Yes, that's me giving a big sigh. I finished a new row this afternoon. I promise that I won't show it row by row, but I did want to show my progress. I'm still in the uphill battle phase. The next two rows will be longer, then I can roll back downhill with shorter and shorter rows.We had our first rain of the new year yesterday. I noticed the 'wet moon' last week and new it was coming. Rain was in the forecast and our local whacky weather guy said the morning commute on Tuesday would not go well. I woke up to sunny skies and felt a little cheated. Around 8:30, the clouds rolled in, the sky was dark and we got a nice gentle rain most of the day. Usually January is our wettest month of the year. I hope we can get a little catch up in February or we are in for a brutal summer - fire danger will be so high.
The real fun is watching the weather reports. "Storm Watch 2007" complete with a logo and theme music. Even though I am a native and a good rain storm is the most severe weather I have experienced, the absurdity of the entire news team going on location and filing special reports concerning rain falling from the sky is just comical.
For sure rainy weather makes for good quilting days. Nothing like a warm fire, a hot beverage, a good movie and a quilt project to while away the rainy afternoon.
