There Is A Snowman In My Future!

Had a great day on Saturday. Several of my friends, and I got together for a "Sew In". We had so much fun. Four of us are making a Snowman Tote of us was smart enough not to start one. Notice I said making, not finished. I spent about three hours cutting fabric (did that til 3 am), and then about three hours sewing that fabric back together. My small pieces are all sewn. I'll try to post pics tomorrow.

Home Sweet Home

So the snow stopped for a bit today. I took my camera outside and took a picture of the pines in the back and the front of our house. The front porch has three steps and they are completely buried!

Not much progress on the string quilt, only finished five more.

So I've been working on my blocks. Kind of a mind numbing process. Doesn't really take a rocket scientist. So I went from a pile of strings to this:

And then this morning, I put them up on my design wall:

Forty two blocks done!

Here We Go!

So this is what my pile of strings look like. Now I just need to keep working on them. I'm now up to 43 blocks. This is what my mess looks like:

Do you think I'll make my deadline?

There's A Snowman In My Future!

NOT! I think I'll just sit here in the house and stay warm. We got about 15" of snow last night! Way too much for us. My husband can't even get the tractor out of our garage to plow the driveway. Seems like when I can leave the house, I don't want that I can't get out, all I want to do is leave.

Should probably go to the sewing room and make a dent on the string blocks I need for a wedding gift. The bridal shower is March 23, and I only have 16 blocks made.

Here's a pic of the back of our property. You can't really tell how deep it is, but the snow looks so pretty hanging on the pines.
