February 2022 – UFOs & OMG Progress

Well, I can’t say the month progressed as planned, but I did keep busy. Plus, after all February is a short month.

February 2022 – Goals, UFOs & OMG

Groundhog Day 2022. According to Punxsutawney Phil, we are looking at six more weeks of winter. But I’ve always wondered how a groundhog in Pennsylvania can predict the weather where I live. We do have a “local” rodent celebrity, Potomac Phil (a stuffed relative of the one in Pennsylvania) and he doesn’t always agree with Phil. The local forecast is for temps in the 50’s today, so I’ll take that for now. Then cold & wet is expected to return for the weekend.

January 2022 – Goals, UFOs & OMG Progress

The first month of the year is nearly in the books. We’ve had more snow and lots of very cold weather. But we were lucky to miss the worst of the Nor’easter which brought Blizzard conditions along the Atlantic Coast and up into New England this past weekend.

I rescheduled my appointment with the American Red Cross to donate Platelets and then returned two weeks later to donate both Platelets and Plasma. Unlike donating Whole Blood, donating Platelets and Plasma takes 3 hours. They have individual televisions and after checking in I was able to watch a couple of movies. What did they do before Netflix?

January 2022 – Goals, UFOs & OMG

Happy New Year! 2022 has started out in a unique way — Sunday’s High Temperature was in the 60’s and Monday we woke to 28F and snow. By the time it ended we had a wet, sticking to everything 8″ of snow.

The city shut down. Federal Government was ‘closed’ and most school systems added an extra day to their winter break, streets were a mess, and accidents and stranded vehicles cluttered the highways. A perfect day to spend in the sewing room. Mostly I did clean-up from the December sewing madhouse and organizing projects for the New Year. I had an appointment with the American Red Cross to donate Platelets/Plasma but had to cancel and reschedule it for later this week.

It’s finished, and now I can Share

I have been working on this for a while, and now it is ready to head to its home. I am not the one who pieced the top, but I added the final border and quilted it on my Bernina.
