It's Snowing!


What a nice day in Northern Illinois today -- it started out nice -- then we got some rain and FINALLY the SNOW started!!  Maybe an inch or so -- but it will be gone the next few days --  but nice to see a nice white blanket on everything.

With it getting colder, I am getting more done.  This was  New Years Eve Mystery quilt I think from 2007 or 2009 -- finally got the binding over the weekend.  Not sure what I am doing eith it -- just glad another UFO is done.

This Saturday  my sister in law who is big into cards and scrapbooking had a card party for the girls in the family and we made 7 cards, here is what we did .  Such great ideas.  It was great fun to be with the girls in the family all day - we had a soup lunch and a creative afternoon.  What a great way to spend the day -- and especially right before the hectic holiday season starts.
  More cards we made
 The snowman one I think was my favorite.

 I also finished my red and white scarf I started last January.  It is super long and super wide, great to wrap around you and stay warm.  This will go perfectly with my red vest I wear in the winter.

My second quilty finish for the weekend was a Schnibbles from last year.  I used Amelia Fabric in it.  Just love the brightness -- great for spring -- Did I mention it just snowed today! LOL

So what have you been up to?

Happy Stitches
