Snowed In and Making

We are still snowed in here in Portland. Schools will be closed again tomorrow. We ventured down the hill to the grocery store this afternoon. The streets are all packed snow. By Monday, we are supposed to finally get above freezing with rain and it will soon disappear. Today the sun came out and it was beautiful to see the trees and buildings shrouded in snow.

I am so glad that I have lots of projects to work on. I have two sides of one of my oven mitts ready to stitch together.

I did free motion quilting first and what a mess. I ripped it all out and did some more sensible straight line quilting.

I have both trees finished for my silk stitch along with Laura Wasalowski. And I have been working on two more pink pussy hats. The top embroidery is my practice piece and the other one, I try to remedy the mistakes I had in the first.

Thanks for stopping by!!

    Geri -I have been watching you make these mitts — they are so cute!! But where do you find heat-proof batting? i tried making potholders once and regular batting didn’t keep the heat away.
