I wanted to go. The weather was nasty and I decided to forgo the event. There was ice on our windshield when we got up and it is a long way to go in bad weather. The Friday before, we had a two hour delay because we had gotten 9 inches of snow. As it turned out, before the weekend was over, we had rain and hail besides. Kansas City, Mo had some flooding in the street. I do know that the people who did go had some great pictures up though.
One thing that went through my mind when trying to make this decision was how reliant I had become on other people’s patterns. While I love their work, it doesn’t push me to work on my designs. That seems important to me now.
I got the taxes done today. I am also in the process of massive shredding of old receipts and records. The shredded paper goes to the Humane Society to line the cages of the animals. It gives me a little more motivation to work on that project.
