Surviving SnOMG! 2010….

We weathered the storm safely and are now in the midst of the great dig out…..  Hubby is our with shovel in hand as I type and will hopefully be finished before the pre-Super Bowl dinner we are having at 3pm.  I want him to be able to sit back and relax and enjoy watching his Colts play in Miami!!

Here’s a couple pictures taken while the snow was falling….

And here’s some during the dig out…

002 003 I haven’t been sitting by idly…I’ve been working away in the studio.  I quilted the Imperfect Squares Baby Quilt, stitched out the label and attached the label and binding by machine.  I’ll finish the hand stitching during the big game tonight.  I also stitched out the last 12 embroidery blocks for Fresh Squeezed Graham Crackers.  This is what they look like before trimming the threads:

005 They will become the center of 12 more of these blocks:

009 I’ll be back with more pictures as I make more progress on my Bricks & Stepping Stones top. 

I hope everyone is safe and warm wherever they are!

I love those blocks with the embroidery center, I just got a Husqvarna Topaz and can't wait till I can do that(I know nothing about it yet!)! I made one Graham Cracker quilt in Nancy's class so this would be a perfect project for me
