We've so much snow now & can boast having the most snow with the last nor'easter with 25cm in one day. We will also be getting yet another nor'easter on Wednesday into Thursday.
I've been sick with a cold & I'm just getting over it now. Hopefully, with my health back, spring will arrive in full force, maybe next week?
You need a lot of sheet fabric to make a good size rug. I used 3 double flat sheets, one double fitted sheet, & two pillowcases. Baxter & Bridget just love lying on it as I move it around the rooms to capture the sun for them. It is fully washable & an old way of using up & repurposing.
Winter casualties of rural living.
She is a world traveller & had been to Spain a few weeks ago & purchased a dark brown leather hide that was also incorporated into the pillow design all around the thistles.
It was a great day, Marva brought lasagne, homemade garlic butter for a french stick & Joan brought cheese, grapes, a pear, raspberries, cake, & chocolates for our afternoon snack.
It was a full fun productive day! Many laughs were had by all of us & Baxter & Bridget entertained the guests by being themselves! lol
It is six large - 12" x 23" panels with six matching pieced blocks that take the shape of mountains & all 12 blocks are put together with mitred corners. Six are done & I have six more to do today, then all the blocks can come together & a border around & another quilt top is finished. I just love the deep dark rich colours of this quilt top.
The block of the week is somewhat behind, I'll post those blocks at the end of the week.
It really has a spring look to it with the wheelbarrow block that I'm finishing up now, then the strawberry trellis, & this week's watering can with flowers inside it.
It is hard to stay positive with all this snow & more snow coming at us again.
I started decorating for Easter & will take some photos to share with you when I'm done.
Enjoy your week, stay happy & healthy as spring is arriving on Tuesday!!
The days are longer now with the clocks springing forward last weekend & the sun is nice & warm when it is shining.
Just this snow...
Thank you for taking the time to visit this snowing part of north east Canada & do come back to see the change as spring is soon to arrive!
Have a great week!
