Fun On Friday from Humble Quilts

The fun started on Sunday!  We were hit hard with a late February storm!  If I was retired or didn’t work it would have been perfect for lots of quilting. It basically made more work!!lol

Here’s my week at a glance.


We will have a bit of cleanup to do once the snow is gone and the ground is dry.

A couple winters ago we had massive snow and hubby invested in his back and ordered the plow!  He’s been so helpful to many! Our church is going to be a winter shelter for the month ...

One day at a time from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!


Thanks to those who suggested I start using the cloud to get access to my pictures. I know there are ways to do that. I need to investigate. One more thing to learn, but it would be a good thing. Perhaps this afternoon.

Can you believe that I have FOUR days with NOTHING scheduled? Four days????  OK - I have yoga tomorrow and a fun thing on Sunday, but I don't have to go to either of them if I don't want to. Yes - four glorious days. What will I do?? Oh - there's lots to do - trust me ...

Snowmageddon from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!


That was a lot of snow yesterday. I spent about 2 hours shoveling the driveway. I did it in sections and then DH came out to move the cars and shovel beneath those. Yep - he got the easy job! I don't mind. I got to eat a LOT of extra food yesterday and I deserved every bit!

The right side of the driveway


The plow doesn't normally hit our street until the evening so I changed all plans to venture out. Of course, the plow comes at ...

Where's the Sunshine? from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!


One of the classes I'm teaching this year is called Hello Sunshine by Kimberbell. I'm going to change the name to Where's the Sunshine? What's with all that snow outside???  I did take pictures but if I'm to get the blog post up by 7:30 - those pictures will have to wait until tomorrow. I did a wee bit of shoveling already - had to around the back door and some of the front. The rest of the fun will come after the blog!

We had Monday sewing yesterday. Not a lot of people showed up ...

stash report January 13, 2019 from Making A Lather

We have a winter wonderland here in Indiana. I love the look and sound of snow. And at my age, I don't mind being snowed in for a bit. Church was even cancelled today, which is unusual. It started snowing during the night Friday, and snowed all day yesterday.



These are the bargains I found at Missouri star before the end of the year. I wanted the special for the olfa blades.
The layer cake is a new Kaffe Fasset. I have a quilt in progress that I thought I would use it to make, but I had it ...

Snow Birds from From My Carolina Home

There have been a wide variety birds on the feeder this month, particularly when it snowed earlier in December.   DH has kept the feeder full of nice cracked sunflower seeds, and I made a suet cake for them too.  The goldfinches on the upper left have put on their more drab winter garb.  The one on the upper right is a Carolina wren, with a titmouse and then a bluebird below.  We have chickadees and nuthatches too.

We seem to have a whole family of bluebirds, three of them sharing the lower feeder on this cold and snowy day.

Snow, Outside and In! from From the Strawberry Patch...

Merry Christmas! Well, it's not like we didn't know it was coming. The snowmageddon event had been forecast for days. My daughter used this analogy earlier in the year as we awaited a hurricane: "it's like being stalked by a turtle".  Yes, we knew it was coming and we were as prepared as we could have been. The stores were depleted of milk, bread and toilet tissue last Friday. This was the

Just To Let You Know… from From My Carolina Home

I know, I don’t usually post on Tuesdays, but I wanted to let you know two things.  First, that Bernie at Needle and Foot is having a fun giveaway on her blog this week.  Remember when I did a blogger bundle for her last August?  The Colors of August placemats, plus the Improv Table Topper (made with the leftovers) set won big at the Mountain State Fair!  The set took first place in its division plus a Judge’s Choice! The prints and colors remind me of ripening grains and sunflowers in the dog days of summer. Any of ...

Simple Joy: SNOW! from Val's Quilting Studio

Nothing brings me more JOY this time of year than 
watching kids react to the first snow of the season!
They exclaim!

 They persevere. 

 They begin to roll....
...and roll....
  ...and roll!
 Nooooottt the amount you my friends are receiving back East here in the United States...but if ya ever drive by a snow filled school yard, whose fields are scattered with snowballs of a variety of sizes, you can now  smile knowing the JOY of those happy little people behind all that rolling!

Snow Day from Lovin' Life At The End Of The Dirt Road

We have enjoyed an unusually long, and beautiful Fall, but it came to an abrupt halt Saturday morning:


We awoke to about 6"


Which is quite a lot for us here in the desert. Skeet was elated:


But first things first:


Yes, even before our breakfast, critters are tended to:


And feed troughs need to be shoveled out before feed can be doled out:


With both of us shoveling, it only took half as long


Breakfast is served:


And after tending to some other chores:


And a little more time behind the shovel


DH enjoyed a well-deserved breakfast of steak ...

Beginning of Winter from From My Carolina Home

After a warmer than usual Autumn, we finally got a cold spell over the past couple of weeks, turning the remaining leaves pretty colors. Most of the trees are bare now, but a few remain here and there.  This picture is from the last week in November, early morning mist is settled in the valley with clouds low over the distant mountain ridge.

The deer are migrating.  This little group has been around most of the summer, and the little ones have finally lost their spots.

There are two adult females and three little ones.

I do have a guardian angel! from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!


You know how we always complain about the bad things that happen to us. But we don't celebrate when good things happen.  Something extremely exciting happened to me yesterday. I'll tell you about it in a wee bit.

After my morning chores were completed, I was back at work. I made the labels and got them stitched to the quilts and I finished stitching the hanging sleeve. The quilts went up on the wall for a quick photo and then I was in the car. It was 9:55. Five minutes ahead of schedule!

I had three stops ...

New Pattern—A Cottage Christmas Stocking from Telling Stories Through the Needle's Eye

Christmas will be here before we know it! The stores everywhere (on this continent and across the pond) are laden with all sorts of holiday items.  We thought we'd join them with a new pattern that you can make to grace your Christmas fireplace mantel.  

Introducing our Cottage Christmas Stocking!



This stocking pattern came about as I (Kara) found out that my guild, the Black Forest Quilt Guild, has a yearly stocking exchange. The Christmas style here in Germany tends to be a little bit more subdued, so I decided to make a stocking out of wool and in ...

Stash report April 2, 2018 from Making A Lather

Instead of the Easter Bunny, we were visited by the snow fairy. It is so beautiful. Especially, since it will not last. Spring will have it's day.
We have had a little time with our two Granddaughters.Which has left me with little time to sew. But, I don't mind.



It is time to reassess goals for the coming month for One monthly Goal. Typically, I lose time in April. There is so much going on around here, birthdays and gardening plans and the need to Spring clean. So I don't want to make goals that are ...

Snow and Slow to Lancaster 2018 We Go! from Lisa H Calle's Blog

 

 

I’m still looking for February; and searching high and low for March!

I spent the better portion of last week at the AQS Lancaster Quiltweek.  My trip began with a lovely spring blizzard which kindly dropped 12″ of snow on surrounding roads.  Moreover,  it’s timing couldn’t have been better…not.   Those beautiful, white, flakes began falling from the sky above on the day I was scheduled to leave.  But I pulled my big girl snow pants up, as high as they would go, and prayed that my 4 wheel drive SUV was up to challenge of  transporting ...
