Snowy Saturday Morning

It is Saturday Sharing Day over at Pigtales and Quilts  http://www.pigtalesandquilts.com/ --wander over see what Thearica has been up to, and what others are doing.  Wonderful way to get some fabulous inspiration!

Photobucket

We woke up to this:

Sorry about picture I took it through a window.

This meant that DH had to get up, go plow, and salt the elderly aunt and uncle's drive, and porch next door.

What did I do this morning?  I made my beautiful little sister a gift for her Birthday which was a couple of days ago. 
http://www.noodle-head.com has a wonderful tutorial on how to make these bags, and she has multiple sizes too!  Search for the:  open wide zippered pouch:  DIY Tutorial

Then I placed some of my favorite quilting tools inside that I had purchased her.  Unfortunately it is too late to go to the post office so it will not be sent until Monday.

What am I going to do for the rest of my Saturday?

I have a country charmer block to make
jewel box block
Quilty Barn along block to make

The above are my weekly goals which I have left.  I did finish two Farmer's Wife Blocks earlier:


And my big finish was my picnic quilt that is an ancient UFO! 


Then there is:
 the Hugs and Kisses QAL from Christa Quilts that I am working on
The Quiltmaker Magazine Lazy Sunday Mystery
City Streets Mystery from Quilter's Club of America

Final border for my Ginger Rose.

I really wanted to get my Easy Street sandwiched, but the quilting gods are working against me.  Last night while DH and I were in Joann's to pick up fabric for the City Streets Mystery, a zipper and thread I looked for a King sized bat of Warm and White.  There were none, not even any rolls.  I can order it on line, but I can't use my 40% off coupon and free shipping doesn't really compute.  Savings of over $21 with a coupon of $12 for free shipping.  OK enough of my rant.

It is National Quilting Day today!  Don't forget to check out Pigtales and Quilts for Saturday Sharing Day, and, do something quilty!

I just love how you always start your post out with an awesome shout out for the linky party. :)

I want to make one of those zippered pouches! I was off to the post office with orders from my website this morning but an unexpected visitor met me on the front steps as I opened the door to leave.... so I didn't make it either. There is always Monday. :)
