 The past few days have definitely been a good reason to stay in where it is warm and safe. We have gotten blasted with a nasty winter storm. Yesterday we got 4"- 6" of snow on top of what hasn't melted from previous storms. Today we are getting hit with sleet and freezing rain. Yuck to the max.

killer icicles on the neighbors house

my new workdesk :) the loveseat..
What I have been working on lately.
First, be sure to head over toWOYWW headquarters and have a peak at everyone's work spaces :) Make sure you have plenty of refreshments handy because it will take a bit to get through them all. Be sure to let the posters know you have been there and had a nosey. We all love the comments :)
Now onto the business at hand :) My newest project is fixing a quilt top that I have had for many moons. It has holes in it and well I love it so much I can't bear to throw it in the trash. It is made of beautiful and funky vintage fabrics. Back in December I saw  this post on Smile and Wave and it gave me the inspiration to fix my lovely quilt topper. I am hoping to have it done soon but well my hands get tired and I haven't been doing much with it steadily. And I also signed up for a Valentine swap on Hilltown Families that are due out by the 7th, so I will be working on those the next few days.
Still trying to workout on how to answer comments so you can all see them. Until I figure out how to respond individually I will just do a recap :)
From my 1-23-11 post- Miss Virginia, I am glad to be back in blogland. I didn't know how much I missed it till I started blogging again.As you can see above we have gotten lots and lots of snow. Luckily, I have plenty of projects, food and coffee to keep me busy and warm. One of these fridays I plan on joining in on your Rocking Your World Friday.
From last weeks WOYWW post-
Karen- not always a tidy desk, just on Wednesdays (insert sheepish grin, lol)!
Samantha- I need at least 2 pots of coffee to get through the whole list of fellow WOYWWers, but it is just so much fun.
Vickie- I need all the help I can get to gain peace in my little world. After I have read it, I will definitely post what I think about it.
Tracey- Those black bins are empty chocolate drink mix containers that will be turned into banks. I am big on upcycling items that would otherwise be put the trash. I will be sure to share a pic when they are done :)

A big thank you to all for stopping on by. Hope you all are having a wonderfully Blessed day :)

Hi Hun

That is some serious snow and some serious icicles - my son thought they were amazing - he seems fixated on them when we get them! It's lovely to see you blogging again, I must admit mine seems to be in fits and starts but I always manage my Rocking Your World post because it makes me happy! Hope you're having a beautiful and blessed day!

Oh the weather is grim - I hope your hands don't get affected by the cold.However long it takes, saving the quilt is a really great labour of love and it'll be so worthwhile!
It takes me more than coffee - I need 3 days to get round all the WOYWWers now!

Check out those icicles! I admire those of you who sew...I think I'm allergic to needle and thread!
