I've been away from the blog because I don't have much quilting progress to report. Except that I'm still on Easy Street, have all my patches done and finished sewing all my "B" blocks together. I still have to make 7 "A" blocks, and 3 set-in triangles. Sigh... I'll get it done eventually. Right now I decided to take a short break.
This weekend while we had Winter Storm Nemo howling through dumping 15 inches of snow on us I finished basting my Baby Boy Blue quilt tops. Yes, both of them! I only have phone pictures, but they'll have to do for now. By the time I was finished I ran out of safety pins. I'm not gonna say I had just enough because I could've used a few more for safety, but it's alright.
While I was basting the boyz were hanging out on the futon next to me. Guess what were they doing...
As some of you know yesterday we went for a hike in the afternoon with a goal of taking some pictures of the sunset from the top of a hill that's about 3 miles from our house. It never occurred to me that the snow will be knee deep (we got 15 inches of it, hello?) and only had sweat pants and an ankle high pair of boots on with ankle socks. Clever, isn't it? By the time we got half way up the hill my ankle was frozen from all the snow and so was my shin. I just couldn't feel my legs! So we turned back and marched home defeated. I have to mention that it was almost 5:30 and we were late for the 5:23 sunset anyway. I saw no point of continuing.
We took the kitties outside this morning and have some pictures of them enjoying the snow too :)
Looking for trouble!
He's a nice size kitty and the snow is still above him
His Royalness is so serious!
Notice that he's sitting on TOP of the snow!
The 3 brothers from left to right: Grumpy, Gandalf, and Furry. They have the same mother as Sleepy.
Attention, the snowball is in the air! :)
In the afternoon we went out to the park to look around and decided to take the hike again with the modification of taking the car up to the park and just climb the hill which was about half a mile long. I was still sore from yesterday and was really glad Fiance decided to drive there this time. I was still having a hard time trying to balance to step into his footsteps to get the least amount of snow in my boots as possible. It was fascinating that no one, but us were there since last night.
The ducks were having a blast at the park:
Someone went cross-country skiing:
The view from top of the hill:
Cool ripples made by the wind:
Love the way the sky looks!
Now I think I'm done for the day :)
I'll be back with the questions answered part 2, but right now I can't even think straight.
'Til we blog again!
