Like most of the country this is a slow weekend due to snow. I'm not complaining.
We had over 8 inches of the very wet stuff the other night. I went out three times to knock the snow off the "pepper myrtle" in my front yard. (They are very susceptible to breaking.) In the morning I was so happy to see it standing there in one piece. But than as I finished my second cuppa coffee we heard a loud crack...the largest of the limbs had broken off. Duhhhh. On the positive side I am saving the limb to see if my BIL can use it for wood turning and there will now be a bit more sun for flowers this summer in the front bed....
Goldie has been the smartest of the bunch....she has stayed in the bedroom under the quilts for what seems like days! The sun is out this morning though so I expect Goldie sightings any minute now....I did work on a few blocks for V's latest project (bumblebeans.) She is collected 10.5 (unfinished) house blocks to make quilts for the homeless in NYC. I'm going to try and have 6 ready for tomorrow's mail pickup...two down and 4 to go.
The second went together so much faster than the first I don't think this should be too big a hill to climb!Oh...and happy Valentine's day! The block above is from my 1860's applique quilt. I love the fabric used in this block! Half the signatures in this quilt are from Maryland and half from Pennsylvania.
