A Good Day to Stay In and Sew

Saturday Sampler Block 8

This is the block I sewed this morning.

Here it is with Block 1 of the series

I do have most of the blocks made now.

I missed two months when I went to visit my DD and family last year.

Catching up these blocks is one of my quilty goals.

I should have taken Block 8 to a monthly meeting where I would have received the next block kit.

It was just too cold for me to venture out.

The temperature felt like single digits at noon. 

Now at midnight it is -6 degrees F outside with a windchill of - 29 degrees F

(For my friends whose temperatures are in Celsius, that is -21 degrees C  with a wind chill to -33C)


And it is getting colder.

Good thing I got my quilts to keep me warm ... :)

These are darling blocks Pat. The colors are fun, going to be a great quilt. I hope you don't have to venture outside for anything in the next few days. Stay warm!

Thanks, ES! I appreciate you taking the time from your busy day to stop and leave a comment. You are a "no-reply blogger" so I am responding here and hope you stop back again. This is a skill builders monthly workshop and I did labor over those points. I also switched out two of the original fabrics in the block kit to get just the block I wanted. I am really happy with this block. Thanks for the kind words ... :) Pat

I'm so glad you stayed home on Saturday, Pat. It WAS toooooooo cold to go out! I'm so glad you're sewing more now. I love to see your color and fabric choices. Eager to see the finished products.

I'm like everyone else love the colors.
If it's that cold I would have stayed in too! Brrrr
