take on a very snowy appearance
here in Colorado.
2 feet of snow outside my door.
Spring time snow can be different than
very wet and very heavy.
It always looks beautiful outside
a landscape of white,
but hard on the trees.
Then reality sets in and it's
time to start digging out.
Two days to uncover the driveway, even with a
snow blower, which was not very happy to be working so hard.
Stepping out the side door, it took me 5 passes with
the shovel to get down to the driveway.
It was that deep and heavy.
The snow was past my knees.
The piles got pretty high, over 5 feet. We ran out of
places to put the snow!
You can see we're a hearty bunch here,
34 degrees and we were shedding our coats.
The sun has been out for the past few days and
it's beginning to melt. We have desperately needed the moisture
this snow has brought, remembering the fires we had last summer.
But while the wind was howling and the snow was blowing
I concentrated on finishing up my next set of donation quilts.
When I was trying to decide what to do next,
a friend gave me several pieces of fabric
large enough for backings.
This time I chose a pattern based on
these two pieces.
I gathered pink and red fabrics
from the stash and used
Cluck, Cluck, Sew's free pattern
for making heart blocks in multiple sizes,
which you can find Here.
I made the blocks 6 inches finished and staggered the layout.
Super easy and fun to make.
41" x 53"
Both quilts with flange bindings.
Hopefully, it won't be long before I can give these,
plus the other quilt
I've already made, away.
For now though, I'm going
to be concentrating on a few of my own lingering projects.
Snow and hearts,
that's what the week has been like here.
I know underneath all that snow,
the grass is turning green and spring is on its way.
Until Next Time-
