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!
