Winter has finally blanketed our area with a hefty amount of snow. Unfortunately, one of the downsides of living at your place of business, you don't get to have a snow day because you can't get to work! So while my normal work day continued, I did get to take a break to tromp around in the fluffy white stuff with our two dogs - Hudson (the Dalmatian) and Bree (the Ridgeback).

Making 2 king size log cabin quilts has depleted my stash of navy blue, moss green, chocolate brown, and tan fabrics. The stash was definitely in need of a refill.
This was just the excuse I needed to plan an outing to theJoyful Quilter in Glenville, NY. One of my favorite shops and shop owners, Bob Silverman of the Woodstock Quilt Supply shop had recently closed his shop in Woodstock and joined forces with the folks at the Joyful Quilter and I wanted to go check it out!
Here is Bob cutting all of the fabric I just couldn't resist.

It feels good to be making progress. I finished the first set of 72 log cabin blocks.
I finished another knitting project. This time a fun scarf. The pattern was called Fickle Fingers and I found it in Interweave's Knits magazine. I don't remember the issue, but it was a couple of years back. This was a quick knit and I really like the way it turned out. It will definitely be one to do again.
