Snow Storms Make For....

Good sewing time.

Lots to show you.  As I said before I have joined along with Huckleberry Stitches to do a monthly mini from the book 101 Fabulous Small Quilts.  This month's quilt is called "Answer All Invitations That Ask You to RSVP" on page 22.

This was a fun quilt.  I used a charm pack.  It sort of reminds me of Blueberry Cobbler with cream.  

Next up is my Temecula Quilt Co. Calendar quilt for February.

I love Log Cabin Quilts and this was a quick quilt.

I had a change of plans while working on my Medallion quilt.  I decided this is as far as I am going to go with it.  My husband likes it just the way it is.  

So this is where I leave it  It will be to next top to be quilted.  This was started 2 years ago.  So I now have another project box emptied.

I showed you the finished Autumn Mystery top.  Well I got it pinned and started machine quilting it.

I thought I started this last year...but it was started in October 2013.  Another UFO will soon be finished.

I haven't worked on my Hip Chicks BOM.  While checking out my applique folder I came across this unfinished block.

I believe this is from September.  I finished it last night but still need to iron and trim.  The markings on the background are where I used a frixion pen to mark the placement.  They will disappear when I iron the block.

I've told you about all the snow we have gotten.  Totals are around 20" or more.  We have a small dog and she got buried in the snow when we let her out.  So my husband shoveled the lawn...yes I said the lawn.  Now Sammie has a couple of trails to run in the snow.

Not only did Sammie appreciate it but the birds did too.  This is a spot under the bird feeders.  This sweet Junco finds it much easier to get to the dropped seed.

I'm not sure if I will get much done this weekend.  My sweet baby brother is having his third brain tumor surgery.  It's the type of tumor that keeps coming back.  We will be at the hospital tomorrow morning.  Please keep him in your prayers.

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you are keeping warm and are doing something you love.

Hugs, Cathy

You are getting a lot done. The blue piece caught my eye. I am going to go pull that book out and refresh my memory of what all is in it. Do you display the mini quilts on the wall, in a basket, on a table?

I love all of these! Would love to have one of each of the small quilts, especially the 'blueberry crumble' and the pineapple and sheep. :) Great job! Sending healing thoughts to you and your family.

Your snow work is gorgeous. I love the blue and tan one.

Sending positive thoughts your way. So between being buried under tons of snow and probably having a lot of nervous energy, you've gotten so many wonderful projects done! Good for you.

Gorgeous quilts! We had to shovel the lawn back when we had dogs ... our Lab didn't like getting her chest wet (water or snow) so she wouldn't go out in the snow if it was very deep. Praying for your brother.

Ooh that first mini is absolutely scrumptious!! Love the other and the medallion, I agree I like it just as it is. Don't you just love the Frixion pens...I use them all the time.

Shoveling the lawn - yes, I'm familiar with that, lol. I am praying for your brother, hon, and praying that it never comes back!!! {{{{{{{{{{hugs}}}}}}}}}
