Tuesday Tales

Today the weather was better and I was able to run errands.  Still very slippery and some blowing snow across the roads making icy spots, but in the daylight it was OK to travel.  I have been sewing--see??


The pink top is ready to quilt.  The blue top has borders.  And I have most the rows of the 9 patch sewn together.  I think the 9 patches grew--right now it measures 90x100, and I still have a side sashing and a top and bottom sashing.   It probably should have a bit of a border so that is doesn't get grubby marks on the edges.  The blue top is roughly 66x76--a nice size.  And the baby top is just big enough to cover an isolette, a tad over 36x54.  

And I did say the snow was getting deep, before we left today I took a picture--

See the snowbank behind and to the left of my car?  That is the drift that goes between the houses up on my deck.  That snowbank is higher than Ken, and he's 6 foot tall.   You can see on the sides of the drifts where he has gone with the snowblower--it looks like it's been removed in layers.  There isn't much snow UNDER our vehicles because he moves them and blows the snow from where they are parked.  This year it's been a continious battle, he and the snowblower against the snowstorms!

Well, at least it's been a powdery snow! We got some powdery a couple of days ago, but for the most part, it's been heavy, wet snow that crusts over at night.

Got out in the sun for a little bit today--it was very welcome!

I really don't know how you do it. I might be willing to TRY, for A BRIEF time.....but only after buying thousands of dollars of really really warm clothes.....


I love the border for the blue one! perfect!

But at least it was sunny when you took the picture, right? And hopefully we're in the home stretch...March is less than 2 weeks away!

You definitely have accomplished a lot! Keep it up.

I am so sick of winter and promise not to complain about the heat of summer.

I would love to have had your snow this year, but I guess it's not ment to be. What is Canada becoming with this 'no snow' thing going on - florida, with out the ocean????? lol!!!

Your projects look good, and I loved the growing 9 patch - here's an idea, stop feeing it!!!! ;-)
