Hi friends! Are you surviving the Polar Vortex? If you are reading this somewhere warm, be thankful! =) The kids just went back to school today in my neighborhood after 4 canceled school days in a row! I’m sure we are well over the allotted snow days now after having 4 or 5 days cancelled the previous polar vortex go-around as well. We are not out of the woods yet with a huge snow storm heading our way next week.
Here’s what the sidewalk looks like in front of our house already:
The snow is up to their shoulders!! Any more and it will be over their heads. LOL It’s kind of fun actually. We just make sure and stock up on supplies when the roads are okay to drive.
With it being tough to get out and about, I have been staying warm inside quilting.
In my effort to lighten and brighten I made a white background album block quilt for the piano room.
Did you notice my recent acquisition of vintage alarm clocks?
Here’s a closer look:
I love them! I talked an antique dealer into letting me have 6 of them for $40.00!! Mom and Dad and I spotted them while Mom was home for a visit from Texas. There were 50 or so in boxes and when I first asked about them he said they were 10- 15 bucks apiece. I said, ” watch this Dad, I’m going to take these up there and ask if he’ll take 40 bucks.” I’m getting to be a wheeler dealer! Ha haha
I’m trying to finish writing instructions for a new pattern called Blueberry Buckle I’ll be putting out next week. Here’s a sneak peek:
Doesn’t it remind you of a blueberry desert? Yumm.
