Warming the Cold Front
I took part in Beth's 'Neighborhood' block party. We sent one block for a block lotto and one block for a charity quilt.
I came home from the hospital and catching up on some e-mails - there was a lovely note from Beth that I had won one of the block groupings.
As you can see I have quite a lovely variety of houses in my neighborhood. Once I am a little more able, this will be a priority project. Since there are 9 blocks and I would like a nice couch throw - some sizing up, sashing, borders are going to be planned. Thank you to all who submitted blocks.
Since I only showed the tote of my 'something old' , I thought I should pull that project out so you could see - I actually have an old project. I taught the 5-minute block at one of last year's Quilt Guild meetings. We showed Suzanne McNeill's U-Tube demo
And then I demonstrated step by step for a little more visual understanding. So I had all those components and units in various steps. Time to put this puppy together. Besides, the fabric is too pretty to just sit in a tote.
And the day I fell, this box had arrived and I only had a quick lookie thru it. This was a surprise from my dear friend Tonya @ Hillbilly Quilt Shop. Filled with Thimbleberry fabrics and buttons, beads, notions. If I can ever get Moe from his new found bed, maybe I can go thru this again - to really pet this fabric. Oh, and him too.
At the end of six weeks I did spy
A dawning of light in the southern sky
Though it didn't last long
It started a song
As a blowing sound passed by
For its warming wave
Caused the artic to cave
And move out to the world around
As the north begins to warm
The cold fronts start to form
In a move to the south
From the foul bear's mouth
It's January's frontal storm
The arctic air glides
‘til the bear subsides
And moderation in temperatures abound
