Lucky Eleven!

Good Evening Folks!

I've been trying to start and finish something in one day, and guess what? Today was the day!! I was able to start and finish "Peppermint Twist" from Little House Needleworks on 30 ct linen over two. I fell in love with this pattern from the moment I saw it on the internet, and have been looking for the little candy cane "pretty" for ages before I started it. I found it on Monday when I was visiting my LNS so today was the perfect day to start it! I'm so excited!! And here is a picture of it in all it's glory!

DH and I thought DS's dentist appointment was yesterday. Turns out it was today. BUT... the school called this morning to say there would be a two hour early dismissal due to a storm headed our way. The storm was supposed to start at 4:00 and that was the same time as DS's appointment. At 1:00 the dentist called to ask we could either come early for his appointment or cancel it altogether. I asked if we could come in one hour then DS and I got our act together and got to the dentist on time. Then we had to wait...and wait ...let's just say we were over an hour there waiting for them to fit him in. We needed a few things from the grocery store (in the same parking lot as the dentist) so stopped in there and got supplies, then headed home at 4:00. Still NO SIGN OF SNOW!! Only in Maryland would they close school early, and have the dentist call to rearranged a schedule with nary a snowflake in sight! Finally the snow started at 6:00 and at last check we have a little over an inch of snow. My guess is they'll cancel school tomorrow...but we'll have to wait and see. They are so unpredictable, you never know what they'll do.

Ok, off to bed. What will I start tomorrow? I haven't a clue!! LOL See you then!
