Yesterday I was supposed to go to the QOV sew-in 25 miles north east of me, but after shoveling my sidewalk in the biting wind I decided my safety was more important. I knew that it would be snowing at my house before it would up there and with the wind gusts so strong, I would be driving home in a whiteout. The snow started at 1 p.m. I decided to work on some blocks for a QOV quilt first. There were a lot of leftover squares made of 2 rectangles so I just added 5 plain squares for dark and light blocks. I have 17 of the 20 needed finished.
Then I finished the ditch quilting on this quilt. (For full view, click on Kaleidoscope in my Label list on the right sidebar).
This was the view out of my studio window. They would rest here awhile, then go to the feeders, then come back.
Only one squirrel braved the weather to clean up under the feeder.
While I had the green fabrics out last week I chose 2 more groups to cut for Trip Around the World. My orange stack chair is so dated! I have yellow and brown ones too!
This is the scene out my front door at 11:30 last night. I think we had about 8-10" of snow at that point. The wind was really howling. I missed the lightening and thunder and a couple towns even had hail with the thunder snow.
It's groundhog day, but they cancelled it here because they know what he will see tomorrow without taking him out in the elements.
