Temperature Afghan February Update

Good Day!!

I'm a few days late in updating my progress on this project.  Just Look!!  Same colors yet again in February.  I patiently wait for the temperature to climb and add a few HOT rows to the project.  Anyway, here it is March 4 and the forecast is...more snow.

I am eagerly awaiting warmer dry weather to do some MAJOR yard clean up.  You might be thinking that means raking etc.  It does.  But not leaves but the remnants of winter and 3 large dogs.  I even bought a pair of what I call Mucklucs at Walmart.  $5 on clearance for a pair of shoes that can be washed without fear of damage.  Oh yes, I know there is a lot more to do, but DooDoo is the priority.

What are YOU itching to do when Spring has sprung?

  2. Snow here too, Carol. Woke up to a few inches, and it still coming down. I love your afghan! Nothing like a long-term project, but one that doesn't exhaust us as we go. Then before you know it, you have achieved something beautiful! I can't wait to see some warmth in it.

  6. Your afghan is going to be so pretty Carol. we have actually been spoiled since early Feb. here with spring warm temps on the weekend-so I am spoiled on that-but then gets winter cold during the week I am looking forward to lots of seed planting in my jug greenhouses and yard work too-we have big tree limbs down all over here

  7. :) I remember years ago wanting to hire a dog doo cleaner. Now, just the cats to deal with. Not exactly pleasant, but neatly contained. Love the progress of the afghan and wishing you on to warmer colors!

  8. Interesting to see the progress...I need to go back and find your first with the colors listed. And I feel your pain with the doggy-doo. Not fun after a winter of snow.

  9. We had snow as well...drat. I was so hopeful that for once March would be a gentle month. I can't wait to open a few windows and let some fresh air in that's not sub zero...LOL

    By the way I posted a pic of the McMansions.

  11. Cool looking February. I have a friend doing this with fabric for a quilted temperature calendar. It's so interesting, but variation here isn't enough to make it pretty like yours! I just look forward to sitting out on the back deck to hand stitch as soon as it's warm enough! Maybe on Tuesday, when it finally goes into the 70s for a few days, but some of them are rainy. =P

  12. Curious to know....I assume the black line signifies the change of month? Don't miss the doo doo detail, but do miss my doggies!!

  14. I like the temperature idea, may have to try that some time! Catching up with you here, you've had so much going on. The neighbors behind us cater to blue birds so we have them all over visiting our yard, so pretty to watch them. Glad your sister is safe, how scary for that to be going on. Sending you hugs and hoping for warmer temps for you soon!

  15. Sorry I haven't been by for awhile Carol. I just read your past 4 or 5 posts, hadn't seen any of them before I'm sorry to say. Love the whole idea of your temperature afghan! Who thought that up, what a fun way to record the weather. Glad your sister is safe, sorry she and you too had to go through that scary ordeal. She is lucky to have you and Terry looking out for her as well as other neighbors. I've got good neighbors too, mostly. The light pillars look astounding! never seen anything like that but I'm not out after dark much. Oh yeah, and your blue birds are fun! I've seen them pass through here but sure if they nest here. We put up blue bird houses but didn't monitor them and other birds and yellow jackets took them over. Very springy here with daffodils blooming all over. Got my roses pruned and the apple trees. Been doing lots of fence work too after that flood that went through last December.
