Sunny Thursday

Still out of touch with the world on my land line.   Technician discovered a faulty cable in a junction box several houses away from me.  As he is not able to change cables, my work order has been transferred to the cable division.   Should be repaired this a.m.......we shall see.

We had a dusting of snow overnight, the forecast called for a lot more.  The wind is starting to blow the new fall of snow around, so more drifts will start to form.  There was a beautiful sunrise this a.m.  blue skies and some clouds as I write, and it is cold. 

During the waiting yesterday p.m. I worked on the "girls" quilts and also took pics of the 120---4 1/2 inch blocks which will be in the quilt for my DD1.

Her choice of colour for her quilt was earth tones, lots of browns, beige, ivory and some white.  There is also a fabric in that pile which has a touch of green in it, however, not shown. 

The photo below, (a very poor one, sorry, memo to self, change date in camera),  is a picture of the quilt I am making for her.  Here it is shown scrappy with a lot of different coloured fabric, mine, of course, will be the earth tones.   Most of the fabric is cut for the "point units" and "center units", which will be started this afternoon.

Doing some errands again this a.m.  and also get something for my Valentine.  I already have an arrangement of beautiful flowers but was also told to get dressed up for Saturday....Ummm  got me wondering now.

Have a great day.

I really like the earth tone colors you're using in the quilt. It'll be beautiful when it's finished. Sounds like you found yourself a real sweet guy!

I hope your landline got fixed. Don't envy those guys working out in that cold today.
