They said it would....

  Snow!   It arrived early this morning....this is the first round, and tomorrow is the blaster.
  I prepared in every way, except for fabric dye.  Once again I put it off, did not order dye, and we get snow.  Instead I am at the Tiara.  Want to peek?













  I am starting at a corner and developing a winding, curling feather.
I was having so much fun, I hated to stop.  Yet, to preserve my back/shoulders I am making myself stop after about 12 inches or 20 minutes at a time.











    I am making these very free form because I am not good at the "follow the line" type of feathers.  I am sort of working in sections, rather than a continuous feather  all around the border.  When I run off the edge, I will just start another one.

 








  And just in case we lose power....I am prepared with fabric and rotary cutter to keep me occupied.

   Happy stitching.

  1. Looks great so far! Enjoy! And way to be smart with the back-up no-electricity plan.
    We got about 12" last week, then got another 6" a couple days ago. Still very cold and beautifully white here but the temps are supposed to climb to 60 by Sunday. :o(

  2. What a beautiful winter scene you have to look out on. Your feathers are fantastic & I'm glad you are prepared in case of loss of power. It's cold here (40 deg.) but no signs of snow. Stay warm!

  5. The snow and the quilt are beautiful! The feathers look amazing and I like the way you're doing them instead of continuous. That front is supposed to come through here tomorrow.

  7. I'm sitting on an overly cooled train travelling home (a nine hour trip) but that photo really makes me feel cold!

    Love your feathers!
