Luckily, I had Plan B - Snowmen in the Woods.
Look at those cute little snowman bodies, just waiting for their noses and eyes. I love the batik snowflake fabric and, even more, I love this Kona white solid. I bought about 7 or 8 different colours of this in a pre-Christmas nobody-else-will-buy-it-for-me binge (and I don't regret a single inch of it).
Of course, these snowmen were sewn after I had finished all my marking for the weekend. I've started going to a little bookstore/coffee shop around the corner. They open at 9:00 am on Sundays. Perfect! I don't have to drive there (or find parking), I get the marking done and out of the way, and I'm home by lunchtime with plenty of time to do other things... like
laundry and housework quilting.
Tomorrow after work, I'm hoping I have time to play for a bit and do some paper piecing on the little tree blocks in this quilt. I don't know why I put off making this for two years. I'm enjoying the process very much.
And soon, when the roads are plowed and the marking craziness has slowed down, I will take a trip to the fabric store to pick up some batting and backing fabric so I can finish the Green and White quilt. Until then, however, I've got lots of projects to keep me busy and content ☺
