Winter Blizzard

I thought it would be fun to share a little about my part of the world.

The following photos are slightly dark and ‘blue’.  Yesterday, I was stitching all warm and snug inside my cozy home, so most of the photos of the blizzard are taken from inside, looking out.

Today, the sun shined briefly, but many 1000’s are without power.  Mine is restored, and I am home from work for the day, so as soon as I post this, I will be going back upstairs to do some quilting.

I put away the Christmas decorations, and realized that I don’t have table runners and table toppers that I can use throughout the year.  So I will be adding these types of projects to my FOCUS list.

I stitched together a curved nine patch (also known as Glorified nine patch) table runner.  In fact, I have made two.  I must’ve been mentally far away, because I cut out enough extra parts to make two.  Sheesh!  I forgot to take a photo, but the free pattern that I downloaded many years ago, is still available from Connecting Threads.  You can find it here.

Pin basting, stitching in the ditch, and removing the pins are all completed.  Here is a look at the back (I don’t know why I would remember to photograph the back and not the front):

I could call it done, but where is the fun in that?  I will be doing some decorative free motion quilting (actually all of the stitching in the ditch was done free motion).

And I will show you the front when I am done.

I promise.
