Well, the snowstorm that they said we were going to get - we got. There is about 4 inches of snow out there now and they expect about 4 more over night. The kids didn't have school today and are outside playing in it right now. Its so quiet in here...hmmm....I have to say though that even though I hate the cold and snow I love the way the trees look with the snow on them.

So its a good day to stay inside and curl up with a quilt project. Well, first I had a drs appointment, my 4 week check-up. Everything looks good but I am still retaining water. They upped my Lasix, fun fun, and I go back next week for another follow-up. The boys went along and we picked up pizza on the way home so dinner is taken care of.

I did finish these squares that my mom started oh so long ago. The hearts are actually appliqued on using a blanket stitch (I believe).

Now I just have to find some material for the sashing, border, backing and binding. I am also trying to finish my red, white and blue block of the month that we did I don't know how many years ago. And of course the aprons will be finished and have a picture posted by the end of the week.
Tonight I am going to stay inside (Not that I would do anything else) and be warm underneath my big comfy quilt.

I like the hearts. Glad to see they are getting done. I vaguely remember them - they have to be from 96 or 97 - anyhow, a long, long time ago.

Love the photos, although I could go for warmer weather. Also, those hearts look pretty good. Was a good idea when I started it I guess. Mom
