I have not posted in a while, cause I didn't really have much to post about. (grin) I have been in a slump. Not doing any quilting. We have had lots of snow, but I figured you all didn't want to see pictures of snow every day. LOL I have done lots of redwork this month. I am almost caught up with the redwork blocks of my Raggedy BOM. Then I can get the blocks together. I have the first Little Birdie block prepped and ready to embroider. I have the fabric picked out for Henrietta Whiskers. Now to just get with it. (grin)
I took a box of scraps that Cyndi sent me and made a table topper from a pattern in a magazine that Teresa sent me. I made almost the whole thing from this box. I think maybe a couple of the fabrics were from stash I already had. I am trying to break out of my comfort zone. I mostly do Thimbleberries patterns with dark, country fabrics. Sometimes, though, you just want to have something bright and colorful around you. With the amount of snow we have had this winter, I think I need bright and colorful! (grin) Anyway, this is what I came up with last week.
We are getting hammered with yet another winter storm. This morning was really nasty. We had freezing drizzle. It took Kevin over 2 hours to get to work. I-29 was closed about 5 miles from our house, so he had to cut across country to get to work. He said 2 cars slid off the road in front of him and his car turned around in the road. He did make it, but it was a scary ride. It is still freezing drizzle here, so I hope he can make it home safely tonight. This isn't even our winter storm. It is supposed to start tonight and continue through to Wednesday. We are supposed to have 8-10 inches of snow with strong winds. That means we will be drifted in here for a while. Kevin is taking a few days of vacation. He hates to waste his vacation, but experience tells us, he will not be able to get to work for at least a couple of days after today. The news said this morning, that this storm has the potential of being the worst our area has seen in 50 years. I am just so sick of snow. Now I am hoping we do not lose power.
Anyway, maybe I will get back to posting if I can just keep up with my projects. (grin) Everyone have a good day. Thanks for visiting. Please come again.
