A snow-in quilting day! Rollin' along again!

Well...late, but certainly plentiful! It's been snowing non-stop since it started last night. I tried getting a picture to show how the wind is literally making it look like the snow is coming down completely sideways, but it didn't turn out. This picture is on the "quiet" side of the house; I'm quite certain if I were to head out and check out the driveway, there will be drifts well over 2 feet tall due to the wind.

Brrrrrr! No going outside for me! However, DH headed out this AM to spend the day ice-fishing. Double brrrrr!


While looking over blogs with my coffee in hand this morning, I really didn't have any specific quilting plans for the day; just another "whatever-I-feel-like-working-on" day. But, as I was in the stairwell on my way to my sewing room---it hit me! ROLL ROLL COTTONBOLL will see action today!!!

I left off with 240 HSTs the last time I worked on RRCB (on Feb. 5). So.......zooooooooooooooooooooooom! A couple of hours later, ALL 600 DONE DONE DONE!

And then some more zooooooooooooooooooooooming! The HSTs pieced into the 5er sets!

And then.....ya guessed it....ZOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOmin some more and step #6 was completely finished!

LOL....okay. So the day hasn't completely zoomed by! I've been at it for 7 hours finishing up step #5 and step #6. I'm startin' in on step #7 but came up to change the load of clothes and check on the girls. They're playing the Wii game and still getting along so far. (They've been at it for only 15 minutes).

We've just got gloom and grey and rain, but it's reasonably mild, so I don't want to swap with you! There's still time for us to get snow though, but we're keeping our fingers crossed. That's a pretty block you've made, lovely colours.

Your RRCB blocks are gorgeous. Love the colors you chose. That project is a lot bigger than I first thought it was going to be, but I think it will be worth it in the end. I only have the inner border and the pieced outer border left. Will be back to see how your top when it's finished.

It is going to be lovely! Love the snow. We won't see anymore of that white stuff this season. It is already warming back up to almost 60 degree days.

That block is looking good...can't wait to see it all come together! So jealous I didn't get past clue one on that one! (yet)

Loving how RRCB is coming together. Maybe mine will see some action on spring break? Maybe? I can't believe you are having snow again! Sorry you haven't been able to have any snow days yet, but at least you aren't at the point of worrying about making them up yet, unlike my sister in Georgia of all places! I guess it has been a weird winter all around.....
