Icy December Start and Quilt Progress

Hello from the freezing Snoqualmie Valley. In the past few days we have experienced our first lower elevation dusting of snow. It is too cold. :) But no denying it is pretty.

Nim insists on his walks. Put his fancy jacket on and he is good to go!

I continue to sew when I can, but progress is slow. My final is December 16th and I can't wait to get that study time back.

Since I have laid out the first quilt top, all is right in Leela's world. She is unfazed when I chase her off. She knows my back has to turn to run the sewing machine.

I haven't done the borders yet on this first top, but you can get the idea. The photos make the red look a lot more pink.

Meanwhile, the blocks on the next quilt are in progress. As you can tell these fabric choices are actually all part of the same line.

Such cute animals.

I am looking forward to major work on this one, but for now, back to studying. I have to schedule exams through ProctorU and even if I wanted to forget about the final I get regular reminder e-mail about my upcoming exam appointment. Time to be adult about it.


  1. I love the whimsical animal prints. Leela just wants to make sure nothing is out of place and wants to hold it down for you. :-D

    1. It is a really pretty print. That was also my sister that found that fabric. :)
