WIP Wednesday - Sick of Snow

I don't think I have ever been a person to bitch about the cold weather.  I am not a huge fan of the heat waves and humidity in the summer and I make that statement known.  So I tend to grin and bear whatever mother nature deals during the winter.  Alas, everyone has a breaking point and the snow is starting to get to me.  Over night we got 4 more inches of snow and ice and cleaning that off my car was not fun.

But even with the snow and foul weather, there is beauty in the world.  This past Christmas I finally remembered to buy an Amaryllis bulb.  I can't very well call this Amaryllis Musings and not have the actual plant.

Such a lovely splash of color on a grey day.

Rigging Up the Color Affection

Almost there...
I managed to finish my Sundry (I am super behind on FO posts) and went back to this project.  I may have mentioned this already but I did the majority of the second section while recovering from my surgery.  I got to the solid band of the third section and petered out.  This is the last slog that takes the longest time.  It's straight forward but the shear number of stitches on each pass is daunting.  I hope to get this done by the end of the weekend, the I can start on some new things to watch during the Olympics.

So that's all for this week.
