I'm cozy in my recliner tonight, snuggling under my special quilt. I'm glad I'm not back east in the snow and hoping DD1 won't have too many problems dealing with it!  When I talked to her earlier she had gone to bed as the electricity was out.  Luckily she has some cozy quilts to snuggle in also.

My cozy quilt was made by my sister.  She and decided we would participate in a mystery project and make a quilt for each other.  It was a lot of fun!  I really love my quilt - she did part of the handquilting on it and sent it to me to finish.  So it has both of our stitches in it, which I really treasure.  It always makes me smile when I use it.

  Not too much quoting done this week, but I did finish a top for a sample for the LQS I work at.  It is batiks (sorry for the overly bright photo - I took this on a very cloudy day and my phone couldn't cope with the combination of bright batiks and grey sky)  It was a fun, quick project - the pattern is Blueberry Hill.  Very fast and easy to make.  Lots of fun!   

Tomorrow I think I will finish my cleaning of the sewing room and work on my Dear Jane.  Oh, and I have a big bunch of Selvage Bins to finish up, too!  I was using up some of my selvages I cut from the Reunion strips I made into this quilt:
I think they will be super cute!  I had a lot of fun making this quilt, I used my facebook page fans to bounce ideas off of, and it was almost like having sewing buddies right there in my room with me :)  I do love the internet! 
Stay warm, and have a good weekend!  If you haven't, go like my facebook page and join in my sewing this weekend - I would love to see you there!
