snowed in ... not!

we were expecting 10 - 15 inches of snow on saturday ... i spent the last blizzard shoveling snow and surfing the Internet, and i didn't want to waste the jammie time again ... so we planned ahead. on friday, while Auntia was being beat up at the dentist's office, i stocked up on food at the grocery store ... then we made a mad dash to TQS for our BOM kits (it's against the rules to go early, but they took pity on us and let us do it anyway) and bought a few lavender fat quarters, stopped at the Thread Bear for some fairie frosts, and then headed for home. i put down some fertilizer (think green, green grass being nurtured under a white blanket of snow) before the wind started in ... i was supposed to be cleaning house on friday evening while Auntia got her weekly, gratuitous, choreographed violence fix, but i was too sad to do anything much after i heard about radman's passing ... so i wallowed in grief for the rest of the evening...
...on saturday morning, Auntia bordered her little (it isn't little, but it is little compared to the big quilt that she is making - this one is the leftovers) fern blocks and sewed them into a flimsy while i did some of the cleaning i was supposed to already have done......and then she laid out the blocks from Bonnie's Orange Crush Mystery and started putting them together ... this is how she left it last night (my orange crush blocks are languishing in their plastic tub, where they will remain till ... some other time)...
...and i made a little progress on Mr. Husker's birthday quilt ... mountains and a practice bull (i don't usually have to practice bull - ha!) that i have named Sampson ... he's gonna go live with the other orphan blocks because he has crooked, crooked ears ... i have plans to round up a herd today - the calves, cows, and a bull are cut and waiting ... but first i am going to put on some spaghetti sauce and finish up the cleaning ... by the way, the snow was one inch, not fifteen ... no shoveling for me today ... woo hoo!
