I expected to have a snow day yesterday, so I was mentally preparing for a lazy day of sewing and watching the weather from the safe, warm confines of my sewing room. But, the 4-8 inches of white, fluffy snow the weather forecasters predicted for my area turned out to be about 1/2" which all fell before dawn. So, I have no excuse to sit inside and sew.
But, then I remembered that I'm retired and I don't need weather as an excuse. So, after making a couple of needed phone calls and doing one chore that was on my to-do list, I spend the most of the rest of the day sewing, ironing and sewing some more. I nearly finished all of the latest steps to Scrapitude.
I was looking at the pieces as I sewed them together thinking that I had lots of really unattractive fabrics in this quilt. I feared that all this work was going to make a really ugly quilt. But, each of the blocks are nice. The uglies just blend together. I'm looking forward to seeing this top completed.
