Snow Day

We just got hit with another winter storm. It is currently covering the sidewalks again. We will probably have to shovel the snow a couple times for this one. They were predicting anywhere from 6" - 14" but I don't think we're getting quite that much.

The step out of the back door is almost buried. I'm paranoid about driving on bad roads and only do it when absolutely necessary. All things considered, we decided to take a snow day today.

I worked on my disappearing nine patch quilt yesterday. All the blocks are made! This has been by far the easiest quilt I have made, so I highly recommend this pattern if you need a quilt in a hurry. The unbordered top will be 56" x 70".

It is laying out on my living room floor, so I'll have to get the top finished ASAP or it risks becoming a rug.

And I did actually start on my Project 144 skirt. And I didn't like it. I made it much too short.

It looks more like a beach coverup than a skirt. But the good news it, the leftover  piece of fabric I cut this out of makes a great skirt!

I'll be working with the second piece instead of the first. I may add trim to the first attempt and layer it over the second. Lets see what happens! I am making this up as I go.


  1. Look! You made a sarong and didn't even know it :) Looks great :)

  2. That is a great pattern for a nice quick quilt. Love your fabric choices. Hope you don't have to venture out in the snow. It looks so cold!

  3. Well, it's a start. You'll get it figured out and it will look great!
