The first weekend in February, this is what we woke up to on Saturday morning!
|This is our deck, our COVERED deck!!!|
The snow didn't stop most of the day either... we ended up with 12-15 inches that day.
It was a perfect day to start my snowman quilt. I purchased this fabric on my quilt trip I took last fall. But it's very hard to work on a flannel snowman quilt when it is 40, 50, even 60 degrees outside! This Nebraska winter has been so weird.... So the first sign of snow, I decided to tackle it.
|most of the top is done!|
Of course, I get this far, and I'm out of fabric. I didn't exactly buy the fabric and the pattern together, so I was stuck. A few weeks later, I did make a trip to Fremont and purchased additional fabric. I'll add a skinny red border and then an additional wider black border after that. I'm not sure if I'll be able to quilt it or if I'll tie this one. (I'm a chicken, I know. It's big, it's flannel, and so far, the mega quilter is not up and running. Stay tuned.....) Now that it's the first of March, I better hurry up and finish it. I may not see anymore snow until next winter!
