Already March


I've been really remiss and okay I'll say it lazy about posting anything the last several months. As you may have heard Idaho is having record snowfall this year. I've been told by those who have lived here a long time the last time they remember having a








large amount of snow was winter of 79/80. This is the start of our 8th year here. We had a few days this week above freezing and some rain and snow started to melt which is turning the hay field next to us into a lake. We had between 2 - 3 feet of snow. Hard to tell exactly with the drifting.





While we wait for spring I started knitting this sweater. It is a kit from either Mary Maxium or Annie's can't remember at the moment. So far an easy knit.


I also took advantage some sales and purchased a kit from Craftsy. It is a small quilt so far one block down and 8 more to go. The pieces are an odd size so I am having to cut them with a ruler and rotary cutter. If I do it again I'll use my Accuquilt dies and same time and wear and tear on my wrists. Wonderful and easy pattern to use up lots of scraps.


I've also made this quilt top using the Accuquilt GO Big die for Snail's Trail on my Accuquilt Studo Cutter. It was fast and easy and the top pieced really fast.

So I am going to try and do better at posting and staying in touch.

Talk to you soon.
