We've had a light covering of snow here in Oklahoma, just enough to keep hubby home from work, but not enough to look anywhere near what I would call pretty.
Snow Days is the name I've given my Four Seasons Winter swap quilt. I hope to get it into the post all the way over to ---- tomorrow. When I discovered who my swap partner was I thought to myself, oh my, how can I ever do anything anywhere as good as this lady does. Then I remembered the post I did last year on comparisons. So I decided to make something with the gifts and talents that God has blessed me with. Just in case you haven't already realized it yet, I just adore the snow. I suppose that's what you get when you've lived nearly all your life in "The Sunburnt Country" and have been deprived of such beauty. So I wanted the quilt to depict what winter is to me, or what I'd like it to be, and no that's not a caricature of me or my hubby. I love the border fabric in this one, reminds me of a lightening storm, and a closer view of some of the beading.
These gorgeous fabrics arrived in my letter box on Monday. I ordered these from Quilt Expressions to use in the swap that Bren and I are doing. I think I may just have to order some more of these. I mean I can't leave them sitting on a shelf in a dark store for the rest of their lives, now can I? Plus the service was excellent, delivery within two days...
I've been thinking a lot lately about ufo's and have decided to take on Darlene's way of thinking. Life's too short to be worried about whether a project is finished or not. That's not to say that I won't finish them, it just means I plan on getting up each day and enjoying my day. That may include finishing of a ufo or it may mean starting a brand new one..... but it means finding the joy in each and every day. If you haven't read her blog lately, pop over, it's sure to give you your daily dose of joy, and then some.
Happy Stitching and thanks for stopping by to visit.
