Snow, Snow, Snow, Snow and MORE SNOW!!!

Will it ever end?
The phone just rang...automated message from Upper Adams School District:
"Due to the weather, school will be closed tomorrow."
They were all ready scheduled to be off Friday and Monday, so they won't go back until next Tuesday.

Top is done so I'd consider this a bit over half finished. Will need to piece the backing as I started with a fat quarter bundle and none of them are large enough...decide on what to bind with, and how I want to quilt it. Probably just stippled; it's got a lot of seams! Mail deadline is March 1st, so I'm doing okay!

Boys will be boys!

Why do males constantly feel it's necessary to mark their territory or prove their masculinity or whatever makes otherwise normally sane people attack each other and threaten to drop the other to the ground?!!

Steven was humbly shown that 30 isn't old ... and that his big brother can still take him!

A sneak peek at what I'm doing for this round of the doll quilt swap. My partner (who shall remain a secret) indicated she liked contemporary fabrics. These are from the Amy Butler daisy chain line. A border tomorrow then I can decide how I want to quilt it. It was, all in all, a productive weekend.

Bee Crazy Swap Block

So I had a rare four day weekend....spent a good deal of it sewing. Had a couple of swaps to get done, and am happy to say, was very successful! This block is for the February recipient of our Bee Crazy Virtual Quilting Bee. March is my month; I need to come up with something soon and start preparing my fabrics to send out. What to do...what to do?!!!
