecast kept changing in regards to what winter storm Liam was going to leave us with.

He left me with a nice backache! :)

We had mostly ice. Just standing at the top of the steps trying to chip away at about 3 -4 inches of heavy icy slush, then going down step by step, to the sidewalk and then to the car…which was literally a car inside a huge ice cube…wasn’t fun.

VERY POOR TIMING…the youngest son who was living here for awhile had just moved to an apartment or HE would have had to do all of this :)

It’s all much prettier on a tree than a car.

Meanwhile the Rainbow Scrap Challenge color of the month suggestion for February is purple. I finished the applique on two Little Baskets in that color.

If you have been in the path of Liam how have you fared?

    what a mess – I hate those kinds of storms – I do remember them really – in the north. We missed it entirely and had a quarter inch of rain, it was still 33 degrees this morning when we got up but NW Arkansas where some of the family live dealt with a little ice but not bad.

    Driving in this is a mess…looking forward to spring!

    Ice storms are no fun and so dangerous. Sorry you had to chip away on your own. Two cute new baskets to add to the mix. Hope you have time to Stitch some more.

    Hello, I was just thinking about my mother’s rice pudding and was going to look for a recipe. I love the cute baskets. We had about an inch of the ice too, sleet and freezing rain. It is clear and sunny today but very cold in the 20’s. Stay warm and safe. Have a happy day!

  5. It’s a sheet of ice here, also, Deb! My car is currently parked on top of a glacier at work – I had to tiptoe around it, holding on for dear life, to get to the crusty safer area! Everything is just solid ice around my house, salt does nothing for this it seems. It will melt on Sat when we are getting into the 40’s – until then I shall just keep wearing my furry winter boots and being extremely cautious! And you be the same, Deb!!

    No ice here – supposedly 6-8″ of snow ahead for tomorrow though.
    I love those little baskets – and how there’s a color scheme to please everybody in the mix!

  7. Beautiful appliqué and delicious looking rice pudding. :-)

    Mmmmmm rice pudding looks delicious!
    cute little basket blocks

  9. Hello Debra, I hope your poor back is recovering, who needs the gym when you have Liam around?! It seems all places have their weather trials, we are currently experiencing a cold weather situation which has exacerbated our pollution levels in Bangkok to extreme, up till this point I was loving the cooler air!
    You take care and tread gingerly and with extreme caution!
    Love Wren x

    We just got 8″ of snow overnight and more coming tomorrow and Sunday. But I’d sure rather have that than ice!

  11. All that ice and snow does not sound like fun at all. Definitely a great idea to stay inside and make some more of those pretty baskets.

  12. Karen says:

    Adorable baskets.

  13. I always enjoy your photos – looks prettier from indoors, though, I bet! Your baskets look fun to stitch! You must be getting quite a pile of them.

    Two pretty purple baskets.
    I am saving the rice pudding recipe to give it a try. Thanks

    We are still longing for a winter storm, just because it is so terribly dry. I’m sorry you had so much ice.

  16. I prefer the tree too – tell that kid he has to come back during bad weather ;-) Feel better

    I always love seeing those cute little baskets. My cutting was interrupted by the flu, but I’ll be back to it again this week! I’ve done more since I last showed a picture. It’s about 3/4 of a Sterlite shoebox now. =) Long way to go, barely scratched the surface.
