MAY I HAVE YOUR ATTENTION PLEASE!  I just wanted to tell you that the 1 p.m. Applique Bee which is scheduled for Tuesday at the Attic Window Quilt Shop has been cancelled.  Well, you can still go if you can make it and are brave enough to drive on these icy roads.  I, however, cannot get out of my subdivision.  Three people were stuck on the hill (it’s really only a bump) in front of my house this afternoon.  The city plow has not been down our street in three days and I’m just not brave enough to try to drive my light car.  Besides, I heard on the TV that we should stay off the road unless absolutely necessary.  (One more day of this and it may be necessary because I'm going bonkers!) So sorry about this as I really wanted to see what you’ve been doing and it was our first Applique Bee of 2014!  Hope you all can make it next month. 

The above picture is what I did today.  I practiced on my free motion quilting.  I need lots and lots of practice! (My daughter took one look at it and said, "Hasn't anyone ever told you that you're not supposed to use machinery when you've been drinking!")

Isn't this weather just the limit? When I finally can, I'm going to leave this house like I've been shot out of a cannon!

Oh looks great, love that pebbling--and love your daughter´s comment Caroll! She just might be wrong though--I´ve heard it´s actually easier to freemotion if you´re drinking a little, should help you relax and let loose. :o) Be a rebel and give it a go?! Hugs! Bobbi
