    I do speed piece.........just have not done it with a long piece of sashing...........don't know why! ARRGGHH. I cut the sashing --for each block----then speed piece them.

    My basement is going to be sooooo cold that I am not sure when I will get the 'main sashing' sewn on.............got the 'up sashing pieces' all on now..........(that is the piece that brings the blocks up to the size of the others). Like my terms??

    We are headed to below zero.........so I may just be huddled under a blanket!! I got out my LONG JOHNS today............for the second time this winter!!!

    Are you SERIOUS dc???

    Course you should see the three pairs of pants I have/save for the really cold stuff. Got a pair out today.........along with a super heavy Woolrich pullover that my sis gave me years ago........and I almost got rid of it!!

    I LOVE my "cuddle duds" in the really cold weather.........they are 'slick' so you can pull up your pants without getting a 'smurf'....

    I have NEVER had my fleece sheets on my bed for this long!! They usually get too hot.

    Opps..........a little 'off topic'...........the ONLY thing good about winter is that it gives me time for crafting!

    ...and I almost didn't go to the pool today because the air and water temp were both 79 degrees!!

    I figure that I'll start the hand quilting on my Hawaiian quilt this weekend - DH is going to Kauai, the weather sounds junk, and I can do whatever I please!!

    Just HAD to rub it in didn't you MM?????

    Shoveled this AM.............in a minus 7 wind chill, I might add.

    Glad you get to have some free time.........and do 'whatever' this weekend........that means making a mess and not worrying about it!!

    I think we should all board a plane and go to her house.
    MM we are coming to see you!!!!

    Got about a foot.........at my place it was less. We have two days and then it comes back in EVERYDAY NEXT WEEK it looks like now....60% chance.....that is pretty good.

    We have been TWO AND A HALF MONTHS with no snow (to speak of--maybe an inch here and there)......and we had SUSTAINED 20 MPH winds..........it was a mess. Even the colleges/universities closed down and they NEVER do. A minus 4 for temp. tonight with a wind chill of minus 25. 12 degrees tomorrow......whew...heat wave...turn on the fans!!

    Yep........they said this was going to Colorado.........then up to Chicago with the airstream---as it stands right now.

    I was too tired today to work on the sashing but I hope to get something done this weekend at least.

    This is EXACTLY why I can wear shorts once it turns 50 degrees. All winter.....usually 6 months long around here!.....with below freezing temps .....50 IS a heatwave and the shorts are on!

    I am thinking of you all very fondly - as I definitely rub it in!! Have decided to be stricter about my pool times - before 10AM and after 4PM - that will help keep me out of the sun more!!

    I am planning on working on my quilt this weekend too - tonight would be a good time to start.

    And I plan on STAYING INSIDE and working on my sashing.........didn't get a chance today....too busy.

    But.......LUCKY US......our next storm rolls in Sat. night (but might stay north of Spokane).........so weather will be crafting weather.

    I have to start 'taxi duty' next week......I think it is......for a friend that just had her knee replaced (for her physical therapy) so I had best get busy.........not sure how often this is.

    FF - you are such a good person - and a fine taxi driver you shall be!!

    I was thinking of you tonight - I worked on some Easter decorations based on Preschoolers' artwork - involving gluing and cutting tissue paper. I want you to know that I picked up and threw away all the little pieces, folded and banded together all the large sheets and put all parts of the project into a basket - to be continued tomorrow.

    Now if taking care of the rest of the crap in the LR were only as easy!!

    MM --if you saw the stack of fabric PIECES that I have to put away in my basement you would just laugh. That is what I am THE WORST at...........the ones I am going to save-the bigger pieces........the others get 'sorted' as I do them.

    Was working on LC today.......and when I added the two more rows of squares I couldn't get it to look right.......so started to sew........then stopped............AND......looks like I will be sleeping under the squares tonight so I don't have to 'rearrange' tomorrow!!

    when I laid it out to take a pic for here........it was only about 30 squares.............BUT..........I have 40......sure made a difference in the balance of it.
