I only have the spool ends on one block, but with the forecasted high temperature of minus one today, I just may have them finished up shortly!  I don't think I am going out as the wind chills could reach 40 below.   In fact they closed the school district today because of the cold.  But that's okay, I don't have to leave.  The cupboards and freezer are stocked, so bring it on!  I just worry about those without warm homes, or those with furnaces that can't be trusted, or those who are at the end of their money for the month and have empty cupboards.  If you know someone in that situation, please check on them when it's this bitter cold.  I will too.
So stay home, stay warm, and stay busy in the sewing room!

Minus one - how awful! Tomorrow is supposed to be our coldest day yet this year and the high will be 40. :) blessings, marlene

Hi Marge! I am with you on the FMQ. I have tried a couple of times, even with the big machines at a show, and I just don't seem to get it. I do have the right foot for my new machine, so I am going to try practicing a little bit. I like traditional quilting for the most part, but it would be nice to be able to do a little bit of a design in the right quilt. Hope you stayed warm yesterday, and stay warm today!
