these weather statements and storm pictures!!! This is where you can also see the radar map showing the movement of this storm as it heads out towards the Atlantic. I am very happy to be here in my little house safe and warm.
Where I live looks rather pretty all decked out in that white stuff see how nice the snow looks on my neighbors roof line, almost a Rockwell!
I have a boneless pork roast in the slow cooker and the aroma wafting throughout the house is wonderful. I am going to have pulled pork this evening, I can't wait. Yummy.
A few years ago I began a quilt for a friend using the free 2008 scrappy hearts free pattern from Cindy Carter using some of her mums' clothing in it as a memorial quilt for her. I had used some of the clothes to make pillow for her brothers and sister, but the the rest were to be sewn into a quilt. I only have 2 more blocks to make and then I can begin to assemble it, but for some reason it seems to be avoiding me, I just can't seem to get the feeling to work on it. I promised myself I would finish this quilt and this is the time now to pull out the blocks and get it done, even though I am really wanting to work on the pieced border quilt, but that too is facing a problem. The design roll I bought doesn't seem to have a huge variety of fabrics in it so I will be cutting some from the bit of stash I have here.. Last night in anticipation of me finishing the Scrappy Heart, I tea dyed a nice white cotton sheet for the back of t, but it turned out light even though I used quite a number of tea bags soaked in very hot boiled water, the first time, it was too light, so I did it again this morning, but it hasn't turned out much darker I may have to break down and buy some dye.
It never hurts to have a few problems with a project, those rekindle some of the energy to get the problems solved and finish it. Least ways that is how I sometimes get through those projects I seem to have lost focus in.
Time for me to say cheerio for the day, so come back and visit with me tomorrow, hopefully I will have something of interest to share.
It's a great thing when you realize you still have the ability to surprise yourself. Makes you wonder what else you can do that you've forgotten about. ~Alan Ball
