Snow Days

Yesterday we had a snow day (8") so I stayed in and sewed. It was fun to have lots of projects to choose from. I got the homespun Bear Paw top finished and wanted to try photographing it today in the snow.

So first thing in the morning I headed out in pajamas, boots, quilt and camera. I wanted to get the picture before the snow started to melt from the warmth of the sun.



Next time I will wait till the sun is higher to have less tree shadows. Next time could be Thursday as they are predicting another 6-8 inches tomorrow, followed by ICE! Yup I'll be staying home and hopefully finishing something.

In the meantime, this WIP/UFO top is done, done!!

Your photos are great! (And the quilt, too!) I'm a bit tired of the snow (another 6" last night), but it does make fun pictures, and it's a good excuse to stay in and sew.

Wow!! Congratulations on a beautiful finish. I love the reds, plaids, and bear claws. And just the image of staying in (except to take the picture in your PJ's) on a cold snowy day.

Very lovely way to use plaids. So many "manly" quilts are boring, but this is manly and interesting!

I always like a plaid quilt. Do you remember the name of the pattern?
