I LOVE the snow!!

So, you better believe I am just LOVING it here in Rochester, New York, right now! I think we have about a foot and a half of snow right now, not as much as I would like, but it will do. I think I am the only one here who is thrilled about the weather. I get so much more energy when it is cold and snowy. I love all that cold and snow encompass..soups and breads, casseroles, warm, cozy houses, and quilts!! Speaking of which, I didn't do anything last night quilty, but I did do a tiny bit of knitting on a sock. Working 10 hours on Mondays just wears me out.
I did get 16 of these blocks done for a Tattered Pioneer block swap on the Homesteading Today quilting forum on Sunday. Instructions were for manly colors and the center square had to be this navy color. I did buy the fabric for the center squares, but the bigger blocks came from stash. I like the way they turned out and can't wait to see the ones I get back!

Hopefully tonight will be pinning the Favorite Things swap top and maybe even starting to quilt it. Not sure, though. I am thinking I might get more accomplished if I jump from project to project..that way I won't get bored. Hmm..dilemmas... dilemmas..


  1. I am laughing b/c I have about 2 inches of snow and am calling a snow day! i hope to pin in my favorite/quilt and work on it tonight. I was going to FM quilt it but am now thinking I may just do the same ole same old and go border to border. I am looking forward to seeing how you set yours together. cw

  2. I love that outer fabric - looks like a favorite shirt of hubby's that I cut up into quilting fabric.

  3. Hey! Where is all the fabric you bought at JoAnn's the first night we met? LOL. I do recognize the blue.
    I love it! Turned out nice.
