welcome! and yes, nothing beats quilting in front of the fireplace on a snowy day outside! Looks like a great set of blocks you are working on!

How do you run that big spool of thread through your sewing machine?

I love your blocks - I would do that pattern if it weren't for the set-in seam - you are braver than me!

Cheers!

Love your blocks! and what a nice blog--looks cozy to me! I loved all your other posts (I'm new and this is my first time to yours). I loved the one about making 2 potholders really doesn't justify buying 40 FQ's! LOL Sounded good to me!

Welcome to the web ring, Debby! Of course, I don't know where you live that you go that much snow but I moved to get away from that stuff, LOL. Love those quilt blocks you have started!

Patti said...

Welcome to Stash Quilts Debby. yes, there's nothing like bad weather to keep a quilter happily inside. Love the blocks you are doing.

WONDERFUL post...I so enjoyed it..and I too would be in front of that fire place (if I had one) on a snowy day (if it were snowing here) sewing

Nope, no snow for this southern belle! Told my DH when we married I didn't care where we lived as long as it didn't get cold in the winter. LOL! So we moved to Tyler, TX. Had a LOT of snow that first year. So we moved back to MS. Then moved to New Orleans. They had their first snow in 17 years the first winter we were there. LOL! So back to MS we went. Lived thru a few snowstorms there before moving here to SE Texas. And SO FAR after 8 years no snow!

But I do love rainy days for sewing. :-)

My 11 year old said "is it real?" - my kids have never seen snow! What wonderful photos. Love the quilt blocks :-)

Debby, I have enjoyed reading your blog. You have just described my perfect day. Being in Australia, we never get snowy winters and I have always wanted to live through one...one day I will. I am so over summer.

Your Nickel quilt looks great, how will you set it? Can't wait to see it done.

I just found your blog and loved your photos too. Especially loved all your photos of blocks. I'm in Australia too and we're at the end of our summer and have a temperate climate but we've had a very hot summer. I don't want snow but a cooler breeze would be nice. Have fun indoors sewing while that cold and wet snow is outside LOL

I used to love snowy days, but now i always have to not only get to work on time, but also get 2 kids to daycare on time, in the snow. :-(

Your snowy dayy looks fantastic! Thanks for sharing all the great photos!
