A most uncommon event...
a snow day in East Texas
allowed for a major sew day!
I tried to clean house and other chores...
but then I looked out the window and saw this doe looking back, playing in the falling snow.
so I decided... school's out for the snow day...
why not take one for myself?
This is the view from my sewing room window.
I know for the East Coasters trapped beneath several feet of snow it is laughable.
But here in East Texas... it is very uncommon and everything has come to a sudden freeze.
Schools, business, mail delivery... all emergency shut down for safety on this snowy day.
We have no snow plows, or de-icers or street cleaners.
Most have minimal experience driving in snow or on ice.
What we do have, are very excited children acting out scenes from the movie Frozen...
and a Sew day for me :D
My modern quilting group challenged each other to a Valentine's project.
Tomorrow is our February scheduled gathering.
I had all but forgotten about it with all of my Quiltcon preparations.
Here it is:
Once I had a plan,
I started sorting some selvages to create a "color wheel"
Next, I drew an undefined outline for a "color wheel" with a heart in its center on scrap fabric.
Followed by sewing on fabric bits & selvages to create a color wheel type of background for a center heart.
It was mindless & stress releasing.
It was like creating a mosaic.
It headed for the "forgotten project pile" as I focused on Quiltcon preparations.
But I dug it out today
quilted & bound it:
My Selvaged Heart
And since it is still snowing...
maybe I'll go outside now... and play
