Lollypop Tree

The year of the BOM continues. You already know I'm working on the Baltimore Christmas quilt, and I'll also be doing the Sue Spargo 2011 BOM project. But wait! There's more! Hubby got me Kim McLean's Lollypop Tree pattern along with plenty of chocolate Kaffee Fasset Aboriginal Dot for the backgrounds.
These are big, easy curves to applique - a walk in the park after the Baltimore Christmas angels! And it's really fun to fussy cut wonderful Kaffee fabrics to stitch.

There are 16 blocks in this quilt, so it's not truely a BOM, but it will be fun to work on this year.

We have a forecast of up to 8 inches of snow here Sunday night. Along with ice. Oh dear.

Hubby and I are ready in case the power goes out. We have stocked up on peanut butter and jelly, along with trail mix so we won't starve.

We've stocked up on batteries for the flashlights so we can see.

I did all the laundry so we'll have clean clothes.

We stocked up on paper plates and cups in case we can't wash dishes.

We even went the extra mile and rented a generator to power our television Monday night so we can watch our alma mater in the National Championship game.

Bring on the snow!
