Definitely Out of Character

We're definitely getting ice. It was icy by the time Tom drove home and it continues to get worse. We're experiencing what they say is round two of three lines of freezing rain/sleet/snow. It sounds like we'll just get the ice part. The poor folks in Oklahoma are really getting smacked and there have been lots of accidents, including a couple of deaths already. It was a relief to hear my son, his wife, and grandkids over in Missouri all got home safely. I'm hoping the police officer granddaughter isn't working tonight.

So what's out of character....that would be the BRIGHT colors of this stack 'n whack I worked on this afternoon. Definitely doesn't have the "Mary" look at all. But it's kind of fun. It will be a very large top as I have 11 more blocks to make, plus borders.

Only one Dutch Treat completed tonight. It's called Clowns. I have no idea why. Is suppose you could see clown mouths..but I see tulips.

Hope everyone in the area affected by this winter storm stays safe and warm. Don't go out unless you absolutely have to.

Looks great - what is that saying about new tricks??? We are getting the snow 4 inches so far and soon the ice YUK! Stay in and stay warm.

They sure are colorful and will make a beautiful quilt. It's interesting how we see things differently, I see more the mouth than the tulip. (well after I read the name of the block)I think all your appliqued blocks are just wonderful.

Happy Stitchin'!
