Not so Easy Street

I made my design "wall" larger.  Now it extends from the very edge of the doorway to the other wall and all the way to the ceiling, although I need a step ladder to reach up there - I'm only 5 feet tall :-( and the ceilings are probably 8'.  My sewing room is 12' x 12'.  
I admire those of you who finished your Easy Street quilts!  Wow!  Lots of work.  All my blocks are done, I'm sewing the rows together today.    
I'm embarrassed to say that it's been in the back of my mind to finish the top, fold it up, and tuck it away somewhere, which is unusual for me; I'm just not liking these fabrics.  What a dope I am, though.  Too many times I rush along just to get it done.  And I know why.  It's because I have too little time to sew, so I feel like I have to hurry, otherwise, nothing will ever get done.  It makes for a lot of poor choices.  Maybe if I started quilting 20 years ago that wouldn't be the case.  Who knows.  Okay, enough rambling.  Have a good week, everybody.

Scrappy trip top done

I always love these kinds of shots - stained glass-looking.

from outside (after the blizzard):

My son shoveling out the mailbox:
Abbie kept wanting to be out in the snow, but she'll be 15 years old on February 27.  She kept shivering, even with her coat on, poor baby, so in the house she went. 
 I'm sorry to those of you who take the time to comment (I DO appreciate it), but I had to turn the word verification back on as I was getting lots of annoying spam!  
Have a wonderful Sunday!  May you bless and be blessed!
