I Love Snow Days....

The weather report called for "flurries" today, but we have about 3 inches on the ground. It has continued to snow most of the day. What a wonderful day to stay inside and look out at the beauty! I took "the girls" out for a walk this morning....my, how they love the snow. They romped with such utter abandon...this is the weather they both were meant for. Maddie came back in the house carrying golf-ball sized snowballs on her leg feathers and sacked out for the rest of the afternoon. I got lots of sewing done....YAY!!! The chicken quilt is finished and I made a few kitchen towels. This evening I will start another project, too. After all, there is only a month left until Christmas....yikes!I had fun quilting this piece and got a bit creative. I sewed the word "Egg", in cursive, over and over in the red striped border. In the black, chicken wire border I sewed the word "Chicken" several times.

You just amaze me with your talents....I am also envyous(in a good way)...I want to be snuggled on the sofa in a little cottage, with my fur babies, and a needle work project in my lap. Oh wait, I have the furbabies, & projects,,, even the weather, just haven't got the time(yet) to work on my gazillion projects, but soon as the snow really hits,,,you can find me in my craft room stitchen & relaxing.
Your Hen Quilt turned out so very cute. And, so clever to stitch "chickens" into your quilt.
Hugz to you & "the girls"...

Oh, that chook quilt looks great!

I've been searching for the Egg fabric everywhere in Sydney Australia with no luck. So any chance you'd know where I could get some in the States?

Thanks - enjoyed looking at your works! Fab!

Cheers!
