As of this date, January 29, 2010,
I, Debra, being of sound mind and body
(mind is questionable - as I have just finished an untold amount of half-square triangles;
and the body is always questionable)
would like to report that I have completed THE CHALLENGE!!!
OK, it's not quilted yet, but it is a finished quilt top. In my world, that counts!
It finished at 88 by 106 inches;
I really like it.
I may need to purchase new white sheets and some nice linen shams.
What is on the bed now is flannel in a very lovely print of moose, skis and pine trees in a very dingy tan and green and blue. NOT the right look for a very nice snowball quilt!
So, now I can go on vacation with my family!!!
It's time for our winter ski trip!!!
Well, they ski, I happily sew and cook.
So this is the start of my packing:
The important stuff- my slippers and some dark chocolate!
Then I gathered more stuff that's really important.
Yes, that's the Farmer's Wife book and some nicely folded fabrics I will be using. And now I can start this, as I have finished my snowball quilt challenge!!! Did I mention that I really like this snowball quilt???
Then I packed my sewing maching and all that paraphernalia.
After that, I went to the kitchen and grabbed a couple of recipes I want to try and packaged up some spices for those recipes and stuck in some snacks.
Then I gathered the stuff that daughter and s-i-l want us to take to them in Rhode Island (stuff that they couldn't fit in when they flew back after Christmas and a very large box of reference books that takes a crane to move and more shoes and boots than two people should need!)
But first, I will print off a few address and directions of quilt shops that might be on our way between Ohio and New Hampshire!
Now that that is packed I really should go and pack some clothes!
Again, my thanks to Nicole and Allyson for the challenge - all the organizing and pictures and especially since I heard there are going to be prizes!!! And, I don't know if I mentioned it or not, I really L O V E this snowball quilt!!!
