Quilt Clock

When my friend came over for our sewing day she brought me a Christmas gift. When I opened the box, I was delighted to see this awesome clock. After she left, I immediately hung it in my studio.  It looks great! It certainly is the perfect clock for a quilter.

Our sewing day was a lot of fun. We kept my embroidery machine going on the counter while we were sewing with our machines at the table.  We both worked on making 6½ blocks out of selvages to create new quilt tops.  We embroidered, we sewed, we talked, we laughed, we told stories and vowed to have sewing days more frequently during 2014!

I get to have a little bonus quilting time this week!  Today and tomorrow are both "snow days" since we are having such horrible weather.  We got a ton of snow and the temperature was -18°F today.  With the wind blowing harshly we can't keep up with the drifting and many roads are closed.  It is supposed to reach -2ºF tomorrow (ooohh, heat wave!) and hopefully the wind will calm down so the roads and driveways can be, and stay, cleared.  Since I can't get out to go anywhere, our Christmas Tree is down and all decorations are put away.....I can't think of a better way to spend my time than quilting.

My mother tried to teach me that every cloud has a silver lining.  I can't help it that my silver lining often takes the form of quilting!!!

Stay warm.

Happy Quilting,
Laurel
