Strange visitors and winter weather

Nothing even remotely needlework related to share with you today, but I just had to share a picture of what we found wondering our neighborhood this morning. Take a look at this...

This was taken at about 9:30 this morning and we were just starting to get a light dusting of snow. The weather forecast called for flurries today. There was no mention of emu visitors, but it was quite thrilling to see this big feathery creature walk right up to me. We were eye to eye and his feet were bigger than mine! His legs were much thinner and the knees bent the other way, but I am pretty sure my backside was smaller than his! Sorry no pictures for comparison!

By 2:00 this afternoon, this is what our flurries had turned into. Wet heavy snow is sticking to everything. It surely is beautiful looking out every window in the house though.

It is the perfect day to get the laundry moving along and then settle into my cozy chair with a little dress hemming project. My youngest will be dancing in her first velvet Irish step dancing dress this year, so I must get it hemmed and then start embroidering the designs on it soon. March will be here before we know it, and I start school again next week so I want to get a jump on it while I am still relaxed! I'll share pictures when there is something to see! If you'd like to see some of my earlier work on Irish step dancing dresses, or learn about my process for embroidering on velvet, click HERE and check out that post with lots of links to the different aspects of the process and to pictures of some of my finished work.

Happy Stitching!

  • You are so lucky to see an emu up close and personal, the snow, not so much... Lol... I enjoy your blogs very much, thanks for sharing!

  • How cool is that? He looks like he should be in Florida, not wandering around in the snow :)

  • What a strange occurence to see an emu in a populated area and to have it walk right up to you. You are brave!

    Can't wait to see your daughter's dress.

  • Okay, but don't leave us hanging!
    *WhY* was there an emu in your neighborhood this morning?
    Was he lost? Escaped? Has he been safely returned? I mean, there must be a story to go with this teaser....
