Especially when it's too cold to want to get up at a decent hr.  Well, 9:30 it was today.

Y'all be careful in this weather! I'm trying to stay in and stay warm.

Ditto to you. I went out, let out the birds, broke 3 inch thick ice off all the pools and headed back to the warm house. I will have to go out every couple of hours and re-do water to make sure they have something to drink. But that is a cheap price to pay. The birds are totally nuts. Running around acting normal like it was summer time.

I have extra sensitive skin and scalp so I use baby shampoo and body wash.

 

I have no excuse.:idunno 

 

Hey! It's up to -3 here. HEAT WAVE! My birds are still shut up in the coop. Everyone is frostbite free so far. I gave them fresh water and discovered that their heated dish was frozen to the pallet so I had to wrestle it loose. I put down another bag of leaves to give them something to scratch around it and beat a path to the house.

 

It was -9 at the time and we had about two inches of snow over ice.

Still downright disgusting outside, and slippery. Currently 37 with rain, although there's a really nice layer of ice that came down this morning. And to top it off tomorrow is going to be a high of 13 so all of this lovely precip today is going to turn into a giant sheet of ice! :celebrate

 

 

In good news, I got the bunny finished. 

 

Dsqard and I both did this as a quiltalong - it's just a panel of fabric that we quilted details onto over the last 2 months(ish). I'm not a huge fan of my fern - looks more like a green millipede crawling up the side of my quilt but overall I like it and more importantly it's done.

Some are drawn out - the sun skeleton is drawn (some of the fillers are free motion within it), the spine of the "fern" and the lines radiating out from the center of the spider web (the around lines are free motioned on). The outside border has a few "dots" at 2.5 inches to try to keep me even (it didn't work). I'm washing it now to get the marks off it, but the majority is free handed.

Absolutely gorgeous SGC. I finally got a start on my panel project. My biggest roadblock at the moment seems to be my difficulty in locating an alteration pencil that will show up on black material.

 

Are you hand quilting or are you machine quilting? BTW I love both the feather and the cobweb. Simply beautiful. And no, I don't think it looks like a centipede.

I picked up a chalk pencil (mechanical) a few years back that marks a thin line on dark fabric. It works pretty good and more importantly, comes out easily. It has 3 colors - white, pink and can't remember, but that's what I use to mark out darks. 

 

This is machine quilting on my Juki.
