...a gorgeous view of the WV mountains I get to enjoy everyday. Also the place Bri proposed earlier this year! [Not taken on that day.]

Hmph.

It isn't another snow day - although it should be! We're expecting an ice/snow storm by noon. So we'll see if we have to leave early or not today.

Hoppo Bumpo's blog is hosting a seam-along for a few weeks. This week is the french seam. The damn french seam. The faux french seam I can deal with. The real thing is misunderstood.

Although I have never actually tried the french seam, it is majorly confusing to me. It must be so overwhelming that I've never dared to try. Tonight I plan to try! I will sit down with a fresh seam and try to figure how the french seams steps work.

Next week Hoppo is working is going to do the hong kong seam finish - which I plan to practice too!

I also need to finish my purse and curtains...
