Snowed in

The snow started late Christmas day and by the time it was over on Sunday, we had about 5 inches in central NC.  That made for some fun sledding with the kids and a poor attempt at a snow man.

It also made for some great sewing time.  One of the things that came together quite quickly was a project I had planned to get to before the holidays but never had the time.  I do hope to quilt it this week and it will be ready to go for next year.    I used a panel of 12 days of Christmas by Kate Spain.   (If you like, you can probably get the panel at your favorite quilt store - perhaps even on sale!)

I also did some work on a Thimbleberries BOM from Fat Quarter Shop (photos later this week) where I need to make a sawtooth border that involves 196 1/2 square triangles.  Ugh.  Decided to make 1/4 of them each day so got one of the top borders done last night!

Happy Stitching!
