We Lucked Out!

We sure did luck out around here with this storm....we didn't lose power! It is absolutely frigid out and the snow (not ice) we got yesterday won't be melting for a couple of days at least. Fortunately, it didn't stick to the trees and power lines.

I was prepared for the worst but was quite happy to be able to use my sewing machine all day and half the night. I didn't turn on the TV or my computer and had a nice, quiet and very relaxing day. I needed that in every way.

All my little critters took naps and I did too!Here is my Princess with Zoe close by. They love their doggie sofa that my daughter gave them last year!
I woke up Blair when I took her picture.
I woke up Smudge too...look at those sweet pink pads on his paws :)

The camera didn't phase Wendy and Topaz, who were all curled up with each other on my bed.

I haven't taken pics of the snow outside but will when I go out to feed the geese. I didn't open the barn yesterday so the chickens will be wanting out today. There is so much icey snow though, that they won't be able to do much other than get some Vitamin D as it is quite sunny out.

Here's the quilt I started yesterday and should have the top completed today. I fell in love with this fabric collection and bought it as soon as it came out last summer. I'm so glad I did!

And my special project is coming along nicely. Once it's received by a special somebody, I'll be able to post pictures of it. I'm quite proud of this one.

It's time to let those chickens out so I need to get away from the computer. I hope you all have a nice day. Tomorrow I start the job searching again.

Nothing cuter than sleeping pups and kitties - especially when the kitties curl up together. Mine are not great at doing that, but I love it when they do! And that quilt fabric is GORGEOUS! I'm in awe of your beautiful work!

Beautiful quilt top!!! Beautiful fabric. It is a good thing I didn't see that fabric because I would have bought some too!!!! I am getting better from my fall last July finally!! Starting to think about getting back to the sewing room.
I LOVED the pictures of the dogs & cats!!! It would be nice if you had at least one pic of your animals each time you blog. Love the animals, love fabric!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So glad you had a great Saturday!!!!!!
Hugs and kisses for the animals, Fern
