snowflakes?!? seriously?!?

it's my own doggone fault ... i just HAD to ask...
Auntia, what do you think of this fabric for your outer border?
MORE plaid and snowflakes - what's not to like?!?
ooooo!!!! i LOVE it!!!!

'kay ... so what would you want in the corners cuz we all know i am NOT up to matching plaids in mitered corners?

do you really have to ask?!? i want SNOWFLAKES!!!

urk!!! no, seriously - do you want some more snowball blocks? or maybe some bow tie blocks? or how about dog bones* or water bowls*?!?

nope - i want snowflakes!!!

groan...
five hours and a LOT of bad words later...
MacDubh seems to approve
now i just have to make three more...
oh well, at least when they pile up i won't have to shovel them...

*dog bones and water bowls were EXCELLENT ideas, by the way!!! and bag pipes - oh my gosh - that would be awesome, huh?!? Amy, you get me into a lotta trouble!!! i have ordered the bag pipe pattern from Heleen Pinkster - but i am NOT gonna make it for anyone other than dianne!!!

Maybe you could compromise and put a snowflake in one corner, a dog bone in another, etc.......just sayin! Trying to save you some time.....and cuss words. You might need them!

The snowflake is spot on (can a Scotty be named Spot?)! The only one I knew in real life was named Major (and I had just finished reading Catch 22 - Major, Major, Major...) Your paper piecing skills are phenomenal. Can't wait to see what you do with the pipes.

Happy 2014!
