Happy New Year - 2010

Well, it is high time that my unplanned and extended absence from my blog end. What better time to get back in gear but a new year. I have been plugging away on projects even though I haven't updated the blog. I will get caught up on pictures over the next month.
So here is what I do have for recent updates. First, I have used the holiday break to clean and re-organized my stash. Here is my closet now. I didn't take a before picture, but this is much nicer...trust me.

Now that my stash is in order I can work on finishing projects that are in the works. I am also starting a new project. The Quilt Show offers a block of the month project to its members each year. This year there are two free BOM projects, one pieced and one applique. While I love both of them, I am going to make the pieced quilt called Star Crazy. I have seen this mentioned on some other blogs today too! Cactus Needle and Canton Village Quilt Works both have great posts about the BOM if you are curious to see more. I was able to get some time today to sew. Oh right, that is because we have gotten 30 inches of snow in the last 24 hours!!!

So what does our yard look like with the greatest single snow fall on record? That is saying something considering we live in Northern Vermont. This was first thing this morning.

And this was at about 4 pm. Yes, it is STILL snowing.

Quite a birthday present for me. Oh, really mother nature, you shouldn't have!

Well that is it for now. It is nice to be back.

Yikes, 30 inches of snow!! Thank goodness it missed CT! I am so glad that you are going to be doing this quilt too. It will be fun and I am going to enjoy seeing your progress.
