It's Snowing in April

That's right! The white, wet, fluffy flakes are falling from the sky tonight. I thought spring was here, but winter has come back for one more round! I love winter, but once spring has sprung, I'm ready for it to stay around.

I finished my HSTs for my Chiclets quilt last night. Next step will be to start working on the borders for the 16 patches. I didn't get any quilting time in today. I had to make a fitted cloth cover for the box we use to ship materials to and from conferences in the office. The box is 37 inches high, 43 inches long and 29 inches wide. It makes a great table, but needed a cover. So I volunteered to make one. Not as much fun as quilting, but it was sewing.

I will get in some good quilting time the next few days. DH is out of town until Friday which means light cooking in the evening (that equates to quilting time). This weekend is the Master Golf Tournament which means DH and I won't want to leave the house and that also means serious quilting time. That's good. I should be able to get my Chiclets quilt done. I have a block to make for my guild's 2007 raffle quilt and a row robin to complete for a friend.

I am so looking forward to DS moving out so I can create my quilting studio. I've read about so many people who have straightened up their studio, folded all their fabric according the Lois Hallock in her book, Creating Your Perfect Quilting Space. I have had the book since Christmas and about once every two weeks I read it one more time. I think I have it memorized by now! Soon, very soon, I'll get to renovate my new studio.

Paula, Lovely first quilt and dh is so nice to pose with it for the pic. Or doesn't he know he is now so famous on your blog. Welcome to the world of blogging! You will enjoy it. And a belated welcoe to the world of quilting. You have a true quilter's heart and a growing stash of UFO's and fabric. Congrats! THat will be most helpful in all kinds of ways as your quilting journey continues. I am on stashbusters with you on yahoogroups and look forward to reading more of your quilting adventures. Oh, you are a lucky duck to have a quilt shop only 10 miles from you! Start up that car and go there. There is nothing like seeing and feeling fabric in person. Shoot I've known people to come in on their lunch hour just to "smell" the fabric because their workday had been so stressful. Now off I go to get my handwork ready for work today. I am blessed to work at a place I can do handwork most of the day. My current project(s) can be seen at my blog debratsquilting also on ... a hand done quilt for my son's wedding and some cashmere clutches for the attendants. Glad the snow stayed so far north, oh right, it doesn't snow in central Florida now does it? stashbusting hugs, denise/deBRAT-jane
