Snow day

Looking out my kitchen window 



Well, we got about 5 inches of the white stuff and it cancelled my youngest son's college classes and freed me from my chauffeuring duties for the entire day - yippee! I've cross stitched a bit, and I've knit a little and I made another block for my latest Scrappy Trips quilt. And I've spent time leisurely reading blogs which had lead me to two interesting videos. First, click HERE to a link for a wonderful video about Kaffe Fassett from Creativebug. I adore his fabrics and I love that he appreciates the crafty as well as the arty forms of expression.

And then I was on Quilt Swissy's blog - you can get to it by clicking here - and she had a link to a video interview of Dominique Ehrmann by Bonnie McCafferry and her innovative quilts. The video is about 14 minutes long and it is fascinating. You can see it HERE. I would love to see her quilts in person.

Also last Thursday Judy at Patchwork Times said that would be her last link up of  Show Us Your Socks till Fall since it was getting too warm in Texas to wear socks.  However, refer back to the picture at the top of this post.... I will still be wearing wool socks for a while and I plan to Show My Socks until it is warm enough for sandals... probably in June. LOL! I hope that others will continue to show their socks too.

Now back to enjoying my snow day... the sewing machine is calling my name!
Happy stitching-

  1. Sounds like a great way to spend a snow day! I've never had a snow day in my life but once when I was a kid school was canceled for RAIN. (Mind you, this is SoCalif where that is a precious and seldom seen commodity :)

    So I'll enjoy your socks for a bit longer--no problem!

  4. I wish I had 9+ inches of snow here! I would be in heaven : ) I am amazed that you did 3 different crafty things in one day ... cross stitch, knitting, & quilting. If I'm cross stitching I feel I'm cheating on it if I give any time to knitting or quilting. I need professional help. Thank you for the link to Patchwork Times. I thoroughly enjoyed my visit & have put it in my bookmarks : )

  5. I agree - fascinating videos! I love hearing people's stories and hearing the passion for what they do! Thank you for sharing that. I have Kaffee's book, 'Simple Shapes, Spectacular Quilts', and I am really enjoying reading it - not to mention that it is feast for the eyes as well.
