I enjoy the quiet, the beauty, the peacefulness, the cold, etc. What I really hate is the loss of power what sometimes accompany it when there is a mix of ice with the storm. We had heat because we have the gas log insert in our fireplace. That kept us quite cozy.
I was all set to sew on my Bonnie Hunter Celtic Solstice Part 2, this weekend and found myself without electric power. So what is a girl to do, you might ask? Well, break out the hand-crank sewing machine and sew, of course. This was much fun to 'power' sew on the hand-powered sewing machine. It did take a lot more time to get those 100 chevron units finished and my arm was tired and sore from the marathon effort, but I must say I did enjoy the process. I did need the line drawn on the units that I sewed because this machine wanted to veer to the left a bit and I did not want to put tape on the bed of this vintage beauty.

Wanted to also share with you, a pattern that I had to have. It's called Round & Round by Thimble Blossoms Company by Camille Roskelley. I took one of her classes on Craftsy and just loved her. When I saw this quilt in the background of one of the segments and just had to purchase it. I ordered five yards of the navy background but won't be able to start another quilt until after Celtic Solstice is finished.
Happy Quilting all...
