Snow, Snow and More Snow!

I can't remember when we've had as much snow as we have had this winter. I spent 2 hours yesterday shovelling the driveway, and they're calling for more today! I hate it and I'm aching all over! LOL DH went out this morning, before he left for work, to clear around the side and back of the house, so the delivery men can bring in the new washer and dryer. They're supposed to leave the old ones on the curb to be picked up, but they'll have to leave them on top of the piles of snow!
On the quilting front, I decided to try and finish a few old projects. These blocks were for the Vintage Tiles quilt I was designing last year, but I changed my mind about the colours and shelved them. Since I had 8 blocks glued and ready for applique I decided to try and finish them. I have no idea how I'm going to put this one together, but for now it's something I can do while resting my weary bones, after shovelling! LOL


What do you think? I think I still prefer the look of the neutrals, but I might change my mind by the time I get this one put together.

Our snow piles are getting pretty big too! Luckily I have been able to avoid the shoveling thought! Hubby always beats me to it...and that is not a bad thing at all!!! 8-)
Blocks looking good! I say go with it...
Happy stitchings!

I like both versions of Vintage Tiles, but I think I like the neutrals version best. Is this pattern available? Will it be? Love your work. Be careful shoveling snow.

Oh how pretty - I love the colors. Your work is just great - and it's good to see you posting. Hope you don't have much more snow to shovel.

Hi Susan,
Thankyou for visiting my blog. The Vintage Tile quilt in the neutrals is still my favorite too. Can't wait to get it back from the quilter!

Hey Dorothy! Hmmm ... I loved your vintage tile blocks in the neutrals, but I love these colours too - especially the red and green together, but then, I'm a bit of a colour freak!! Tee! Hee! Hee! Having email issues again, so I'm sulking and just visiting other people's blogs to cheer myself up! Happy stitching! Bear Hugs! KRIS

Hi Dorothy,
