It's been ridiculously cold and windy and snowy here this winter and I'm even less motivated that usual to spend time in my upstairs, south-facing sewing room. It's much colder up there than curled up under a quilt with cats to keep me warm on the couch downstairs!
But after my Saturday sewing day with my guild last weekend proved productive, but ended early, I decided to set up my sewing machine on the dining room table. Not only is that downstairs, but it's also a more interior portion of the house, so much warmer. We don't eat there often and the kitties thought this a wonderful change. (Not that they pester me any less when I sew upstairs...) I've been good about only leaving my machine on the table when I'm done - otherwise the hubby might get a little cranky!
I had cut the remaining 8 blocks for the wrench quilt and decided to keep going...
I told myself I should take some photos as I sewed, but I never did...
But Wednesday night I got the top together!
I thought about quilting it today, but last night the wind was blowing at about 40mph and though the actual temperature was 13F, the windchill made it about -25F. And then the power went out. For only about 10 minutes this time, but it had been one of those days where that was just the last straw. So this morning I got up and decided I'd just chill out. The baby isn't due until April, and this top is done far ahead of my usual schedule, so I've got plenty of time!
Today I am going to put together a flyer for my guild's quilt show coming up in March (apparently my ability to use the computer got me nominated for that job...) and then work on a quilt for my niece. I'll do my best to get photos to share soon.
In the meantime, stay warm! I don't know about the weather where you are, but I think we're looking at single digit temperatures for at least the next 5 days. So long as the wind doesn't kick up, the furnace can keep up with the cold, but last night it was COLD in my house! Spring cannot get here fast enough!
