It snowed here yesterday- what a beautiful night! At 11pm, the snow had stopped, the air was so still and the trees were crusted with the heavy wet snow! Don't you just love a night like that? Magical! We tried to take a picture but it did not come out.

There are 8" +++ on the deck- this storm had no wind and the snow is so heavy; the railings are piled high with snow caps.

Don't forget- Today is the last day for the giveaway... very exciting! I have snowman bowls filled with entries. I know I could use an automatic generator thing, but this is more fun!

On another note, I am going to start making a block a week following the Civil War Quilts posted by Barbara Brackman. She is going to post stories and a block every week. Not usually my colors, but I am going to try, and try to use up some of my older fabric in this one. A fun project- check it out!
This is my Block #1.

Off to make Block #2 and then write instructions for the May Quilt in our "It's the BOMB!" series. Baskets. Flowers. Dreaming of spring!

Check out our web site- now would be a fun time to make either of our heart quilts- either Little Bits of Love from the"It's the BOMB!" series or Heart Strings from the "Wall hanging Wednesday" series. Both are a lot of fun!

So many quilts, so little time!
Happy quilting

  1. How fun! Both the snow and the blocks!! Love to look at the snow, don't like it so much when the work begins to clean it up outside :) If I wasn't already feeling overwhelmed from what I've committed myself to this month, I would be all over your block sew along... those are great!


We love to hear from you! So leave us a note and please come back soon!
