it snowed last night 

a lot!

this morning the DH dug out paths on the back patio for the dog 

there's about a foot of snow out there 

 since I stayed in the house yesterday I spent some time in the studio at the sewing machine 

a couple of years ago I got a piece of red, white and blue patchwork in a UFO exchange, and it's been sitting around waiting for me to figure out something to do with it 

 I decided it's been hanging around long enough --- I cut it into 6 inch squares and stitched it up with some solid blue fabric to create this charity quilt top 

there's probably enough more of that patchwork to do a couple more quilt tops --- we'll see what other things I can work it into 

 while I was at the machine I got this piece all stitched together 

now I just need to make the sandwich and do the quilting -- and maybe some embellishing too 

I thought I would be starting into the peacock project today when the mail man brought the package, but it turns out they shipped me the wrong fabric, and there's no more of what I had actually ordered available --- nuts --- guess that project is going to wait until I can make the trip to the fabric store --- probably not for a week or so 

we won't be going anywhere today either -- I don't feel like clearing a foot of snow out of the driveway, and there's really nothing we need that bad!

Stay safe out there. I love how the red white and blue quilt followed the lines of a snowshovel in action.
