I live in Connecticut and we had (according to the news) 30" of snow. I love definitive snow. Snow that keeps you in the house for the day (or in this case two days) school is cancelled, there are no activities and we are alone, the four of us in the snow.

Here is what we woke up to yesterday. (A picture of the main road I live on.)

So with all of the extra time I had, I managed to download the pictures from my camera into the computer. Here are some of the things that I have completed in December.

A quilt for a family friend's first grandchild. I backed the quilt in flannel to give it some extra weight.

A Christmas gift for my sister. We said that we wouldn't buy anything for each other and I didn't. She had given me her stash of fabric (Kaffe Fasset Paisley) that she had picked up at a quilt show. Then she realized that quilting was not her thing and gave her fabric to me. I thought about what to do with it and decided to turn it into a semi-large throw for her to snuggle under. Find my inspiration here.

(You can see my crack team of helpers. Sorry for the bad picture, I finished the binding the day after Christmas an needed to take a picture so that I could deliver the finished gift!!!)

So glad you enjoyed your snow days! We stayed home all week and I just loved it. Also gave us a good excuse to make cookies and drink tea. Lovely quilt!
