Well the weather has been crazy not
only here in Lancaster but across the country!
Lots and lots of snow and ice!
Which gave me time to finish the Coin Quilt
that I was working on in my previous post.
(For sale in my Etsy shop HERE)
The stitches are big stitch as I mentioned,I quilted
in straight rows. The threads are various colors
which match the fabric.
I enjoy making coin quilts as it's a way of showcasing
After it is washed you can see the little puffs
which I like to do in children's quilts. I feel
that they should be cuddly for them not too
flat with a lot of quilting.
It's a small crib quilt which measures 33 1/2"
by 37 1/2".
The back is a pretty pink floral.
I'm happy that another WIP quilt top is finished!
Now to pick the next one which will also probably
be hand quilted.
The weather forecast is saying - what else - more
The other day we had snow and ice which resulted
in many, many of my tree limbs cracking and falling.
I am happy that it missed my windows but so
sad because it broke my rose trellis!
Too much snow and ice for the poor trees
What a mess! I'm so happy that my swing
was not broken!
All the way down to the little creek tree limbs
everywhere. Way in the back are branches
of my neighbor's Willow tree which was so
beautiful. I cannot even bear to go down there
and look. All these fallen limbs caused power
outages all over and we lost power for one day.
Some people still don't have any.
I'm still feeding the birds which gives me so
much joy! They are so much fun to watch.
A Bluejay with attitude
This is one of my favorite birds! She's a small
Red bellied woodpecker. I took this before the
storm. I'm shooting through my glass sliding
doors. Sometimes the photo comes out good
These birds light up the dreary winter months.
Stay warm and Happy Quilting!
