Oh Mama It's Cold Outside

Cold temps keeping me inside and busy at the sewing machine (weather man says it feels like 24 degrees out even tho true temp is 35) .  That's cold for where I live !

 All the double 9-patch blocks are finished, ready to "top".  Still need to do some moving around and then to pick border fabric.
                                                  Right side up.
                                                    Upside down.

Kinda leaning towards a medium blue for borders.  Anything goes for the backing cuz I'm not picky about that.  Maybe a pieced back would be fun.  Fingers crossed about all the blocks being very close to 8 1/2 square.

Snow on the Huachucas, rain on flat lands. Bleak landscape when mesquites are leafless.

Beautiful sunset no matter how cold it gets. (That ever-loving telephone pole haunts images of Mustang Mountain).

Dear Gypsy is sleepy after yesterdays grooming session.  Front half is rough cut, still gotta clip her back half and then a bath.  
Poodle moms work is never done.


  1. Gypsy is ready for a snuggle and a nap :) Current temp here is 30F, feeling 19F, with light flurries. We had a some above freezing temps in the last week along with snow, but the winter temps are coming back. I could do without winter cold - brrrrrrrrrrrr! The older I get, the colder COLD feels!

  2. Good to see you back. I missed reading your blogs.

  3. Yay! It is so good to see you back making quilts. I like that One. There is just something about simple squares that makes me happy. Gypsy is so sweet, the picture of cuddly-ness! And yeah, it's cold here, too. I'm ready for Spring!

  4. Glad to see you all back online! Gypsy looks exhausted from the grooming. I used to take days to finish up all the Edward-Scissorhand stuff. LeeAnna
