We really do have snow on the ground! In this flowerbed it is about 16" deep. It was heavy wet snow too, not like the fluffy stuff when it first came down. I shoveled about 4" off the sidewalk. My back complained later.
This is turning toward the driveway from the porch. In the grassy areas it was about 12" deep in the morning. It got up above freezing so the snow is compressing now. The pile is by my driveway, where my plow guy pushes it.
The border is on the Christmas quilt. I decided to use some denim in the border too rather than try to match the checked flannel if I pieced it. It isn't spectacular looking but it is a quilt that will be crumpled up on the couch, not hanging out full view.
This is the piece I used on the back. It is a brushed Moda print from one of their Christmas lines about 8 years ago. I had a huge piece of it and it is so soft. It's a deeper color than it looks here and the dots are deep red.
I quilted it last night too. I just did a meander free hand and went around the embroideries instead of through them. Now I need to pick a binding.
Don't you think my refrigerator belongs in that commercial where they show a bunch of things that look like faces? I forget whose commercial it is.
A friend made the potholders and gave them to me last year. I like them as eyes and they are way too pretty to get dirty.
