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!!!
