Here’s a photo from Sunday--- 5 inches of fresh new snow. We got Eric back to school for the next semester and Chelsey is facing finals beginning today.

Over the weekend I made 16 more blocks on my red and green quilt. So I have 32 completed with 32 more cut out. Last night, Chelsey had night class and Don got called back into the office, so I stitched all of the four patches together.
I’m thinking about a couple of small borders, but we’ll have to look at it after all 64 block are together.

The Packers are a game away from the Super Bowl so life is good at our house.

Gratitudes:
1. Eric’s Safe travel home
2. Quilters checking on me after not posting in a week.
3. The hum of my sewing machine- I never take it for granted.

Those four patches are the perfect way to spend an evening. And I love your buggy with the snow. Hope you have a great week. Sounds like it is off to a good start.

Go Packers! Bret looked great on Saturday. I think they'll beat the Giants, but I don't think they will beat the Patriots in the Super Bowl.

Interested in placing a bet on the outcome of the game?

Sitting here, quilting in temperatures that are meltable and hearing my children splash in the pool with my hubby as I stay inside sunburnt from yesterday I really want that snow and that view of yours. Cheers from Cheery Cherry

Sounds like a good day even with the snow. No snow here -- though we are supposed to get some soon. I'll take that over the sub-zero wind chills they are also predicting.

Darlene said...

Beautiful snow! Sometimes I really miss it. :-)

I'm glad you a little time at your machine. :-)
