Snow AGAIN!!!

Well, Monday was nice, somewhat sunny, Tuesday was rain, Today was rain and then it turned to snow! I am so sick of snow!! No more! I want spring to come. I have tulips poking up by the front walk. I thought this was a sign of spring! Its so wet and cold out that I can't go outside! Ok, I'm done now.

One would think that I would finish some of my UFO's rather than start something new, but I didn't. I started something new. I am making this:

Part of it is a fat quarter bundle that I bought and then I added some other materials to get a large lap quilt/crib size. I like the colors in it. I still have to put the border and bind/back it, but it should be done by the weekend. I would also like to get the sashing in the heart quilt and I will have to see where that takes me. Everyone will be home on Friday, but it will be quiet here over the weekend with the kids at their moms and Rich having to work. I love these weekends!

Currently I am reading Brick Lane by Monica Ali. I am about halfway through and it is slow going right now. I hope it gets better soon. I enjoyed the first part but am kinda bored with it now. Rich is on a playstation kick so I read at night while he plays playstation. I don't normally sew after 9:00 because I don't like to keep the boys up and 9:00 is when they start getting ready for bed. By the time they are ready (they procrastinate!!) its usaully 10:00.
