The Weather Outside is Frightful

Come in and visit! Tonight the wind is howling ferociously and it's snowing hard. I love a good blizzard if everyone's home and the power is still on! Reading by the fire with a glass of wine and one of those chocolate haystacks that I was complaining about yesterday is so nice. This afternoon I took some more photos to show you. (I'm writing this on Sunday evening.)

The photo below was taken from inside the dining room looking into the porch.

The quilt room below is starting to take shape. I'll have more photos soon. I like the Statue of Liberty next to the bolts of backing fabrics. Knitting needles are stored in vases on top of the other bookcase. The wire bird cage thingy is from Pier One Imports.


While I'm getting unpacked I thought I'd show you around. I'll get back to selvage stuff before long. If you're in a snowy place, I hope you are warm and safe. If you're on a sunny beach somewhere, send us a picture!

The view out your window is beautiful, as is your new home. I could sure curl up on that couch in the quilting room and stay for awhile.

Inviting entry, love the all the windows, comfy sewing room. The creative juices must be stirring while surrounds by so much beauty. Wishing you good health and cozy quilts in the new year.

I hope this is just a minor inconvenience versus a huge ordeal. Enjoy settling into your new home!

I love your dining room chairs. I'm in a snowy place, but it shouldn't be! We enjoyed Atlanta's first white Christmas since 1882. No blizzard, though. Only about an inch.

Karen, your new house is wonderful. Perfect for a gal like you. Looking forward to seeing your new creations in the new year. Do you have a spare room for your mom?

I was hoping you'd show us your quilt room as it takes shape for you.
I folded and organized my fabrics over two years ago and my stash is still tidy. Imagine the concept...workable usable stash :)

It looks magical outside, but I am glad that you are safe and warm inside.

Thanks for the peek into your home. I can't wait to see more of the sewing room, it looks very inviting.

Wow Karen what a gorgeous view. Love your sewing room. It's going to be real tough to work in there :-)

Wow, looks pretty cold. Just as cold as they keep telling us on the news. I am on the Texas Gulf Coast and complaining about 35 degree mornings with 50 degree highs. Guess I better be quiet. The sewing room looks lovely and the Statue of Liberty just the right touch. Happy unpacking & Happy New Year.

Your place is looking just beautiful!! We just got back last night from NJ and had to get into the driveway. Lucky we have 4 wheel drive. We just backed up about 50 feet and put the pedal to the metal to get in the driveway. Today we dig out.
