More, More Farm Girl Blocks, and Blizzard

Yep, still more blocks for Farm Girl Vintage - I am getting close to the suggested 48!  The whole point to this lovely project was to make a quilt that took "a long time".  I'm trying to appreciate "slow progress". 

In the meantime, here is outside our front door, Christmas Day.  I just HAD to get out of the house.  Blizzard warnings and whiteout conditions kept most folks indoors.  The fresh air felt wonderful, but in a matter of minutes, my cheeks were feeling frostbit -- wind was terrible.  I walked only half a block one way then was sorry and came back inside!  Dh decided I had lost my mind.      
 A big "thank you" to the unknown folks who cleared off the sidewalk , the first time - they are so bundled up that we hadn't a clue!  By morning, the sidewalks needed it again, and "someone else"  cleared them.



Happy New Year everyone!!!

Happy New Year to you too! Christmas at this end of Nebraska was very soggy, but no snow. Christmas night we had crazy wind, gusts up over 70mph. Our power went out for about 4 1/2 - 5 hrs, but the power co. got us back up and running before it got too cold in the house. Thankfully the temps outside weren't too cold. I just read on my Kindle Paperwhite for a while & then went to bed...not a whole lot else we could do. :)
