Continued freaking out -- as predicted....

My Walking Tour fair isle scarf continues to grow.  I'm getting closer to the end, but still have a good way to go.


I finished the first row of my Fussy Cut quilt as well.


I imagine most of us in the Northeast are very tired of all the snow and ice we've been getting.  Poor boy child says he hasn't even had a single class of one of his classes for the new semester, which started January 20.  And for another, he's only had one class.  Poor kid.  Classes have been cancelled for the third week in a row for tomorrow.  Unbelievable.  And yes, more ice and snow tonight and tomorrow.  Sigh.

Father Type and I cooked another zoodle dish.  Mia seems to approve of these zoodle dishes very highly!



What a silly cat!

Thanks for stopping by and saying hi.  Stay warm or cool, depending on where you are.  Too bad we can't balance things out, huh?  Have a great week!

That is wild about your son's classes! Catching up will NOT be fun.

Annie said...

So which gets finished first.. the beautiful scarf or this string of awful winter snow storms! I feel for you.

Yummy dinner. Mia doesn't partake, does she? Just eyes the goodies?

Dawn said...

Wow, never heard of so many college classes cancelled!
Hope you get a slow, no flooding melt!

Cari said...

Sorry about your crummy weather. At least you have a warm home with a darn cute cat !! Love the scarf and your fussy cut stars. Warmest hugs from Florida !!

Vera said...

Projects all look wonderful Margaret. Sorry the weather is not so much so! Crazy about Boston, huh? Not sure what we are getting here today...my car was iced when I left for work, but roads were fine...more stuff/some form of precip forecast for the balance of today and tonight. Yuck!

Can't imagine where all that water will go when the snow melts! Your scarf keeps getting better and better!
Have a great week,

Oh the weather is really wild by the sound of it Margaret. I hope it changes very soon and your son gets back to classes. The novelty soon wears off when it goes on and on for weeks. Hi to Mia, as always.

Margaret, I am just in love with that scarf of yours. Those colors just sing to me. Stay warm, dear friend.

Your scarf is gorgeous. I knitted one this winter but it was a quickie. I love looking at your walls in the pic backgrounds. Your samplers are gorgeous. I feel for your snow mess but glad its you and not us right now LOL Denver is enjoying a spring break!

Your scarf is beautiful. I cannot even begin to image the amount of snow in Boston. The first few days of snow days and cancelled classes is fun the next three weeks not so much.

Silly Mia--she is too funny

Melissa said...

They will have to start putting the term "freaking cold" in the weather forecast soon! lol.

I'm sorry it's been so cold and "snowed in" and that your son's school has canceled classes for 3 weeks already! Wow.

Your handwork are all looking wonderful. That zoodle dish - yum! I haven't bought that thingy yet but should have another look at it!

Keep warm!

That scarf is so pretty and the quilt is going to be awesome too. I guess if Mia approves it's alright!

A beautiful Miss Mia :)
I love that scarf! I can't imagine the boy child not having class for 3 weeks in a row! MY HEAVENS! Spring Break will be here soon...then what?!
I wonder if they will extend the semester?
Well...I know last year we had a lot of snow and very bitter cold, but this year we've not had much of a winter at all. It's been cold, but no snow. Which is truly odd for this part of the country too...I hope you all thaw out soon. I hate to see people suffer and it has been that way a lot along the east coast. STAY WARM!

Vonna, The Twisted Stitcher said...

Oops! forgot to say..that fussy quilt...its gonna be a stunner for sure!

Anne said...

Stay warm and safe Margaret! We are getting the other end of the Nor'easter..the Pineapple Express. It's so warm here but with flash floods. Can't complain though in comparison to up north where a person goes to open their door and it's blocked by snow! Love your fair isle scarf and the fussy cut is coming along beautifully!! Say hi to Mia for me!

Amanda said...

As I was scrolling down waiting for your pictures to load, I saw "Fussy Cut" as "Fussy Cat" and thought for a moment that Mia had gotten herself locked in the back room again. Happy to see she's safe, warm and "properly pampered and revered."

Rugs and Pugs said...

Your scarf is beautiful and I just love the sampler in your last post.
I am so tired of winter and yours has been even worse than ours. UGH! Only 1 day in the next 10 is supposed to be above freezing.
Stay warm if possible.
Hugs :)
Lauren

Linda said...

Your scarf and quilt are gorgeous Margaret.

Mary said...

Your scarf will be a work of art when it's done Margaret! I'd wish the weather will stay cold enough for you to wear it soon, but on second thought, you might not want that!

marly said...

Still amazed at that scarf. And the snow. Hope it stops completely and cities can get help melting it all.

Jackie said...

We had that same Zoodle dish tonight. I think we like the other one better though we will make this again and use more sweet chili paste.

Your quilt and scarf are really coming along. I can't wait to see them finished.

The snow will soon be gone. My red maple in the backyard has almost entirely leafed out and I'm quite sure I've had pollen on the car.

valerie said...

Your scarf is looking great! So soft and cozy. And I love your first row on the quilt. The different neutrals really make the stars pop. Stay warm! I can't imagine how the boy child will catch up on classes!

Mary Ann said...

I was looking forward to seeing your progress on the beautiful scarf!!

Stay warm and safe!

Beth said...

I was thinking about your DS what with this latest storm. New Englanders must be pretty tired of winter by now. Oh the scarf and the quilt - both so pretty. Color is addictive I think.

beautiful Work

Chris said...

What a winter! Your Fussy Cut quilt is going to be amazing.
What are zoodles? Are they the vegetable strings? Do you have one of those cool gadgets?
Stay warm and snug...I could use a snow day.. I am working at home so I would still have to work...

Carol said...

Wow, I can really see that quilt taking shape now, Margaret--what a beauty it will be! And your scarf is brilliant--such fun to work with those bright colors during this long winter.

I do feel for your son--my sister teaches and lives in the city of Boston and says it's been a nightmare. The school year won't be ending until July 2nd now--can you imagine!! And more snow is forecast for later this week--it's just crazy. I love Boston, but don't think I could cope with their snowfall amounts!

Melody said...

Your quilt is going to be so beautiful. The stars are so striking. Also, the scarf is so lovely. I'm sorry the weather has been so bad. Your son will have a lot to catch up on!!

Melanie said...

The snow really is INSANE this year around here. INSANE. More and more and more and more. :(

Brigitte said...

It's not very funny that the snowy and stormy weather continues for you. I can unsderstand your son that he's a bit frustrated about all the cancelled classes - I gues he'll have to have extended classes after the end of the semester. BUt what can you do when many students and professors are unable to reach the college building because of the snow. Here it started to melt two days ago meaning that it took about 4" off, but 10" are still there, sigh. Not much for you but too much for me.

Your first row of the Fuzzy Stars quilt is looking just gorgeous. And so is your scarf. No stitching right now?

woolwoman said...

I saw some crazy stats about how much snow Boston has had in comparison to places like Alaska, Minnesota etc and I think only buffalo beat it out. I bet you'll be wearing your lovely scarf soon. Just keep knitting and stay warm and safe. Mel

Roberta said...

The scarf is really coming along, just love it. Cannot wait to see the finish look of your fussy cut quilt.

mainelystitching said...

I am sooooo loving this scarf!!

Sally said...

Your scarf is looking amazing! It will be so lovely and warm. Perfect for the snow and ice.

The zoodle dish looks delicious. Wonder if my lot would eat it!

Beautiful quilting too.
