The Weather Outside is Frightful . . .

Yes, with a low last night of 8 degrees and about 5 inches of snow. But look what I got finished. This is the main body of the Kentucky Log Cabin by Judy Martin.

Now on to the borders. Have to cut more strips of lights and darks to make the inside border. Then a whole lot of 2 in. squares in asst. darks for the outside.

Here's my view yesterday about midday while it was snowing. These are the two new houses that were built in my backyard a couple years ago. The one on the left is a nice log cabin BUT they put a red roof on it. Horrible. At least now the snow covers that part, for a bit. This was taken from my little porch outside the enclosed porch

This is the lower drive going up to the garage. I keep a spot like this cleared off for seed for the ground feeders. Mainly the Junco's and dove's. Wasn't too long after I took this that it was covered with birds and then more snow. I still had to clean the final inch of snow off this morning.

Then finally was able to get the flash to work with the background of the snow outside. My little tree all decorated with the tiny metal sleigh and soldier keeping watch beneath.

Schools are all closed today and I don't know if I'll get out to my beauty parlor or not. That ice has to melt a lot on the road first. Sun is shinning bright and it's clear up to 15. A heat wave.

Hope everyone has a great day and lots of quilting.

that is a great log cabin quilt!
love the cabin blocks in side the log cabin blocks! Would you mind telling me what book is this from? I have a few of Judy's books I hope this is one of them!
the snow looks so pretty, we are just having flurries here in NJ

The weather outside may be frightful -- but it looks like it's just perfect for getting some quilting done!

Wow, your KY Log Cabin is GORGEOUS, Eileen!! And isn't it wonderful that you can decide to just stay snuggled in when it snows? :) I do hope we get some snow this Winter here in northeast TN. It's been quite a few years now since we've had a good snow. :> I love feeding the birds too--I keep them better fed than I do my husband. LOL Happy Holidays!

love you log cabin quilt. I got a plastic cake container for Christmas last year with all the log cabin light and dark slices already cut. That might be just the thing. It came out wonderful. 20 here in Mariposa, snow to 4000 feet.
