The wind blew Saturday and Sunday 30-40 mph from the east, the direction that we have no windbreak. A friend arrived for a visit on Sunday and Monday morning it was raining, sleeting, snowing and blowing harder than ever. Knowing we couldn’t go anywhere, we each settled into a chair by the windows and as the storm raged, my friend took this picture. I’m posting it just so you know I do sit down and I love naps when Hazel sleeps on my legs.
And here is Day Two of the storm. Ha!
We had such a fun two days – Rick was gone so I didn’t even have to make real meals. The minute my friend, Carol, sat down, she had a lapful of cats.
I was at the thrift store today and got this great cotton tablecloth for $2.00. It will look great on the table in the porch.
And now a UFO report. Remember this pattern called Duet? It’s very similar to Connie’s polka dot quilt but I used a jellyroll for mine. I finally got it quilted and bound.
I also have friends who have a French Bulldog named Norman and I had this novelty fabric with Norman on it so I made him a quilt for his birthday.
We used to get sample rolls from Moda of different lines of fabric – I’ll bet I’ve had this one for 20 years but now at least I have it in rows and soon I’ll be able to show you a quilt. It’s a line of pastel brushed cottons.
Many of you have asked about the big flowers. They are from Linda Brannock – they’re working their way up the UFO list.
The Big Twelve tournament starts tonight – and then next week its March Madness!
Coming to you from snowy North Iowa.
