Chilly day here in PA

Oh my, it was cold today. Now, they are calling for snow,6-7 inches is what we could get. Oh well, it's January in PA.

I did get some sewing done today. All the blocks for the calender quilt are done, now all I have to do is put the blocks together. The blocks were fun to make and I love the colors. But, the fabric requirements were a bit short, so I had to piece some strips together to get all the squares I needed. The only person who will ever know is me and I figure if it was good enough to do 100 years ago, it is good enough for me to do now.

I also finished putting all 12 of the Dogwood blocks in place. The applique parts are now glued to the background and waiting to be appliqued down. I hope to get them done tomorrow, then start sashing them together.

This afternoon was an M&M afternoon. I was felling a bit down, turned to a little Choc. to help. I only ate a few, and then handed the bag off to the girls to finish.
Hope you all are safe and warm.
Hugs to everyone
