Cold weather ahead!

It is 49 degrees right now... and I have my window wide open! I looooooooooooooooove being cold. But all this coldness reminded me that I need to work on my husband's quilt and get it done in time for Christmas.

I got all the blocks put together - well, I'm one green block short. And have 3 extra blue ones... but that'd sure explain why I have a bunch of green HSTs leftover! :P The quilt should measure 60x84 inches when it's quilted.

I also need to hurry up and get it done so that way he won't be so cold at night. We don't turn on the heater, ever. If we want to warm up, we can take a shower; cook and hang around in the kitchen; and best of all, ironing fabric is a great way for me to warm up! :)

I figured it's time that I update my sidebar picture - no more bathing suits or fishing for me! ;)

I'm happily bundled up in a green sweater that my parents gave me for my birthday last year - it was hard to find weather cold enough to wear it here last year. Looks like this year is gonna be colder! :D Maybe we'll even get snow again... I can hope! ;)

Your quilt is looking good. If you lived here I doubt that you'd be wishing for snow or cold! We get way too much of it. Lol.

Your husbands quilt is turning out well, and I like your color choices.

Hey, you were right. I needed to post some pictures. So I did, just for you. And I shamelessly plugged your hubby's quilt!

Thanks for stopping by!

This quilt is coming together beautifully. Great pattern and colour choices for a man. And best of all, you'll get to snuggle under it too!!

Your husband's quilt is great too. You do a great job with fabric selection. I feel like I am saying "pretty quilt" in every blog post. I know I am behind in blog reading, but you are way ahead in working on so many pretty quilts!
