Quilters Love Snowdays

There's nothing like a snowday to warm my quilter's heart.  I have barely stepped away from the machine today while my husband, poor guy, had to work from home.
Yes, this is enough snow to put us desert dwellers on standby.  It is supposed to get down to 2 degrees tonight.  Brrr!

Okay, this project that I am about to show is a secret-its a Christmas present- but it is just so darn cute, I have to give you a peek.  So, Mom, make sure Dad doesn't get anywhere near this blog!
I hate it when I have to use the flash cause the colors are all off but, there are more pictures below that show you the colors better.
My dad loves John Wayne and old westerns so this is going to be perfect for him!
This guy is my favorite!
I don't know, though, I like this one too.

I told my husband that I might like it too much to give away, even to my dad, and he told me I would just have to go visit it often.

It is going to be soooo cute when I get it quilted-just wait til you see the pantograph I am gonna use!

This is a quilt that my Mom made out of Block Lotto Blocks she won.  It is for her great nephew who just started at-you guessed it- Texas A & M.  I quilted it for her finally-it was the quilt that was on Lizzy for months.  Now she can finally get it bound and sent off.

In addition to all that, I also pulled a UFO out of the closet and am working on it for a Christmas present but no sneak peeks of it 'cause that person has been known to peek at my blog now and then.


  1. What a great quilt for your dad! Love the Longhorns!

  2. I feel like it's been forever since I've stopped in. No snow days for us yet, but with Christmas (a-hem...."winter") break coming up soon, I am confident I can keep smiling and plugging away until then :0)

    Way to use your snow day
