THE WEATHER....

..... today is ....

 

now this is not much to many of you ... but for us here in Crewe this is an ANNUAL event.. and sometimes NOT AT ALL!.. so its news for us xx lol xx

SO... Im not going out in that .. let the rain come and take it away .. soon x

I finished the second half of the 2014 B-O-T-M from Erin...


I have quilted around the blocks and while I am deciding what to do in the centre I have attached the binding and am LOOKING at it xx lol x

 

I quickly layered and quilted a baby quilt ....

 

...and finished making the top of my RETIREMENT quilt ..


I have to decide what to do ... if anything with the borders x It currently measures 68.5 inches .... and I need a BIG piece of wadding x You may remember the girls I work with made me signature pieces .. that I have used as centres for Dresden blocks..


We are going out for a meal to-night and will be able to show them where I am up to x It may take me another twelve months to layer and quilt ... but its half way there xx lol x

... It is dark and hail stoning ...so the snow will be gone soon xx

Keep warm and safe whatever your weather to-day xx

Snow! You mean you're not going to make a snow angel?! Come on, get out there...LOL! We've had next to none, normally we are snowed bound by this time of year. The weatherman said maybe by next week I can build a snowman...HOPING!

I absolutely love your retirement quilt - very well done! The girls will all be thrilled that you have made something so nice out of those little bits they gave you!

Stay warm.

Love the quilt and the blocks - the best thing about snow is that school will close so I will get a bonus sewing day

You are right. Who cares what the weather is doing as long as you still have power and can sew.

So much lovely stuff and I look forward to what comes through my letterbox now and more importantly what I have to do.
Thanks Diane, you are a star!

Still looking out at the white stuff although the roads are clear. At least you have provided colourful cheeriness to brighten the day.
