    Welcome new friends!!

    Hope everyone is warm and snuggled down for the night. The Tennessee weather has been wild the last few days. Tornadoes two days in a row and it has started to snow tonight. I am ready for it. Several UFO's that need to be finished and new commitments to be started.

    The weather has been weird for us all. We had about 8 inches of snow, then we had an ice storm- an inch of ice. A day or so of near the freezing mark (which allowed us the hard labor of breaking up all that ice on the driveways), then a 2 day snowstorm of 20 inches of more, and now it's above freezing during the day and making a heck of a soupy mess of the giant snowbanks. Nothing like sloshing through a half a foot of melted snow cone-watery stuff. And, it's refreezing at night. I am waiting for the stuff on the roof to come down in an avalanche, because that freezing rain layer is still up there on the roof, buried underneath those 20 inches. The avalanches in the mountains kills skiers and snowmobile riders- it's worse when it's the kids dying. Not that I want the tornadoes my eastern friends are getting, but I will definitely appreciate our calm weather for the next 4 days or so. I can sew without having to stop to shovel.

    Stay warm. I plan on it here. Have to work 1/2 day tomorrow. Afterwards I HAVE to do the home blessing and clean this dusty house!! Then I may be able to play in the sewing corner. Several projects are screaming to be started and others are yelling to be fininshed!

    Here's the block I made for Miriam:

    It was almost an accident- the center was from a block that I never finished, and the edges were from another, and when I picked them up and laid them next to one another, well the colors fit and I liked very much the secondary design it make. I have no idea if this particular layout is in Rhonda's files or not, but I thought it was cute.

    Oh, and please excuse the colors- it's not that yellow, and it's much straighter than it appears.
