I guess the South decided it didn’t want to be left out in the Winter Storms of the Century so this is what we are looking at.
Our DD called and asked if I would like to go to the store with her and it was just like I remember from a 32” snowstorm we had in Chicago: lots and lots of people buying groceries like they would not be able to get to a store for at least a week. It was really funny. We are told we may get up to 4” which will close down most everything since we are not prepared either to clear the streets or to drive on them.
The sane part of my day was spent putting together the DNP blocks I finished earlier in the week.
I also put a 1” inner border on: the blue stripe came from stash. Next I plan a 4-5” gray border and it will then be ready for quilting.
Earlier this week I also got my last block done for the Eleanor Burns BOM. This picture was taken prior to piecing the pieces.
This was fun: I made it a paper pieced block. I enjoyed making this one and may have to use it more in a quilt of it’s own. I also found templates for 3” drunkard’s path blocks I want to use for this quilt so I will start cutting fabric for them.
So, as I post this the weatherman is almost hyperventilating as he shows the snow coming. All schools and government offices are going to be closed. This is a really big deal here: 4".
Have a happy Valentine's Day and be sure to hug someone, it feels good.
