Snow DAY!!!!!!!!!!

Can you see a driveway in any of these photos? It is THERE, between the hill and the fence, that is why I am staying home from work today, no plow truck here yet, and I don't feel like trying to guess where the driveway is and the ditches aren't. Nice day to stay home and do a little stitching or cleaning or vegging on the couch with Dandy.  GUESS WHAT I WILL BE DOING?????

Been Quiet Lately

Not too much exciting going on around here, Well I guess I can't say that either. DD Kendra is engaged and the date is set for Memorial Day Weekend next year. We have been looking for dresses, Finally found "THE DRESS" Girls got bridesmaid dresses, etc. so that has been fun. I have been doing a little quilting and sewing, and gardening and canning etc. Life is GOOD. Fall is here (I always tell everyone I am here (Wisconsin) for those 3 weeks in Oct. and I guess they are here so I better enjoy them while I can.

Last night I got an early birthday present from Hubby, wish I had it in the house but not yet, still in the bed of his truck. He bought me a new to me Cedar Chest, I have never seen one like this before, it is more the size of a Night Stand and it has 2 false drawers in front and 1 real drawer (lined with cedar) on the bottom and the 2 false drawers are the cedar chest part. Also came with a piece of glass for the top so you can set things on top of it. LOVE IT, when we get it in the house I will post some pics of it.

I have gotten some new quilts, Toni at me this awesome crazy quilt. I LOVE IT, cozy and comfy.

And Elaine at sent me this box of WOOL to add to my stash. GREAT TO HAVE FRIENDS HEY!!!!!!!

those are my latest updates, nothing real exciting but some fun stuff.

Check out my New Purchase

I got this little honey off ebay for a steal of a deal, it is hand stitched but machine quilted and I LOVE IT, just my style, cottage and homey style. Nothing fancy just cute. It is going to be hanging on my quilt rack in my sewing room so I can play with it when ever I want. It smells and looks like it has never been used, it has a couple of spots along the border that need to be restitched but other than that, it is in great shape, think it is from the 1940's. Anyway, I am happy with it. :) And that is Dandy our Rat Terrier who thinks the chair and the quilt belong to her. :)

Finished Quilt

Got this finished and I LOVE IT, looks vintage, and comfy too. Not quilted to death, I personally don't like quilts when they are so quilted that they feel "Stiff" I like the soft snuggly feeling better. And this one definately fits that bill.

I am working on a Vintage Linen 9 Patch quilt, I am looking for some advice, To Sash or Not To Sash, that is the question. Here are some pics without any sashing, I just laid some blocks down in no particular order so don't pay any attention to that part, just what you think of the no sashing look. TOO BUSY or VINTAGE??????

Any opinions or ideas?

Here is the floss I got today to start my Wool Crazy Blocks, I have some crewel wool that I plan on intermingleing with this floss, I am still looking for some perle cotton to co ordinate too. I am getting impatient and want to get started but I want all my thread before I start. I said to someone today "Why can't I find what I want" and she said "Why can't you want what you find?" Great concept I guess.
