Crazy Weather!

It's hard to believe that it is still March and we have no snow and record high temperatures. Yesterday, it hit 80 degrees and that's just unheard of for our part of the world. Crazy weather everywhere I think. Maybe there is something to the global warming theory...

Despite how strange it is, I was glad that it was a beautiful day yesterday. My daughter ran in her first 7K in downtown Minneapolis; the Get Lucky 7K. The participants were all dressed in crazy attire - I wish I had pictures of some of the really crazy ones! There were serious runners too! Can you pick out "The Hulk" in the photo below?


Many green wigs...

And tutus...and shamrock headbands...


It was a beautiful day; over 8000 runners participated in the 7K...


My daughter wanted to run the 7K in under 45 minutes; her final time was 40:51 minutes. She said it was a lot of fun and she's looking forward to her next race! Here she is with her two friends (DD in the middle):



I know you are interested in stitching too, so here are a couple more little finishes from that bottomless basket of smalls that I am determined to conquer! Have no idea how long I have had these three kits, but they were quick and easy to stitch; I will save the finishing for another day in the not so distant future!


Hearts of America (Minnestota X2, Indiana)
The Victoria Sampler
Kits -White 25 ct Lugana and DMC

That's all I've got for you today! Thanks for stopping by.

Congratulations to your DD!! It was lucky that the weather was so nice for the runners, but maybe a little too warm?

Your little stitched kits are cute.

The weather here is crazy too. We've had 80's all week. I keep thinking it's June and not March. Kudos to your daughter for the 7K. She looks alot like you.
