We finally got the snow I’d been dreaming of … I suspect we got about 4 inches ... just the right amount, I think ... enough to cover everything in a blanket of white without being so much that everything comes to a screeching halt. While most of it fell overnight, enough fell during the morning that I was able to quilt in my chair while watching the snow fall.This was the best I could do from the warmth of the house … I couldn’t find a shot that would show exactly how much we got …
And what does any self-respecting quilter do on a snow day? Why quilt, of course! I got a few more blocks done on T#3’s quilt. It’s hard to see some of the quilting from this angle, especially on the horizontal logs. I’ve got 25 blocks done now, which means that I’ve got 38 blocks and the borders left to quilt. This is going a little more slowly than I’d hoped.
Of course it doesn’t help when life interferes, like it did yesterday afternoon when I forced myself to take a break from my quilting and work on our taxes. Usually I get them done as soon as we get all the necessary forms, but this year I just couldn’t get motivated to get them done.
We’re not done with winter yet … There may not be any snow days in the forecast, but it’s looking like we’ll be having some stay-inside-and-quilt-days.
I hope that whatever you have planned for today includes a little something that brings you joy! Have a great day!
