What was supposed to be a trace of snow ended up to be 5-7″ and everybody who’s attending the wedding this afternoon knows why. Our neighbor’s youngest daughter wanted her wedding pictures in the snow but what remained of our snow was dirty and not much left. It started snowing yesterday about noon – a beautiful snow with no wind – highly unusual for North Iowa. And this morning it looks like a winter wonderland! All for Grace’s wedding pictures!
These photos were taken from inside so not perfect but you get the idea. I don’t dare go outside and possibly fall.
This was taken before the new snow – not very pretty for wedding pictures.
I’m happy for the wedding couple – I will also say a little prayer that the wind doesn’t come up and trap us in the hall during the reception/dance.
It’s book giveaway time again and I’m tardy at reviewing these books from Martingale.
I have shown the Feed Sacks book before and it is such a valuable reference book. I’m not into feed sacks but so many of you are and I know you’d find this book interesting – the full color pages of actual fabrics are excellent!
Blue and White Quilts follows the Red and White Quilts book and there are several scrap designs using multiple shades of blue that I’m very interested in. I have to keep this one a bit longer to study it.
The New Hexagon 2 book is for all of you who are in love with English paper piecing. Inside this book are 52 more block patterns to English paper piece along with 6 projects using the blocks.
Machine Quilting Idea Book shows 61 designs to finish classic patchwork and many of you do your own machine quilting. Included in all these ideas are 12 traditional blocks with several ideas in which to quilt each of them. For instance, the granny square block has 6 options for quilting.
And my last review is Picture Perfect by Kathy Schmitz, the ultimate embroidery queen in my opinion.
Kathy has included small patterns to be embroidered and glued to a blank greeting card – now this interests me very much because I can enjoy the actual work and then send it to a friend. I won’t find it years from now when I’m doing more death cleaning. Haha!
Both Connie and I are hooked on a Netflix series called Greenleaf – has anyone watched it?
