Frozen in the Scrapatch

It is Scrappy Saturday on Sunday.

Linking  up with the happy and scrappy quilters at the ...


Yesterday I fussed with  This Block so much in the morning ...

that I did not start sewing my

until late in the day,

when the window by my machine had iced over.

It is still iced over.

It is even colder today and tonight.

The Scrapatch is feeling like an igloo.

I do not have cabin fever, though, cause I have my sewing machine to keep me busy.

My feet are like blocks of ice though because the floor in my sewing corner 
is one of the coldest spots in the house, despite being directly over the furnace,
because it has a bay wall that extends over the foundation with no insulation underneath.
When I get up and try to make my feet work, I am always saying
"Cold ... cold ... cold ... cold ..."  like Anna in Frozen.
My toes feel much better after changing into new socks I have warmed on the radiator.
Ahhhh ... that is better.

I have four February RSC Blocks done now though.

Makes me happy

... the blocks, warm socks and a chai latte,
and a dark chocolate raspberry filled heart my Valentine gave me ...

Mmmmmm ... bliss <3

Also linking up today with all the lovely scrappers

Quilting is more fun than Housework

Oh, Scrap!

'cause I love scrappy quilts!

Brr. It sounds so cold, but the blocks look beautiful.

You have made cheerful blocks which will warm the hearts of others. Happy Valentine's Day!

Cynthia Brunz Designs said...

Mmmm. Warmed socks! Thanks for sharing your lovely blocks with Oh Scrap! Stay warm!

I felt myself having a shiver as I read about the cold, I have my feet in a massive dog slipper to keep them warm along with thermal socks and ordinary slippers on the cold tiled floor but it is only just below freezing here.Good you can still stitch but your hands must be pretty cold too, hope it warms up soon.

We feel your shivers - it was minus 21 here yesterday and every window in the house was iced over. It's been a series of 3-quilt nights, one night I even had four piled up. Hope your room warms up soon!

Oh I feel the chill from here! No wait, its my studio. Just like yours mine is the coldest room in the house. It was at one time the garage. The genius that converted it to a room only put one furnace vent in a one car garage. This morning it's 54 degrees in there. If I could wear shoes to sew it would be so much nicer, but I can't seem to sew a stitch with shoes on my feet. I'm considering buying a heating pad to put under my foot pedal. Wonder if that's safe? Mr. Podunk has some heated socks here we're talking!

I know, it's so cold here, too! I'm making a postage stamp quilt, too. Mine is 2" squares and sewn into a 9 1/2" blocks. Mine will be long term and I have about 25 blocks done so far! Don't know how many I need yet. (Haven't gotten that far yet) haha

Jennie in GA said...

Congrats on your progress. Sound like a heating pad is in order for those tootsies!

Kathleen said...

It's so nice to be able to sew when there's nothing else that can be done in weather like that. And it sounds like you made a very cozy time of it. We aren't having ice problems here but the snow is falling steadily. Hubby had to snowblow twice this morning already. More to come. I'll be sewing after lunch!

Sounds like you need those socks that hunters use that have batteries on them that heat the socks up and keep your feet warm. Although one time my husband used hand warmers in his shoes. That helped his feet also.
