Snow! Sunday Stash and Superbowl Party.

We got hit with a nice amount of snow last night, and it's supposed to keep snowing into tomorrow morning. When I woke up there was about 6 inches I'd say, and there's a bit more. It's not snowing really heavily, it just doesn't stop. I'll get out at some point today and take some pictures.

I have some stash pics to share today. The first two are St Patrick's Day fabrics I have had for a long time, and I am going to use at least some of them this year. The first pictures are all smaller pieces, a yard or less. I used some of the back print in a table runner for my mom. I like the middle piece quite a bit, and I hope I can incorporate it into a quilt.

These next 3 pieces are all bigger yardages. The front piece is just over a yard, the back 2 pieces are 3 1/2 yards each. I meant to make shirts out of them and just never did. I really would like to make a quilt out of them, I just don't know what. An Irish Chain is the obvious choice, but I really don't want to make one.

I also ordered a scrap pack from Hawthorne Threads. I had heard that they were really nice, and one evening I was sitting at the computer with a bottle of wine, a credit card and the scrap packs were half off! I bought one in the cool colorway, and I am very pleased with it.

I already cut out and sewed together a couple of pieces for a zipper pouch. I am going to get this quilted today before the Super Bowl.

I made some other fabric purchases the night of the bottle of wine, but I'll share those later!

Speaking of the Super Bowl, today is the big day! We are heading over to our sons to watch it, and hopefully the roads will be clear. It's a pretty big deal for us, and John has been bugging me for a month about what food I am bringing. I finally decided on barbecue sliders and a cheese and chorizo dip. If I were to bet (which I haven't) I would lay my money on the Patriots for this one. I think Tom Brady really wants that ring! And for anyone who hasn't seen this YouTube clip from Jimmy Kimmel, it's funny as hell!

You have done a great job. I will definitely dig it and personally recommend to my friends. I am confident they will be benefited from this site. Siro spinned yarns
