Snowbound


Winter has arrived in our part of the world.

So what could be more fun than a blog giveaway of something fun to read? Visit Colletta's blog to enter her giveaway. I heard about her from Heckety. And many many thanks to Daisy for teaching me how to do links. Never mind that I have to get out her very clear directions every single time I do it - at least I can, thanks to her!

I've resumed my quest for a way to portray a sunrise on fabric. I am going to add black binding after I quilt it. The white you see is batting to be trimmed off. I think I am going to quilt it by hand - a good project for a snowy day.

That's a lot of snow!! Oh my! Your sunrise looks wonderful, I am sure it will be a great snow-day project. I never really found a good way to hand-quilt, it always ends up hurting my fingers :/

You have more snow than we do, Diana. It's very cold here though. Only 10 degrees right now. I like the picture with your cat watching out the window. The cat we used to have would sit for a good part of the day on the back of the couch and watch the world through our picture window. I like your sunrise quilt. It is turning out beautifully. Hope you are keeping warm.

Love your quilts! Especially that bookshelf quilt at the bottom of your blog. I'm going to HAVE to put one on my to-do list.

Thanks to YOU for inspiring me!

Thanks for the link to the give away. I will never tire of your snow, though I suppose if I lived in it long enough I may.
I have never lived in snow but I love it and wish it was out my front door now.
We are in the middle of a heat wave here.
