Late TUSAL Update & Trying to Stay Positive

So I think I'm going to use "snow fatigue" as my excuse for no posts lately.  But I did take an updated of my TUSAL (totally useless stitch a long) jar, which is now much cleaner than last month, which contains proof that I've been stitching so maybe snow fatigue is not such a bad thing (yeah right....).

New for this month was lots of red from the HIH Collectors Heart I stitched for my sister which went out in the mail today (her birthday!) and orange from my February smalls choice which I can't show until later this week.
Here is the heart finished.  My sister opted to frame it local to her so I sent it out as is.  She seemed very pleased with it.
As you are aware, my neck of the woods has had an exceptionally cold and snowy last few weeks and its really been tough to not bury myself in a snow bank in despair.  So when I saw this lovely frost gift on my window on Valentine's Day, I decided to try and capture the incredible beauty that Mother Nature gifts us with if only we can see it.  To me it's like a tree of life in ice.

That design is on the inside of the storm window!  And the next day, it had morphed into this beauty.

And for a final taste of what we've been having, here are some photos of a window on the 2nd floor of one of the hospital's I work at.  I considered it my own mini-Alps.  It's a good thing I took the photos when I did because it's all been shoveled off now.

I can't wait for it to all go away - overnight with no messy thawing, refreezing, ugly mud season please!

At first I thought the design on your door was etched glass. So pretty! Thanks for sharing!

Those frost patterns are fabulous! I feel for you up there, but frankly it's why I live down here! :)
