In Layers


Boy we got cold Phil!!!  We went to a minus 44 one night  Miss Kitty was delighted when I added a couple more blankets to the layers on the bed.  We stayed warm, but my car froze up - for like 5 days.  With some thawing and a jump start - she's purring again.

Actually  our weather has warmed considerably so I can shed a layer or two, but I am using this February lull to create other layers.  I pulled six of my smallest quilt tops from 'that' tote.  I had just enough batting on the roll to be able to complete five though.  It will keep me busy while I order another batt roll.

I hate to say, there were 30 quilt tops layered in 'that' tote.  Well, I'll get a start - no a dent.  AND another tote I found four quilts - two that need their binding attached - they were in the binding drawer - and two that have the binding on but need hand stitching down.  Well, see how far I get during this short month.

Sewingly Yours,

That would be a lot of progress in one month!

Those kind of temps are insane. Layers and layers for sure. Glad the car revived and is purring. Looking foward to following your progress on all those treasures you found.

Wow! you have been so productive. Feb. is perfect for binding and quilting. Can't wait to see the finishes with this load.

Looks like you have lots to keep you busy (and warm).

Woah, that's some serious cold stuff. Glad you were able to stay warm and busy. Good luck with making a dent in the finished tops tubs.
