Icy Sunday

We are getting the freezing rain that has plagued much of the country. Our trees are coated.
I took this picture through the screen, so it isn't really showing up like I thought it might. I am not going outside to get a picture, so this will do. So far, we haven't lost power. Some not too far from us have lost power, however. Keeping my fingers crossed.

DH and I got the Merry, Merry Snowmen quilt hung up for the season.

These little guys make me smile every time I look at them. They are going to be a great addition to my minimal decorations this year. I am getting old. I don't have a lot of enthusiasm when it comes time to pull out the bins of decorations. I put fewer ornaments on the tree, but I told myself that I was just reducing the temptation for the 15-month old who will be coming to visit us soon.

I spent the rest of the morning and early afternoon hours sewing blocks. I kept my fingers crossed that we wouldn't lose power, and I have been lucky. I have now finished 30 blocks for the Under the Stars quilt.

That's it for now. Thanks for stopping by.


  1. We had some ice, sleet, snow thru the weekend and the heavy ice is to come into the area later tonight into tomorrow. We have the farm generator primed incase and I ran out to pick up the 'things I need' for my Mom - she didn't really need them, just that storm panic.

  2. Love your Christmas quilt.

    Brrr, it never gets that cold here!! Keep warm!

  3. Your Snowman quilt is absolutely adorable. It looks quite festive in your dining area. I vacillate between am I going to bother with Christmas decorations or not. We usually go out of town for the holidays. I love the tree up but it is a lot of work!

  4. Looks like a lot of areas have had a really cold spell.
    Your quilt looks lovely hanging in your home.

  5. both quilts are so exciting. I'd love to have a snowman quilt like yours... wonder if that will happen??
    It goes great with your wall color. We have ice and snow, but the sun came out so maybe the sidewalks will thaw. It's winter.
