A Finished Top - Which Witch's Boot

We woke up to snow this morning.

I've finally found a good back drop for photographing a black cat - snow! We've never had a cat who would set one toe out in the snow, until now. Crazy cat! She insisted on going out every time one of us went out to sweep the snow from the walk and sidewalk. I guess she feels she needs to supervise.

The forecast was for 1 to 2 inches. We got more than that and it may snow some more tonight and tomorrow morning.

We had 4.5 inches at about 10 am and it snowed until about 1 pm. Probably got about another inch of accumulation. I'm not complaining about the snow. We really need it! The local ski areas will finally be able to open almost a month later than they usually do.

All this snow makes for great sewing weather. Most of my work is done except for calculating final grades and turning them in. Grades aren't due until Tuesday so today I did this.

I let my OCD side out for a bit and cut the jack-o-lantern fabric so that they are all right side up. Good thing I bought extra of this fabric to use on the back because this was not the most efficient use of fabric. I don't care though. I've got lots of fabric! If I don't have enough of the jack-o-lantern fabric for the back I'm sure I have enough of something else or I'll just piece the back with two fabrics.

Oh, my gosh! You got all that snow! We're still waiting here in Michigan. Everyone wants a white Christmas. Great picture of your cat. Love how your Witch's boot turned out. It pays to have OCD!

Oh! I love how your quilt turned out! So different from mine! I like your black border fabric so much better than mine! You didn't use Guising for that, huh? I looked for something else to use, because I wasn't too sure about the polka dots on mine. But I couldn't find anything I liked. I love what you did. And all those pumpkins going the right way....way to go! I love it! Love your snow. I'm in FL right now but I think Michigan is getting pounded tonight. We need the moisture, too!

Great finish of your boot embroidery! I think the pumpkins should be all facing up, too. That's why we buy extra fabric - just in case. Happy New Year!
