Ice Storm

Well, you know that arctic blast that prompted the scarf set? It also prompted an ice storm… that prompted a power outage. Oddly enough, I’m picking up wireless from someone, let me just say thank you to whoever you are out there and if your power goes out and mine is on, feel free to borrow from me. Anyway, it went out last night at about 8:30 and it’s still showing no signs of coming back on. I have electric heat and stove so I’m out of luck. It is still okay temp in my apartment and the ferrets, who like colder weather, seem to be thriving in it. They are running around like there is just nothing better than being in an apartment that is 50 degrees. I’m just hoping it stays about like this. I think I could and they could handle it to about 45 and then I will board them at the vet and sleep at a friends.

In an odd way, it really has worked out nicely for me. I had extra inspiration to go to the studio first thing in the morning and stay there until just now. About 11 hours of studio time. That’s pretty good if I do say so myself.

Well, I’m rambling. Main point, the power is out and therefore/that’s why there will not be/was not any shop updates until I comes back on. If you order something/have ordered something, it will be sent out same day or next day depending on the time of day you order it no problem. I just can’t take pictures and fix them up and post new things to the shop right now. There just isn’t good enough lighting in here.

Also, if you have problems downloading the stripe set pattern, send me an email at craftleftovers@gmail.com and I’ll send you the file directly. I tested it and it worked okay for me so I’m thinking it must be a security setting or pop up blocker thing.

Okay, I think that’s it. Here is to hoping it comes on soon!

One thought on “Ice Storm

  1. I listened to your interview on Craft Sanity this afternoon as I wrapped Christmas gifts and really enjoyed it. Over the years I’ve inherited a lot of craft supplies from my Grandma and my husband’s Grandma so I can relate to what you were saying. It makes me happy when I’m able to use some of those things in my projects. But I got rid of the serger because I didn’t know how to use it and had no room! And now I probably won’t ever have one again because I don’t sew often enough to justify the expense.

    I also liked hearing from a crafter from my home state of Illinois too.
