Quilting | Geese and Snow

Hello friends, over the weekend my fiance and I went up to our cabin. We try and make the two-hour jaunt most weekends. The cabin has power but no running water or gas, except for the gas stove which is hooked up to a large propane bottle outside. 


I mostly stayed inside and used my mother in laws old sewing machine to do some quilting on the Monster Mash, and the Geese Quilts.  I also used my ball winder to untangle the ungodly mess of yarn barf I have up at the cabin in my stash. 

I thought that it would be nice to take some pictures of the quilts up there but the light wasn't quite bright enough, the snow, however, was a delightful show. 

The Geese quilt is under the needle in my city sewing room now that we are back in the city for the week. I wonder if it will be done for the Friday finishes!?! that would be fun. 



Until the next time we can get up there, I will dream and remember the cozy time I spend at our getaway.


Until next time my friends, stay cozy or cool, whichever.

Sarah

    1. Thank you Kaja. It was so deceiving, from inside the cabin it looked really bright outside but once I got out there I could tell the light was behind the trees and the clouds. I have to remember winter light is different than summer light at 5:oopm. durh.lol.

  3. Your geese top looks great. To me they are flying north - spring is on its way! Thanks for sharing with Oh Scrap!

    1. It totally does feel like spring is on the way even if we did just get a bunch of snow, that bitter bitter cold is gone and a mild sunny version is moving in. I'll take it!

    1. Thanks! one of the joy's of making quilts is that they sit on my lap while I am sewing/quilting/binding. I love blankets, I don't discriminate. lol. I felt safer on the road home too, knowing if we got stuck we wouldn't be short of warmth.

  5. What a fun project, and a great setting to work on it. So great to be warm and cozy inside when the weather is cold and ... cold outside!

    1. It was a really fun "no pattern" project. I kept marveling on the beauty outside and how truly lucky I am. This quilt is going to someone in trade for home made local fruit pies :)

  6. The geese quilt is so beautiful and I love your pictures of the snow. I wish I was there as it has warmed up here and it's getting all slushy.

    1. Geese are pretty awesome to make. I was intimidated by them at first but they just sort of flew together. lol
