It's snowing! so might as well sew!

Well if you are from the DC area you know that we are getting snow......funny thing about this part of the country..they talk about the expected weather long before it happens....and of course if it finally does hit it becomes the most important thing in the NEWS! One thing at least though snow always looks pretty here....
So anyway when it might as well sew ;-)
The postage stamp quilt along  is getting interesting.........I showed my beginning steps on a few of my past here is newest update.......
Original strips are now cut into 2 1/2 inch strips

Take 5 strips either 2-3-2-3-2 or 3-2-3-2-3 and sew together

So here are 4 of my blocks that have been sewn into blocks and hanging on design board.

This is going to take some time...but will have to wait till after our little ski weekend...we head to New Jersey to bunk at son's house tomorrow and then onward to Vermont ;-) continuation on this quilt top will have to wait til next week.
Hope to get some sketching done while we are on the road........and maybe some handwork? Time will tell.....
