Snow Moon


With the wonderful ice storm and then the snow Storm Niko - we haven't seen the last of this phenom yet.  After all, a full moon (February's full moon is called the Snow Moon), lunar eclipse, and a comet all at once has to be an indicator.  It is snowing again and will be for the next 3 days - good thing I had no plans other than staying to home!



I got a little more block play in before I have to shut down the machine and concentrate on a commission (cross stitch).  Aqua is not a color found too easily in my scrap bins, but I found enough to complete my 4 piggy quota for the month for my RSC17 blocks.


Again, very little aqua to feed into these blocks.  BUT its is about trying to use up scraps and I had added a lot of small green scraps into my barrel system from all of January's green projects.  These blocks can be made with any 'math' - but in case you are wondering I used 1.5" squares for my 4-patches and 3'5" squares (cut once on the diagonal) for the corners.  AND that size because those barrels are stuffed!


Then I realized I forgot to photo the blocks I was making with Moe's help the other day.  Puss in the Corner (purrfect for sewing with the furkid) with those bits.  I don't purposely cut 1.5" squares, I just hate to throw out and they can be worked into a cute block.

You all stay safe, stay warm, and keep on stitching,
Sewingly Yours,
Sharon

  2. On our TV tonight pics of the massive snow in New York, gale winds elsewhere, hundreds of flights cancelled, Hope you are all cosy and safe inside, with a furbaby or two for company. Aqua, I usually have blues, greens and teals, reds and yellows are always scarce in my stash.

  3. Adorable piggies. I like your puss in the corners. I think this would be a good block for my large container of scraps of 2" squares. Stay warm.

  5. I know the snow is a pain, but that picture is gorgeous and looks so peaceful. I'm loving the scrappy patch blocks, they're going to make a great quilt, so much color and texture.

  8. Amazing photo. I stepped outside to look at the moon last night, but didn't see anything as stunning as what you captured in your photo. I agree, bizarre weather. But looks like you are staying warm and enjoying some good quilting time. Love seeing what you are working on, and those piggies are a quack up.

  9. I was wondering what the term "snow moon" meant. We saw it. The clouds actually cleared off for the first time in weeks, and we saw the stars and the moon and also one planet shining very brightly. Couldn't decide if it was Venus or Jupiter.

  14. Love those piggies! 8)
    The snow missed us - we only got an inch or two. Fingers crossed that the next one misses, too... (And that it misses you, too!)

  18. Four lucky piglets dressed in the nicest color in the spectrum. Let them strut around and show off. Amazing crazy weather! Take care.
