After a winter of no snow we seem to be getting a storm to come through on a weekly basis. Today's storm gave me time to work on an old quilt. I started this quilt about 5 years ago but got bored with it . Recently I've had the urge to quilt again so I pulled this out. It's made from scraps and as many different fabrics as I had on hand that would go with the feel I wanted the quilt to have. All of the  fabrics are from the early 1990's when I was quilting a lot. I finished the top a few days ago and today I basted it together so it is ready to hand quilt. Hopefully it won't take me 5 years to quilt.

Yesterday we were supposed to have a blizzard. Well, we had wind, we had January like temperatures but no snow. Schools and many businesses closed in anticipation of the  big event so I cancelled all my errands and stayed home. Put on a pot of potato leek soup, stitched on a quilt that I started years ago and never finished and made this.
I think I'll put it in my etsy shop as over the next few months I will be transitioning my shop to include more items made with vintage linens. This little pin cushion is made with a vintage jello mold, old feedsack cloth and some vintage trim and thread.

Hopefully, this is the last of winterlike weather for us.

Spring doesn't seem to want to come to Colorado so I decided to make my own. These sure were fun to make on a cloudy cold day.
