My weekend

The snow has stopped but I’m still stuck here. My plow company thinks that they might be able to get to my driveway sometime tomorrow. I measured the snow in the front yard. It is 17 inches. That’s an insane amount for this area and especially insane since it all came in a few hours.

Here’s a look at the drift blocking the barn door. The wall is 12 feet high so the drift is about 6 feet.

Here is the start of my Dear Jane on Acid quilt. It is much brighter in real life.

    Your Jane blocks are beautiful – I love the bright colors. I’m making a Jane too – using my own colors – autumn and not civil war although I’m not sure there is a big difference between the two.
    I think that there is a time when things get old, but perserverence is important to get to the end of any quilt. I’m sure your friends will love their quilts again once they get through with them.

    Ooooh, I think your quilt is going to look SOOOO much cooler than anybody else’s Dear Jane quilt. What gets me is WHY do folks work on things like this when they don’t even like them!?!?! I mean, if you’re making it as a special gift to somebody else, I can kind of understand it, but making it for yourself??? Why spend so much energy & time making something you don’t even like?!?!? Even if it IS a challenge, chose something that at least you’ll feel like you learned something from, and somewhat enjoyed.

    Those “Dear Jane” quilts always strike me as too busy, with horribly clashing colors. Yours already looks better than a lot of others I’ve seen. Just more fun!

    That is a TON of snow! I hope that the snow plow company makes it out ASAP. I cannot belive how high that snow drift is! I will say that I like it when you are snowed in because you update your blog often.
