Working on Wednesday

Okay, where has the week gone?  Wednesday, how did it get to be Wednesday? Between the holidays and the snow days I haven't had a routine week in over a month and it is getting to me. When my youngest son was little having a routine made his life and behavior better, as a way of dealing with his Aspergers. I thought it was just for his benefit to have the routine, but I found that I like it too....a lot!

I am so ready to get back into a routine so I can plan on time to sew, like I did today.

I'm enjoying making these pretty little tulips. Mine are going to be red, orange, pink and yellow dotty beauties...with a preponderance of yellow ones.

I started with Lori Holt's pattern in her Quilty Fun book - and I'm making the Tulip Patch quilt - you can see it here. Now I've modified my tulips a bit, less connector corners so they are a bit more boxy..kinda like me..LOL! I want this to fit on my double bed so I am making it bigger than the pattern and right now I'm not sure how many tulips I'm going to need or how many rectangles for the sashing, so I'll just wing it for a bit.

Well I'm sure that the majority of you reading this are in the deep freeze again like me. We got more snow over the last couple of days and the temperature has gone down into the single digits and below and I am sooooooo ready for Spring. I heard a weather guy say today that if we get 6 more inches of snow before the end of March, it will be the snowiest winter on record here. If I was betting man I'd take that wager. They are predicting more snow this weekend - up to 3 inches and it isn't even February. Gotta go make more tulips and think Spring thoughts!

happy stitching-

  1. Your tulips look so cute! I can't believe how cold this winter has been. I can deal with the snow, but the bitter cold needs to go back where it came from! LOL

  2. The tulips are so cute. Just what you need with all the snow!! We are having a very dry Jan. It seems the high over us is pushing the Gulf Stream way north and then it is coming down from Canada on the rest of the country. Lots of people out here are complaining because we can't even get our ski places open it has been so dry.

  3. I love your dotty tulips They will make a wonderful quilt,

  4. So cute--love that the background is dotty too! The weather is all messed up. We skipped winter and are having high temps two days this month my city and a nearby one were listed as national extremes! Crazy.

  5. Wow! the snowiest! This weather is crazy. You tulips however are fabulous!

  6. Your dotty tulips are so cute! Stay warm Carol. I'm dealing with the opposite. Drought in CA but they blast the AC in my office so I am always freezing. I even have slippers for work. :)

  7. I love your bright tulips--great colors--
    I have always wanted to do a tulip quilt--but so far????
    keep warm--it is cold here today and they say cold for awhile yet????
    hugs, di and miss gracie

  8. I like your colorful tulips. They will put you in a good mood for sure despite all the rotten cold weather.
