Stash Report #12 & A Surprise Visitor

This was the view from my front door this morning when I looked out.

Yesterday we were enjoying 60 degree weather and a light jacket.
Surprise, surprise.  There was about 4 to 5 inches when I took this picture.

It was so beautiful and quiet and reminded me of a Christmas card scene where a horse drawn sleigh is coming down the drive.

This was the perfect day to work on hand stitching the bindings for two QOV quilts.  Here is a picture of one of them.  The other one deserves it's own post later on in the week.

My stash report has not changed much since last week.  I did receive some fabric from a friend to be used for the charity pillowcases, but I didn't get them finished yet.

My numbers for the week:
Fabric Added - 4 yards 
Fabric Used -  1/2 yd for binding

Fabric Added YTD - 49.7
Fabric Used  YTD -  17.5
Net for 2013  -  32.2  in the red

I'll leave you with another shot of our beautiful snow -- this time from the back porch.  It's about 8 or 9 inches here, (I'm guessing).  Heard that we got 12 - 14 inches in our area.


  1. Oh wow!!! We never got a decent snow here in Nashville this year. A few light dustings that were gone by noon :( Thanks for sharing your winter wonderland with us!!!

  2. Really, the snow is beautiful. We don't get that in So. Louisiana. But I can live vicariously though y'all and not have to shovel it!

    Your QOV is really pretty. I love those colors together!

  3. I am envious of all of that snow. When spring does get around to making an appearance for y'all, it'll be beautiful with all of that moisture and hand stitching binding is the perfect way to spend a snowy day. What a lovely pattern on that quilt! It is sure to be a comfort to whomever is lucky enough to receive it!

  4. Finally! A decent snow. I've been waiting all year for this. Fourteen inches and it's half gone the next day. Not fair, but I enjoyed it while it was here and spent the day watching it from my sewing room. Your yard is the perfect setting for a snowy day. Just beautiful.

  5. Wonderful pictures--can you tell me the technique? No snow here. cold. dry. We are going to warm up for a few days--will hit 50F but then cooling again. I remember last year at this time I had the central air on.

    You said you were wanting to play in the dirt--the snow must have cured that itch for bit. I love all the batiks you're bought--you're right, its hard to find good batik backgrounds.

  6. What a beautiful snow! I am not jealous, though!
