Snow Stitching

We spent our Valentines Day bundled up in sweaters with our thickest socks on watching it snow. It was a good day to just hang out in the sewing room.  Work is virtual today, so though I won't get any additional stitching time, at least I don't have to layer up and trudge through the cold. 

I didn't get as much stitching time this weekend as usual.  I spent most of Saturday in Tulsa with the Scientist in Training.  We were supposed to have a girls weekend with my mother, but the forecasted snow pretty much nixed that. Thankfully the roads were clear and it was sunny, but cold.  We were able to sneak in an early lunch with just a bit of necessity shopping before we each had to head home. It was nice to just hang out together for the afternoon.  What sewing time I got this weekend was spent on my one monthly goal. 

Grassy Greek, the 2020 Bonnie Hunter Mystery Quilt


The goal is to get Grassy Creek assembled into a quilt top. By the time I stopped last night all the blocks, all the sashing pieces and all the border subunits are pieced.  The top and bottom rows of sashing and blocks have been sewn together.  I'm happy with how it's coming together. If I can stay focused, meeting my OMG shouldn't be too hard.  There's still half the month left. 

That's pretty much all I have to show for the week.  Linking up with the weekly show and tell posts:  Monday Making and Monday Design Wall.

Your Grassy Creek is so much calmer to look at then some of the others I've seen. I love it made with consistent fabrics throughout. Beautiful.

You'll have Grassy Creek assembled before the grass greens up. Glad you had a nice visit with your daughter. Stay warm!

You are making great progress on Grassy Creek. So you are one of those positive people who say the month is half full. I've been feeling anxious about getting projects finished because the month is half done. lol

Grassy Creek is looking wonderful. Love your colors! We spent both Saturday and Sunday afternoons bundled up and watching college basketball online. Our SDSU Jackrabbits were at Oral Roberts, and they kept talking about the travel difficulties they had even getting there due to that wintery weather.

It's currently -20 here in SD at 8:00 am. But the good news is it will gradually warm up this week to more normal winter temps.

What a nice idea to have a girls day, just sorry one of the "girls" couldn't make it. You are making good progress on Grassy Creek. Can you use your commute time to sew?

Sounds nice hanging out with the SIT, cold or not. Your quilt has gotten big since you showed it last time. It’s going to be very pretty.

The top looks fantastic!! I’m suffering thru sunshine here in AZ. But you really didn’t want to know that. I’ve had my share of cold, snow and ice though before I retired.
