Blizzard and Sewing



This was the view from my front door a few hours ago. That's my lamp post that looks so tiny! I think we got around 2 feet of snow but I'm not really sure. It's still snowing!

Here's  few more pictures from the storm.


This is my back door this morning at 8am. The snow did pile up even higher during the course of the day.


Here's my husband trying to make a path to our shed.


I added another row to the Downton Abbey quilt. I really love working on it. The rows are taking a longer time now. My next row will be made up of 9 blocks. After that row, the quilt top will be half done. I hope to have the top done while Downton Abbey is still on television.

 
Just a different angle of the quilt top so far.

Just heard the driving ban will be over at midnight tonight. Snow should end sometime before that. Such a long storm. I'm so lucky to have had the days off from work. Hope everyone stays safe!

    1. We got through the storm better than I had expected. I don't think small bits of fabric count! You're still doing great on your fabric diet!
      Stay warm!
