Hunkered down!

Well this has definitely been the biggest winter storm I have ever seen! It took my husband 2 hours to dig out this morning, but he did it and made it to work. He works security at a hospital, so he had to go. The kids are all home from school and we have been digging out all morning. Here are some pictures, I won't bore you with all that I took because I know most of the midwest and north east are dealing with the same thing. The last I heard we had 21 inches, and the drifts are up to 4 feet! We live next door to a park with a great sledding hill and I have seen a steady stream of kids heading over there all morning with their sleds.

Meanwhile I have been needle punching another heart. This one is called Tulip Heart and is another design by artist Lori Brechlin of Notforgotten Farm. I love her color choices!
This is another big one, and I am punching it on my rug hooking frame. The cover with the center opening is a little thing I made to keep my wrists from getting scratched up by the frames pins.
Isn't this going to be pretty! Here is a pic of the right side. All I have left is the background.
I have also been working on the block I am doing for "Love Quilts". A little more progress on this one:
