Snow again...

I'm sitting here looking out my living room window watching the snow come down yet again.  It's not snowing hard but just enough to make the roads slick.  I saw a flash of red in the neighbors pine tree.  There was a male cardinal sitting in the tree.  They are so beautiful and a welcome bit of color on a gray cold day.

We were suppose to go visit my sister today, however, we did so much sliding on the road before we got to the expressway we decided to turn around and go back home.  We've rescheduled lunch in 2 weeks.

So I am going to get some more sewing done instead.  In the last 2 days I finished up #8 on my list, Quilt Doodles BOM.



It is hard to tell but the fabric I am using is a blue and tan check.  For some reason it reads gray in the picture.  I would have preferred to buy some nice blue fabric....but my goal this year is to try and use only fabric in my stash.  I need 4 yards for this quilt and this was the only blue I had 4 yards.  

Last night I got the blocks done for Lori @ Humble Quilts Midwinter Blues QAL.



Lori's directions were very easy to figure out.  I am really happy with these blocks.

So this brings us to....



My January "To Do" List is done...   This is the first time that I got my monthly "To Do" List done.

Now that I'm done I decided to work on some of the Legend and Lace Basket Blocks.  Next week I plan on getting Ashley's quilt ready for quilting.  

Hope it is warmer where you are and not snowing.

Thanks for stopping by!

Hugs, Cathy

I miss not seeing cardinals here in Colorado. Your blocks for the Midnight Blue quilt are perfect.

Your QAL blocks look fabulous! I love your snowmen too. It is a bummer you couldn't go to lunch but staying home to sew sounds like fun too :).

Wow! Your finished your list and still have month left! Bonus points for you!

Your blocks for Lori's QAL look great. And the snowmen are very cute.

Glad you are safe at home, and sewing. Sounds like a great way to spend a snowy day.
