It's Snowing!! I Spy

The first two photos are some small quilts that are I Spy that I will take to Brazil with me. I try to sew them so that some of the blocks are upside down and the child will have to turn the quilt. These are 4x4 blocks so this is small. I think that I will back them with fleece but I want one of the ladies to embroider "Jesus Loves You" on the back. She has a machine to do that. I have one but I don't know how to use it. Just give me a straight stitch!!

I've been busy today and I guess I haven't looked outside and look what has showed up - SNOW!! I like to take photos of foot prints in the snow. More photos below

This is looking south out the front door on the porch. The snow is still coming down. More below!! This is looking straight out the front door and the building on the left is the church that I work at. Long commute? I love being so close and I now have a guy that cuts my hair, a dentist, restaurants (Dairy Queen and McDonald's) within walking distance. I don't use a full tank of gas in my van. I'm 4 blocks from downtown, two blocks from the library and Irwin Gardens. I bought a bike and need new tires. It was a used mountain bike and was such a good deal.

I wish I could show you what I've been working on but I can't as I think I want to enter it in a monthly contest on Stashbuilders when it's done. Lots of hand sewing.
We're in a Sewing Bee this week-end on Stashbuilders and I'm the SB Mama. I get to draw names for prizes. These sewing bees always seem to help me get more completed.
Hope everyone is having a good day!!!
