So how's everybody doing with winter? I see that much of the country is struggling with snow. We had icky snowy sleety weather over the weekend, 4 more inches, and then another 10" of snow last night, bringing our total to well over 100" already this season. (That's almost 9 feet of snow!) It is so awesomely beautiful here! We enjoy sitting in the sunroom watching the birds at the feeders and waiting for the plows to come along the road. Dave, Jessica, and Frankie came up to do some snowboarding -- it's always nice to have them visit, but Frankie is sooooo exhausting. It would be good if he were either less hyper or more housebroken.

I haven't spent much time in my sewing room this past week -- my days are just full of everyday life. I did manage to make up this week's
Friday Block Party challenge:

And I've started working on some border blocks for my stars:

Meanwhile, I'm still plugging away at my B-a-D project. I am working several weeks ahead on it, and the block pile is growing! Looks like I'll will end up with close to 40 different color sets at the end of the year ... lots of donation quilts someday :)
