DSCN7162DSCN7161DSCN7160So I just kept on going because the snow was falling (again) and there was snoring in the quiet house and the aroma of meatballs simmering.DSCN7163Of course I have my favorites and the list grows!  Thinking ahead, the task of paper removal on the blocks will be impressive.  DSCN7164DSCN7165The Economy Blocks – how I love them!  When other projects are not going well, if I have quilter’s ‘Block’ (the terrible irony of the term!) or if I’ve just completed something and need a break … they are the perfect stand ins.  Oh, I HAVE a completion, but Suz, you cannot read on.  Promise?DSCN7153Fresh out of the dryer – soon to be packaged up and sent off!DSCN7159DSCN7156DSCN7158Finishing a piece is a happy event.

I have some serial serious knitting waiting for me this week.  I am hoping that we will have sunny days because the yarn is inky blue and difficult to manage with poor lighting.  I have been unable to work with it at night so lunch time knitting will become premium time.

Bloggers in the northeast are longing for spring.  As a gardener, I find that I need this wintry break in order to rest and restore and reunite with my indoor passions.  Long snowy days are made for seed ordering and dreaming about the placement of peonies while working on quilts and such.  Spring will come, she always does.  Meanwhile, I plan to enjoy the whitened wonderland that is my backyard.  Snow is the perfect backdrop for the scarlet cardinal and the sassy bluejay coats – no other element can showcase them in such brilliant ways.  People look at me with curiosity when I speak of my love for this season.  Lately, and especially after the last 14 inches of the white stuff, I’ve learned to zip it.  No one is amused.

  3. Hi Jody! I hope you are having a wonderful weekend so far. It has been unusually warm down our way the last couple of days and it has been heavenly to sit outside and enjoy the sunshine. It almost makes me believe that spring may actually arrive sometime soon. 🙂 I love your little quilt squares and the quilt is just precious. I hope to finish the bead work on one of my shawls this weekend and I plan to work on that tonight while I watch an old Jane Austen movie. I recently found a pattern in the new Piece Work magazine for a pair of color work gloves, that I have fallen in love with. I would love to make a pair and enter them in the fair next year. I have never done such an intricate design before and I am hoping I am up to the challenge. When I doubt myself I often think about you and all the encouragement you gave me when I was struggling with my first pair of socks. It really helped a lot. 🙂 Have a lovely afternoon my friend! With Love, Delisa 🙂


  4. The feather on your quilt is just a perfect idea here!
