Cold and Snowy here

Brrr. It's so cold here, and it just won't stop snowing. My bird feeder is wearing a top hat (snow is piled that high). I've been putting off getting groceries, since I hate that job, but we finally went on Tuesday evening. And I'm so glad. Now it's done, and I don't intend to go out again until it warms up some.

I'm having so much fun!!! I told you that the twins want their sampler quilts -- want me to take the one off my bed, even. Well, I'm not giving them up until I have another quilt made by me to put on the bed. I was in a BOM sponsored by This-n-That Fabrics last year, and although I haven't finished the blocks, I have enough fabric to start another sampler quilt. I really love these quilts because they are all hand-pieced and I can work on them while the kids are here and watching TV. The fabrics we used in the BOM were Williams Inn by Nancy Halverson, and they are so pretty. I have four blocks completed and one is halfway done.

My Dresden plate.

I just love these blocks. The Dresden Plate showcases some of the fabrics I'll be using in the quilt. Stay tuned for more blocks. Have a great weekend, and stay warm.
