About Me

My photo
I'm a quilting, knitting, sewing, cooking,reading, gardening nut who can never find enough hours in the day to get it all done. Then again, getting it all done is out-of-the question. I'm too easily distracted.

We had a great "Snow Event" yesterday/ last night / this morning.
The official total is 16.7".
After lots of blowing and drifting overnight, it looked something like this in front of my house:

I (not) having a wonderful time clearing the snow….it might be light, powdery and beautiful but I am starting to have trouble lifting it high enough to get it out of the way…..

While I rest my arms and back and warm myself up I can share a finished project that I got to mark off my UFO list:

Big Blue.  My Scrappy Trip Around The World quilt (Thank you Bonnie Hunter / Quiltville)!
This was the 2014 Quilt Chicks Challenge quilt.  Mine is 96" square….made from thrifted shirts with a linen backing.  It weighs a ton…and I love it.  It has been sitting waiting for the binding to be sewn on for months….and it's actually been done for a couple weeks now, but I'm a procrastinator sometimes when it comes to sharing finished projects.

Last share for now:

This…the snow over the man hole cover in my driveway.

Have a great day, chicks!

The quilt looks great. The snow I can do without. I think we got about 14 inches. Now the grate in your driveway made a pretty snowflake design. One good thing about the snow...it's pretty.
