Leo’s Mane Sew Along

Monday 6 December 2010

Design Wall Monday Dec 6

 Today is an excellent day to stay inside and sew. We are getting slammed with snow. Schools have been closed, the roads are a mess, and the snow continues to fall. So far, according to the Weather Network, we've had between 30 to 40 centimetres, which translates over to 12 to 16 inches of snow since yesterday. And, it's forecasted to continue like this for all of today, tonight, and into tomorrow. It's all coming in off Lake Huron, like an arrow, pointed straight at us. It's a good thing I've got lots I want to do, and no place I need to go. My poor husband, though, had to go out in it this morning to go to work. I can only begin to imagine the number of calls the hospital got from people not able to get in to work (he and I work at the same hospital). They called this morning wanting to know I could come in this afternoon. I very politely declined. If this snow keeps up, the people working this afternoon won't be able to get home. My Son and Daughter-in-love, who live in Collingwood, have at least twice as much as we do. It a ski place, so that community will be glad of the snow So, I've spent my morning, and early afternoon working on my 100 block challenge
 blocks, pictured here, at the side, along with a picture of all 8 blocks done so far. And now, since there is no place else to go, I'm heading back upstairs to finish off my step 2 triangles, and start my step 3 string pieced foundation squares for the
RRCB mystery sponsored by Bonnie Hunter. It seems like there are a lot of us in blog land working on this mystery. It is going to be a lot of fun to see everyone's finished quilts, once the mystery is done.


  1. Nice blocks pictured! I absolutely love the star. I am not looking forward to getting so much snow, we recieved about 8-10 here but it was over seveal days and didn't interfere with life. Snuggle down and I hope that you can dig out soon!!!

  2. Are you following Teajuana's progress doing the 100 blocks? I LOVE your bear and the red/orange flowers. I might just have to pick that magazine up :)

  3. Just heard from my daughter in London and she is a pharmacy owner, but had to get her children and come home. The pictures she sent are amazingly awful--backyard about 5 feet in places. Do stay in and sew and hope the power stays on Abolutely love your quilts; you are the first I read along with the "other" Kathy in Ontario.

  4. That bear is just the cutest! And I love the green in the star--might have to copy you. :)
    I hope you get to stay inside where it's nice and warm and sew and sew and sew.

  5. So glad to see that you put your snow day to good use!

  6. You are amazing! You got a lot done in just a few hours time. Looking good...

    I saw your snow photos and I don't want to play with that much snow. 4-5 inches and I'm in for the day.


I love reading all your comments, and am grateful for each one. I try very hard to answer them all, but lately I haven’t quite been able to answer all of them.
