mid January no-snow-blues

First, can you believe it's ALREADY mid January??
I've been busy, busy! A good kind of busy, though...
all the holiday decor is down and put away.
The weather is being weird here in central Ohio... 
lots of dreariness, but no snow.
Since there's no snow for real, 
I put up decorations that remind me that it is really Wintertime:
Snowy Days I made with wool on cotton, hand stitched & quilted 
(pattern by Heart to Hands)
And you know what that means when there's 
no snow predicted here for most of the month?
Means we'll probably have it later, into Spring.

Speaking of cleaning up and moving forward,
I have some finished quilt pictures to move out of my photo storage and share.
This is a quilt that I got to meander over for Colleen!
I quilted it mid-November, but she was out of town for a while. Then, multiple times the icy weather conspired against us meeting up.  Anyway, she has it now, so I can share it here!
Lovely Wm. Morris fabrics! 
There's more to share in the finished quilt department, 
but I'll just finish with this for today:
I've begun (again 🤣) organizing the sewing room space, 
and cutting scraps at the same time:
More on that, later!
Happy mid-January, 2017!!


  1. I think we must be getting your snow. We've had over 120% of our annual snowfall. I'm not complaining because we need the water. I hope you get some soon. Winter needs to be white not brown. . .

  2. I like the Snowy Days piece. Perfect for January.

  3. we're low on snow here too! I have a bit but it is supposed to rain today.
    Love your wintery and snowy decorations.


Thank you so much for taking the time to visit!
