I was up early Saturday and worked on the 16 patch quilt top. I left the house about 10 and didn't get back until after 6 p.m. I went to visit family and on the way home stopped at three different grocery stores. Sunday I got back at the quilt top and finished sewing it together.
I dug around the fabric storage room and found some pieces for the back. I want it to be as colorful as the front. I am using six pieces that were also used to make six of the 16 patch blocks. I have it almost sewn together.
Mother Nature is being mean right now. I rained all day Saturday then it turned to snow. We ended up with a couple inches. Here is a picture out the sewing room window. In the foreground are the daffodils. It is suppose to warm up to 44 today so I think they will be ok. I had gotten down to 20 degrees overnight. The next picture is what it look like at 8 p.m. I did see a salt truck this morning. The roads in Akron were covered, but as soon as I left the city limits the roads were clear.
Update on the iron situation - I decided to try cleaning my old iron before I declared it trash. I couldn't remember how to clean it so therefore I hadn't cleaned in in a couple of years. I got the directions out from the box with the new iron and guess what? After running it thru the cleaning mode three times, it steams again! I am such a goof! I plan on continuing to use it until it craps out and keep the new one for a spare.
I did make more banana cupcakes on Sunday. My boss's birthday is today so I made them for her.
