IS IT POSSIBLE TO HAVE SNOW IN AMERIKA SAMOA?

I have a small stash of vintage fabrics, I made this potholder from 70's fabric. I might redo the binding, don't like how it turned out.



Then there is snow and more snow at my house.... I just love these blocks and the colors. I would be done but I miscalculated and so I am having to make more snow. So when I found out I had miscalculated, I stopped....just stopped....will pick up again later.



Alot of you liked the picture yesterday so I am leaving you with another one.

I like your saying up there before the comments. Life is a breeze with you in it :)

Love the potholder! Maybe a red binding?

Love the snowballs. They look great with the 9 patch blocks.

Ocean scenes are always nice to look at.

Did you stay up all night working on your snowball quilt? I'm impressed. You'll have it quilted and bound before I have my five blocks for January complete! Beautiful.

Barb I can't believe that teapot fabric is from the 70's. It is so modern and cute. I love it!

The only snow you are going to get to really really feel the cold is from your freezer.
Too funny your heading Barb.

LOVING the blue sky/ocean photo. Your project pictures are nice, too. We are going to have snow tomorrow...do you want me to send some to you?? LOL

I like the potholder. I think a solid color binding would give a nice resting place for the eye. (since the rest is patterned) I love the teapot applique.

Well, we definitely have the real kind of snow here in West Texas -- enough to shut down schools today. They had more north of us. Thanks for the pic! Your snowball blocks and 9-patches look wonderful together. How do you get so much done?

Oh, sure do it again! Rub it in! With a little elbow grease! Love your snow quilt, not that I have snow here either but I think it is very lovely!

Millie said...

Barb, I prefer your blue snow ball quilt over snow. Cute tea cup too.

You are really busy making snow! I've had enough of it. I would rather look out and see an ocean scape like yours.

Barb,

That's the only kind of snow I like anymore and it's FREEZING here in Fort Worth, TX!

Happy quilting,
Susan

Cute potholder and lovely photo.. Lucky you!! We don't have snow here either. Thankfully just rain.

Very cute potholder! Didn't even notice the binding until you mentioned it, now I don't like it either. It's all your fault (ha ha-just kidding)
I think you will miss the ocean when you move back to TX!

I love your potholder. I'm especially fond of teapots. I think it looks perfect as is. Enjoy your snowballs!

Kaye said...

The pot holder looks fine the way it is. The pictures of the ocean are soooo nice. To me there is such relaxation and peacefulness looking at them. I can just feel the warm sun on my face, while I sit on a rock reading a good book!

Love the teapot...and the snowball blocks...but so jealous of the ocean!!!

Cutie pie teapot. I like it very much. So do you swim in that water very much??? Just got back from Florida and it was soooo cold. No beach for me.
