Now please don't tell Marlene, but I got my snow day today! I just know she's going to take it very hard. I'd woken about five o'clock and looked outside. There was still something coming down, but I could see the street in front of the house and it had been traveled safely. I thought the situation was hopeless and went back to bed. Twenty minutes later the phone rang, and it was not a two-hour-delayed-opening but a full-fledged snow day!
I've thoroughly enjoyed it in a very low-key way. Spent much of the morning on the Sentimental Journey Baby Girl Quilt (gonna need a shorter, easier name soon) and am really very pleased with how it has turned out. It is about 48 inches square. Am thinking of hand-quilting it, although it may end up being tied. It's, I think, what "they" call a blended quilt but to me it's a "blurry" quilt. You can click it to enlarge and see the blur more closely!
After lunch, I swapped out the blocks from the mitten swap. It took longer than I had expected (it always does) and at a couple of points I was short a block, but in the end it all worked out.
The mittens that people made are just terrific. Some are pairs and some are lost single mittens.
It's time for Mrs. I Don't Make Wall Hangings to make a seasonal wall hanging for her office wall. Each block was accompanied by a 2.5" strip of fabric that we can use for framing or bordering or just tossing in our strip piles. Again, you can click to enlarge and see the detail people put into their blocks.
I'm ready to get going on this one next!
Yours for warm hands and warm hearts,
