The rest of the weekend was spent with rotary cutter in hand. I cut pink and neutral strips for this month's Rainbow Scrap Challenge blocks. I trimmed scraps. I cut tiny 1" tumblers from the Civil War fabric I purchased in Gettysburg several years ago. I also cut the next 6 hexie fabrics for my hexie I-Spy quilt.
|Please let me know if you find any hexie fabrics in your local store. |
I would love a 5" charm square and can trade or pay...
You may recall from last week that I was debating whether the setting triangles should be smaller on the I-Spy project. I started this little cat mat with smaller setting triangles but I'm still not really decided. I think even if I do decide I want them to finish in this smaller size that I should still make them with the 2.5" black strips so I have room to trim them down.
I hope y'all appreciate this snow photo. I was kneeling out the back door at work to take the photo. As soon as I clicked the shutter button, a gust of wind blew it off the back steps into a snowbank. I had to take 3 steps in my socks and then proceeded to drop my iPhone in the same snowbank. It's not the best shot but we went with one-and-done!
Speaking of snow...we finally got a little last night and it's still snowing!! It's the pretty, fluffy flakes so I don't mind.
I had a little trouble getting out the door this morning since the snow came from the east instead of the west. Neither Squeaky or Zorro wanted out the door either. Z was happy to go out the window to sit on "his" table for a few seconds. He wanted out again as I was leaving for work. Generally he sits on the porch for 5 minutes while I suit up and then comes right back in for the day.
Shoveling was slow going but after four rounds with the shovel my neighbors came over and helped me with their snow blower. Total shovel/blower time was >60 minutes but they probably saved me another 30 minutes. Thank God for good neighbors!!
