Blizzard conditions were forecast for this morning and at 6am it was a disappointing sight as although there had been high winds overnight, there was a distinct lack of snow. Not long after the schools decided they weren't going to open and by 7 am we did have snow here. Lizzie went out to see whether she would walk into town for her Project Trident work placement but came back and decided it wasn't worth risking slipping.
Yesterday Nick reinstalled my design wall as a late Valentine present. I've got my Mother's Day present too but he won't find out about that until the credit card statement arrives. :) Here is the finished scrappy trip around the world for the Chez Soi challenge. I'd like to get it quilted and bound this week, but today I have Esietddfod certificates to check and sort as well as quilting Anne's quilt on my long arm.
In the UK yesterday was Mother's Day so I installed myself in the lounge and apart from moving my stuff from one side of my craft room to the other so Nick could get to the wall, I stitched the frames for the Spring Sampler from The Frosted Pumpkin. This is a particularly rubbish photo as the linen is actually pale lilac not grey. I'm pleased with how this looks as this is one of the remnants of linen that I bought at denman and it only cost me £2. The patterns for each block will be released once a week for five weeks in April, making a total of 25 little spring vignette's which include cupcakes and umbrellas. So far I've completed six out of the 25 frames.
