Today I got to “work from home” because last night it snowed 12.5 inches in Indianapolis. I started out the morning trying to dig out my car but gave up and called my boss. She said to stay home, and I was more than happy to do that. I sat around most of the morning working remotely, but it didn’t seem there was a lot going on so I started working on my Ohio Sky brick path quilt.
I got all of the rows done! I really felt revitalized and happy today. A snow day does a body good. I decided to just use some unbleached muslin I had in my stash to make the extra blocks I needed. I ended up only needing 6 extra blocks so I guess I miscounted before but still - I shouldnt have needed any. I’m also really happy that I was finally able to take a photo in natural sunlight so you can really see how pretty the fabrics are. They really are my favorite colors and I cannot wait to get this thing done!
I did get about 3 of these rows sewed together. I may do more later, or I might wait until the weekend. I’ve got some other things I need to do around the house today now that I have time. I’ll see how it goes.
Also tomorrow, I am so excited to share with you the awesome banner and avatar my friend Christine made for my etsy shop! Snow day was nice and all, but really it was seeing what an amazing job she did for me that really got my creativity flowing again. Thank you Christine! You are truly amazing.
