Wild Wednesday Snow

Wednesday morning I woke up to quite a surprise......let's call it four inches of snow.

Kids got off school but I still had to go to work.

Then in the afternoon I got an email from the hubby......let's call it heavy snow, up to 12 inches, during the evening rush hour.

Hmmmmm, guess who left early that day! And glad I did cuz when that snow hit, it came down with a vengence! It took some folks 6 plus hours to make the commute home......and some just abandoned their cars in the snowdrifts and walked.

But the next day, the sun shone for a few hours and it was pretty.....

The dogs had a load of fun in the snow.....see them trying to catch snowflakes on their tongues??

The butterfly bush did not have so much fun....

I even had a little time to get some quilting done.....

I love quilting leaves and vines......its very soothing to me and its really hard to mess up too.

Tonight I am going to quilt my snowflake top in honor of Wild Wednesday and to get ready for the next round of snow moving through the area.

Have a good weekend!

This past weekend my mini quilt group the Wild Threads got together for a marathon with my other quilt group, Baltimore Modern. I was stressing that day.....and not feeling well from a cold. But I managed to pin baste a whole stack of quilts.

That's the have to wait until they are done to see the fronts!

Aren't I a tease.......

And here's the prize for the 100th posting......going to "From A to Z".

That should give her a head start on Christmas 2011! That blackish round thing???

It's a pincushion......

Now I just need a glass of milk to go along with it.

Now, taking stock of my 2010 sewing goals, I managed to obtain one out of the 5 or 6 I had.

I managed to clean out my UFO's so I am happy about that.

For 2011, I decided on a different kind of goal.......are you ready????

I am not going to buy ANY fabric this year.

I am not going to buy ANY fabric this year.

I am not going to buy ANY fabric this year.

I am not going to buy ANY fabric this year.

I am not going to buy ANY fabric this year.

Imagine that!!!!!!
 From 1/1/2011 until Black Friday, cuz I love shopping on Black Friday and I can't give that Black Friday 2011 will be Fabric Friday 2011!!!

Now to start digging into my vast stash......

Keep Warm and hope we get some snow here in Baltimore, all the storms keep missing us and we just have the dreary cold weather and no pretty white stuff.
