It has been the Blizzard of 2011 here in South Carolina. It began snowing Sunday night and we got nine inches according to the news! Yee Haw! I love me some snow. Hubs and I have not left the compound since going to church Sunday. Yesterday our son asked me if we have cabin fever. I said, "No, honey, we have lots of books and I have been sewing."....And a friend came over to play Scrabble yesterday :)
This morning Scout indicated maybe she was feeling feverish. She ripped open her football and pulled out all the stuffing. Not sure what she was thinking but she looked mighty pleased with herself :) She has missed our daily runs; but she has walked to Granny's house with us....hopping like a rabbit to avoid frostbite on her belly, LOL.
I managed to finish this table runner before Valentines. It was a lot of applique work but I love the way it turned out. Ethel made a run to Florence for me to buy the white background fabric for me and she donated the awesome gold. Most of the rest was remnants donated to me by Burney Byrd. I love making something that cost me little or nothing :)
Sunday I put my Nearly Insane quilt on my bed to see how much further I had to go. Answer: A LOT farther. I needed at least 25 or more blocks. I have now knocked out nine of those. I do love using scraps to turnout some interesting and unique blocks.
Have you been snowed in? What have you been doing?
