Tuesday

Yesterday we had a Farmer's Wife sewing day at The Cottage. The tables were full of gals cutting and sewing with all different kinds of fabrics. I set up my machine and had all of the necessary tools ready and couldn't find the six blocks I had cut out the night before. Did I leave them home? Yes, I did. Luckily for me, my husband delivered the missing baggies to me at the shop and I was all set. He's a keeper. I managed to finish four blocks and parts of the other two.
I mentioned before that our guild was doing easy applique blocks for the year. Last month I was fortunate to win a set of snowman blocks.The guild supplies the background and pattern. Here is my heart block for February.
During the last storm, I tried to take pictures of the snow flying in the air. Can you see the tree in the photo? I thought that turned out kind of neat. I love the mornings when I wake up to scenes like this outside.


Sleep At Home Retreat starts tomorrow. I need to get my things together so my husband doesn't have to make any 'emergency' trips to the shop.

Love your photos, Jeanne. And I also love the idea of a sleep at home retreat, that would be a good fit for me. Happy quilting and sewing. :)

I'm recognizing some of the same fabrics in your Farmers Wife blocks... you have great taste! Snow is so pretty until you have to shovel it, or drive in it! I have a sleep at home retreat in mid-March... can't wait!!! Pack your stuff and have a great time at yours!

Love your snow pics. That is the one thing I really miss - the mornings with the sparkling clean snow with the bright sunshine bouncing off it. Enjoy your 'at home' retreat.

Enjoyed your pictures. Had to laugh about your story of forgetting your blocks! So like me. At least your husband could bring them to you. Looks like you might not be getting as much snow as we are. I have cabin fever!
