    We are working on day/night # 2 of blizzard, (wind chills of -25F). One van is stuck in a snow bank, the other one has a 5 foot drift behind it....and all the highways are closed. My DH is in Chicago, (50F today), dealing with closing his brothers' affairs. Brother passed away just before C'mas, and DH is the only sibling. So...I am not going anywhere anytime soon. My neighbour a mile down the road will come and pull my van out once we are done with blowing and snowing.

    Meanwhile, I have 10 pinwheels put together, and 30 more at the HST stage. Also got caught up on a couple of projects for a class I am taking. Tonight I will make a lable to go on a lap quilt for my MIL. (I hand embroider my lables...so a good evening project.)

    What are you all doing for your New Years' weekend?

    Sounds like the perfect evening to me. While hubby is watching all his taped football games, I will be on this board and hopefully stitching :)

    I'm working on the baby quilt for my niece's little girl. She's the one whose mom said she didn't need it, but I decided to finish it and send it anyway. It's the weaver fever layout in purples and teals. I think (hope) it is going to be pretty. On Sunday, I leave to go back down to Austin to get my grandson. He just got back from visiting his other grandparents in Romania.

    I am planning to do the Planet Patchwork mystery quilt. Haven't done one in a while and it's cold and nasty here, too, so it sounds good. All I have to worry about is taking the dog out when she needs it. Have a Happy New Year!

    Just posted that I'm finally sorting the sewing/storage room. Good gracious. How did I get that much stuff in there.

    Good luck with the quilting. Hope you don't need thread before the big thaw!

    What a great way to spend a cold snowy stretch. Have fun. I hope it stops snowing and blowing soon.

    Too much snow makes good quilting weather! Stay in where it's warm and quilt!
