Cruel, Cruel Mother Nature

What a Difference a Day makes.

Today it is cold with a combo of snow and rain. It's foggy and just YUCK.

Oh, well, at least the good day was on the weekend and I can look at the fog through my nice clean picture window :)

I have been working one hour per day on my paper-pieced border. So far I have eight blocks done. I also discovered I made a huge error in my math calculations for the number of blocks I need. It's not 254 - it's only 128. That makes me so much happier! I have done 32 so far. I can do 4 a day if I work one hour. Of course, I am sure I won't do it every day...repetitive stuff begins to bore me after about a week.

I have also decided there will be nothing between the quilt and the border. I didn't realize the borders will make the quilt big enough (105" x 105"). It'a a good thing I threw it on the bed to check beforehand.

I am off now to start sewing...

Just as soon as I eat this delicious broccoli salad from Walmart's deli

I just LOVE this stuff--broccoli, sunflower seeds, raisins and a sweet mayo dressing--YUM!

Oh, by the way, if you want to make a cute little road sign like the one I made above go here:


  1. zoey, your quilt is coming along very nicely. Its beautiful.

  2. Winter just can't seem to take a hike this year! We had the 70s yesterday and it's dropping 20 degrees today or tomorrow.
    That is a gorgeous quilt-please tell me you enter your finishes in contests!
    Broccoli salad is really tasty. I don't know if I could eat it though without Beano. ; )
