February Update

I have a wall inside my foyer that I've been meaning to hang seasonal quilts for years, but I never quite got around to it. I bought the fabric for a Fall wall hanging, and a Christmas wallhanging. Well, a few weeks ago I saw this fabric for Valentines Day and even though its a cheater panel, just think its the cutest thing. So this time I finished it in time for the holiday! Isn't it cute?? Whoopie!!!!
Not much going on here in Wisconsin. Just snow, like the rest of the country. I heard on the news last night that every state in the contiguous US (the 48 states) got snow this week. I mean now really folks. I heard even Dallas and northern FL got snow. Here in Wisconsin we got about 12 inches and the schools were closed on Tuesday. I snow blowed about 5 times this week. But today is clear and sunny (okay, its only 19 degrees) and looks like it will be a beautiful day.
I'm working on the borders for my Carolina Christmas wall hanging (see previous post). I got the first border on and am trying to decide how wide to make the next border. That matters, because I'm planning to put a star block in each of the corners.
But right now I'm off to go buy 2 new tires for my car. I've had to stop for air every day this week since the big snow fall and I don't want to get stranded somewhere.
Have a great weekend!
