January 2011 Update

This is what I'm wishing to see
But this is what I'm seeing!!

                                         Peanut Butter doesn't mind the bad weather as he is warm in my bed!

                The week between Christmas and New Year's I did some work on the inside of my cabinets.
                This looks awful but it was just worn shelf paper.  I also rearranged my cabinets and does that feel

                                This is my new paper which is actually wallpaper that I purchased on clearance a few years ago.  It makes great shelf paper.
                                                  This is my block for the Tag Square Bee and she wanted all blue.

While I was off I went and purchased the cheapest flannel and used tacks to put it on a wall in the basement.  And then I had my own Design Wall!!  These are blocks from the 3x6 Bee on Flicker.  I love all of these blocks and this will soon become a quilt.  The blocks are 12.5 x 12.5 so this will be a good size since I plan on there being 6 rows across and 6 down.  We just started our new swap but there is one every quarter and you are welcome to sign up now for the next one.  http://www.flickr.com/groups/6x3bee/
There are so many talented people and there are some fantastic photos.  Take a look!!

Sign ups are still open until the 15th for the Siggy Swap on Flicker.  http://www.flickr.com/groups/1564600@N20/
Read the guidelines and see if this is something that you would like to join as we would love to have you.  Right now we have 25 people signed up so there is room for more!!
It has been snowing since 5am and is supposed to stop around 7pm.  Right now it's still coming down.  I stopped by the library on my way home from work and picked up some books and on quilt book to browse through.  The book is Dimensional Quilts by Phyllis Dobbs.  Here are a few photos from the book.  If I can remember I will let you know what I think when I go through it. 

It's snowing harder again so I'm going to stick my head in this book.  Thanks for stopping by and I hope to get back into blogging more.  Have a great day/evening!!
