I'm tired of Winter....send sunshine and blue skies please.....
Pretty quiet weekend around here. Ice storm this morning and our church actually cancelled services. We have services three times a week, Sunday morning, Sunday night, and Wednesday night. I know that seems like a lot, but it's been a great help in my life. It's a sure sign that the roads are bad when they cancel Sunday morning and Sunday night. We did go to a brunch at some friends from our church today. It was wonderful. I wish I had taken my camera to show you all the wonderful food she served. I ate too much as did everyone else. The main roads weren't too bad but all the back roads were just terrible. A solid sheet of ice. It's been slowly melting through the day and now it's slush over ice. If it freezes up again overnight, it will really be bad tomorrow, too.
I've been making these blocks for the past few days. I have a quilt that my Gram made me and this is the pattern of it. I've had her quilt for years and years, and it's getting worn and torn in spots. I thought I would make another just for the sake of it. I do love those 30's prints. I could make every quilt with them forever I think. They really cheer me up and put a smile on my face.
I'm hosting a Craft Day at our church building on March 8th. It started out to be a few of us getting together and making the jigsaw puzzle quilt top. Now it's a full day of all kinds of crafting and a pot luck lunch. I'm so tickled that so many of the women are excited about it and joining us. I'll have to take lots of pics and post them. I'm quite excited about it myself.
I loaded up my Scrappy Stars top on the frame and hope to start quilting it tomorrow. I'm off to go watch Castaway now. I do love Tom Hanks. Hope everyone had a happy and safe weekend.
