Blizzard!

Image result for blizzard 2017 new england

Isn't it almost spring? Isn't it too late for a blizzard? I guess it doesn't matter because this storm is heading my way! I'm not looking forward to 18 inches of snow!  I'm so grateful to be off for the next 2 days. I had good luck, for a change! I'm just hoping we don't lose power. I would love to finish machine quilting the vintage applique quilt. I'll have to see how bad the wind will be blowing. I have plenty of handwork so I'll keep myself occupied. I also bought a few quilt magazines. Trying to make it into a fun day!

These are the fabrics my friend bought as possible bindings for the antique quilt. Here's a picture of the antique quilt.

 I feel the red polka dots on the cream background would work better. It wouldn't compete with the red border on the quilt. I'm looking forward to see what she decides!

Stay safe during the storm!

    1. I don't think we got more than a foot. I guess it could have been worse. I stayed in and worked on projects. Not too bad of a day! We never lost power. So thankful about that! Hope your day went well too!

  3. Oh thaose fabrics look perfect for the antique quilt; we are having high winds here and blowing snow--we hear that it will eventually turn to freezing sleet to top it all off; our Gov. has closed ALL our roads--no travel except for emergency. Stay safe and warm hugs, Julierose
