Sew and Tell Friday

I didn't mean for it to almost be 2 weeks before I posted anything on my blog! 

There's been a lot of this:  One snow storm after the other.

A lot of this:  teenagers out of school hanging out at my house (which I love).

There's been a little bit of
sewing.  I  got the diaper bag finished.
(This is my Sew and Tell Friday Finish.  Be sure to check out Amy's blog to see what everyone else finished this week.)

and a little bit of sleeping late (really late) which is unusual for me. 

There's been a whole lot of this:  doing the Quilter's Winter Olympic Challenge with Pat Sloan

It's harder than I thought to watch the Olympics while sewing! My finger came close to getting sewed in the seams of the diaper bag.  (I've done that before.  It's not fun!)
 After I finished the diaper bag I started
fusing the applique to a quilt that I started 5 years ago. 

This is as far as I got.  I still have the top, bottom, and side borders to fuse together, but this will keep me busy (along with several other projects) when I take it with me to
 the lakehouse with me this weekend to celebrate Terry's birthday.   Her entire family of girls/women (from 1-65) and me (there's 19 of us) are going to sew all weekend.  Terry and I will be teaching them how to make Turning Twenty quilts. 
We'll sew, eat (they requested I bring my Italian Cream Cake.  The link to the recipe is on my sidebar.), and most likely get snowed in.  Yes, another snow storm is on it's way.

And, speaking of snow storms, I finally figured out who's fault it is that we're having all of this unusual snow.  It's Sharon, little miss red geranium cottage herself.  She moved to St. Louis (4 hours from me) from California.  All she has talked about since she moved there is how much she wants to see snow.  Well she got it, and she's enjoying every bit of it!     

I'll be back next week! 

Have a great weekend!
