And it did :)
Pep got home safely but the schools as well as the office are closed.
The chickens and bunnies are fed and watered and the heat turned on in the loft.
And I get to spend my day sewing the last block and borders on Fall Festival, last years Mystery Quilt BOM.
After all the trouble we had this last few months I was considering having Fall Festival be the last one we did as a kit.
And they truly are my favorite quilts I make.
They're always a sampler quilt (my favorite) made up of blocks I get to take my time on - one a month isn't a deadline compared to Market
and I'm not restricted to one fabric line.
I do love my Market quilts but the BOM's I kit are special for me.
So I decided to do another one this year but limit the amount we do to make it easier - I just keep getting older every year :)
We're sending the borders for Fall Festival out in January this time to make it easier on the budget for people so Let It Snow won't start until February.
This is a picture of Let It Snow (the 2015 BOM) in progress. The fabrics just got here yesterday.
I am - however - being disciplined - and finishing last years quilt first.
And that's not easy except I'm excited to see Fall Festival sewn together and off to Lori for quilting :)
Here's what the first block will look line - only on that navy background in the upper right corner.
Anyway, I love the snow and birds and houses - and of course snowmen.
If you want to join us, let us know as soon as possible because it's filling up already - people have been emailing already.
Have a good one ladies, I'm putting on my boots and going to the loft.

It really is almost Christmas!
This is Eagles and Roses and I designed it for my bed at Christmas.
Its so neat to get ready for Christmas by putting the quilts in place.
There's a tutorial on tips for doing the large center block. You can watch it by clicking here.
We only have 2 kits left
but we do still have the BOM available. And this week we've got it for half price. This is one of the last BOM's I did with color pictures of each block as well as of the whole quilt. It costs so much more to print them in color individually - the ink and the labor. Anyway, this week the pattern is half price. You can get the kit or the pattern by clicking here.
And while it's certainly way too late for this year, Christmas comes every year and this one could take you until next Christmas if you start right now. :)
Have a good week ladies.

This is my grandson Cullen (really Justin Cullen Riley Patek - but we just call him Cullen)
and this is the Santa he made for us a couple of years ago.
And this is the Santa's Tree Farm Quilt I made this year.
It's 44" x 68" and just fits on the back of my chair.
This is "On His Way", our latest Table Stand Mini Quilt.
I know we're pushing two together but we're trying to catch up and he is "On His Way".
Whew - it's almost upon us.
To back up just a little, this is Traditional Turkey and we have a tutorial that covers both it and Flock Party below.
You can see the tutorial by clicking here
and buy any of the kits or patterns by clicking here
Usually we give 15% off the patterns and kits the day we release the tutorial.
BUT we have gotten behind a bit and it is Cyber Monday so we'll catch up and even jump a little ahead by having 15% off all of these kits and patterns today only.
And we'll throw in a set of my Angel cards with each order today.
Have a great week ladies.
