Thinking of Summer.......

It's another day inside with -14 degrees this morning and a high forecast of 4 degrees.  Another day that the boys are off of school.  Boy are they excited!  So, I'm thinking ahead to warmer days and summertime by the water.  When I woke up this morning, the thermostat had stopped working and my second floor was 42 degrees.  It has taken most of the day today to warm back up. 

I was sewing in my chilly room, but hoping that thoughts of the beach would warm me up.  (I managed to sew through the chills).  I made 2 pillows today with a sailboat/water theme.  I had purchased the unfinished boat quilt pieces from a garage sale this past summer and knew that I wanted to make them into a pillow.  I used blue sailboat fabric that I also found a while back at a sale for the back of the pillow.  I had to finish the quilt blocks with blue and red borders.  They came out really nice.  I just may keep these for myself. 

When I bought the boat unfinished quilt pieces, I also bought other unfinished quilt pieces.  I was just looking through my fabric collection and found some pieces to finish them with.  More pillows are on the way.....

But I'm taking a break now to eat the brownies that just finished baking!
