Tuesday – Chelsey made it home and Eric made it back to school. The snow has stopped for a little while at least. Last night after knocking out the daily chores I added 7 appliqued pieces to the quilt block I’m working on.

Amid the snowstorm last Thursday the mailman brought me a gift from a friend. The Blue willow heart now hangs on my wall in the dining room.
Knowing Chocolate is a girl’s best friend, her gift will warm me on the coldest of days—and I may even share. The fabrics are beautiful, It’s a toss up—to I cut them up and use them, or leave them whole and just hold onto them for a while. Tough call.

I’m getting a little hungry for spring, but I know I have a considerable wait. I’m just focusing on my quilting though my garden is not far from my thoughts.

Glad to hear everyone is safely returned. I was able to get quite a bit of sewing done this weekend which is only making it harder to return to work today.

I always worry about my family traveling in bad weather. Glad everyone is safe. I'm not sure spring is ever going to come. I'm trying to think happy thoughts, but all this snow is starting to make me cranky!
