Snowed In and Stitchin!
We are well and truly snowed in. It is now sleeting for good measure. If only I wasn't dealing with a geriatric cockapoo who had to do her business at 3 o'clock this morning. I ended up having to dash inside and upstairs to get my snow boots to rescue her as she kept going farther into the snow despite it being as tall as she is. She actually seemed a bit peeved when I picked her up out of the snow!
Awake and knowing my oldest son was probably out at work delivering The Washington Post there was no hope I was going back to sleep. I decided to enjoy the peace and quiet with a cup of tea. My son called at 7AM saying he had gotten his papers and started his route but got stuck on the first street. He dug himself out and went home to his apartment. I wish his customers knew he gave it his best effort.
This is what I'll be working on today. My tutorial on how to use Gyleen Fitzgerald's Pineapple Ruler is my most popular post. I decided it was time to get these blocks out and at least finish the top. Nancy, who teaches at Jinny Beyer Studio, just shared her completed scrappy pineapple quilt at our guild meeting. She used a Jinny Beyer border fabric to finish hers off and it looked great. Isn't imitation the sincerest form of flattery?
