Wow is it coming down out there....
And once again, Thing 2 was called off work. Much worse north of us, white-out conditions and accidents everywhere. Thing 1 was trying to scrape his windshield when he got out of work, and as fast as he scraped it off, it iced up again. Most of what you see in that pic is ice. But we had fun in it, when *I* drove! That's a pic of mum's street, we had to get groceries for her.
I have to show you some squishy mail, from Sunny at Quilting Dreams.....
Vintage sheets!! My fave! I have a collection that is going into a summer quilt, and now I really can't wait to get started! Thank you Sunny!
Sunny recently went on a quilt retreat [lucky gal] and I was so excited, she took my Fair Winds for Milady pattern with her....
Head on over to her blog HERE to see the final reveal! She also made a wall hanging for her room at the retreat!
I have to show you something else.
See those 3 baskets? A brand new purchase, from the Dollar Store - I'm getting organized! Each basket holds a quilt-in-progress. Everything from the drawings, notes, fabrics, floss, everything I need for that particular pattern. For some reason, I'm working on four patterns at once, and needed some way to keep them straight. I've finally wised up and paid attention to all you prolific quilters, who get so much done - and it's paid off already! I got so much done yesterday I didn't know what to do with myself, lol. The only thing I lost was my glasses, and they were on top of my head. I am my mother.
Got something else too, I made my very first ever [under my own name, lol] ebay purchase. I got a new foot pedal for my Featherweight.
See the foot pedal on the left? It's the original Bakelite foot pedal, and I just love it, but it doesn't love me. I have a hard time using it. My feet are so bad, and it hurts to try to use that button. You rest your toe on the button on the left, then rock your foot to press the button on the right. I wasn't using my Featherweight like I wanted to, because it hurt! So I found a new one on ebay, and it works wonderfully.
I'll keep the old one, because she's original and vintage, like me.
Whew - I think that's all - I'm going to go put on my fleecy jammies, and relish the fact that I'm not leaving the house tomorrow. I think I'll stitch the rest of the evening, watch an old movie, and listen to the muffled sounds of the city as the snow falls and falls...so lovely.
I hope you have a wonderful evening too!
