I'm Glad I'm Not a Tree
Kansas City was socked again this weekend with six inches of snow. The trees look beautiful but they must be cold!!! I am glad I can be inside and enjoy their beauty in front of a warm fireplace. I have gotten in a bit more sewing. All my Birds of a Feather blocks are back up on the design wall. As soon as I finish embroidering a few more birdy legs, I'll snap a photo. I am so not looking forward to sewing these blocks together as it will involve some dreaded set-in seams. No more "mystery quilts" for me LOL. I like to know what I am getting into! I am also ready to sew the rows of the strippy snowball quilt together. As I was working on joining blocks into rows, it hit me! This quilt is a ringer for Hawaii! The turquoisy teals are reminiscent of the beautiful ocean waters and the black borders look much like the black sand beaches. Even though Hawaii doesn't have "snowballs", I think I will name it something Hawaiian-ish. The son who will receive it absolutely LOVES Hawaii so I think that will work.
