Pansy Motif

Woke up at 4am and couldn't go back to sleep so got up. I could either scrub the kitchen floor or stitch... Didn't take long to make that decision. Got a good start on the pansy motif... Although it doesn't show I edged the ribbon and the leaves with gold paint and I couched the hanging stems with gold.

I did the worst possible thing before going to bed...I checked the road conditions for the pass over the Cascade Mountains.. Flashing red type warned of big winter storm alert... The flashing red type was bad enough but now they have these web cameras that actually show how bad it is.. If it wasn't for this class with Robin no way would I start across those mountains..

I couldn't sleep and have a stomach ache and I haven't even gotten into the car... Years back I was in an accident on winter roads and the vehicle slid off an icy road and down a bank and rolled over several time and it was completely totaled. Luckily we had our seat belts on because when it stopped rolling we were hanging upside down in the vehicle.. Other than lots of bruises there was no serious bodily harm but it left me an absolute wimp about winter driving...

Love your pansies, they are so darling. Pansies are one of my favorites and it is so hard to get them to look 'right'. Will be glad to hear that you got home all safe and sound!! Suzie in Idaho
