Yet More Snow and Quilting Updates

You just know you are in for one of those days when it starts with this:


The snow continued to fall here last night.  The snow mixed with high winds (60 to 80 km/hr) resulted in white out conditions and a bit of a wild drive to work today. 


Barbecue season and meals in the backyard seem so far away.



This truck is not going anywhere soon.


On the quilting front, progress is being made on piecing the blocks for Got Stripes and on attaching the binding to Fire Escape.


I am currently working on row 7 of 11 on Got Stripes.  Rows 1 to 5 are completely joined together.  Row 6 blocks are joined to one another but row 6 is not yet joined to rows 1 to 5.  I have just started working on row 7 - only one star block assembled so far on that row.


The binding has been attached to Fire Escape.  When I can steal a few moments, I work on hand stitching the binding to the back of the quilt.

More snow coming down here today too - I'm pretty much ready for the rain to come back, but in the meantime I'll stay indoors, nice and warm, and have tea and toast and knit - just the thing for a cold wintery day.

Lovely quilts - wish I had some binding to stitch on - but guess I'd have to actually finish a quilt to have that.

Yikes! I can see how much is piled up on the picnic table and truck since Saturday's post.

Fire Escape stitching will warm you twice---hold the quilt and getting some finishing stitches in it. All adds up, right?

Good progress on your Got Stripes too. 2/3 to 3/4 done??
