In the winter we talk weather

Amazing to behold, snow in Seattle. Despite what many think, we do not get much (if any) snow here in the winter. And that is a very good thing because we are a city built on 7 hills and havoc rains (so to speak) when it snows. People don't know how to drive in it and there are hideous traffic snarls. This came mid-day Saturday and was about gone by Sunday morning. Phew!

Sewing projects in process, despite inclement weather include HST's for my White Chocolate quilt. I have completed 106 out of 194. And I have tried my hand at a needlepoint scissors case, likely to be a Christmas gift for a friend. For a first effort this isn't too bad. I used to do lots of cross stitch and still have floss and books on that. Perhaps one of these days I'll clean them all out.

Barb at *We* Quilt asked about the placemats. I would be happy to show you how to do them - they are quite simple really. However, I need a couple of days to get the fabric ready and photos taken - it's boring just to read words. So give me a few days to get organized and I will show you what to do. You will be really pleased at how quickly they come together. Thanks for asking, Barb.

Stay warm, stay dry. Life is good!

It's beautiful! Did you blow away in the wind? I hope not! I love the scissors case.
