this is the last report for this year, and i've done well!
this last week i got the "Grammercy Stars" quilt top into one piece, and I've started piecing the "Christmas Rails" quilt. I should have that top in one piece by Wednesday of this week, which will be just in time to start and probably finish a Christmas UFO from years past.
Many years ago Planet Patchwork had a mystery quilt going using 9 patches and borders. And then they threw us a surprize by tilting and whacking those lovely 9 patches.
That's where i stopped on my original quilt. But the good thing was that i had also cut up some Christmas fabric for the same pattern, AND i have enough of it to make a Christmas quilt just like the 'Rose Trellis" quilt that i made earlier this year. So i'll have a Christmas quilt with strippy 9 patches on point, alternating with a lovely red and green print from the fabric line "Aunt Lucy's Cottage" by Blackbird designs for Moda.
And did i mention that we're getting snow, and lots of it, today and tomorrow???
YES WE ARE!! The weathermen are calling for 8-10 inches of it. It started snowing last night (Christmas)about 7 pm. And since we're in the "heavy snow belt" they don't expect the snow to let up until early Tuesday morning, which will give us 36 possible hours of snow. So far it looks like we have 3-4 inches accumulated, with no let up in sight.
So everything that can be is closed. With the exception of Pam's Quilting Studio, which will be going full blast, of course.
the picture above from 2008, shows our complex in the snow. Now just add on another 6 inches of snow and you'll be seeing what i'll be seeing.
of course this snow will also delay my getting a camera to take pics of all this Winter Wonderland, so you'll just have to be patient another week or so.
ps. forgot to add that the pond is frozen except for the very center where the fountain is. the ice is probably about 1/4 inch thick.
