Snowy day and black and white progress

I posted some detail pics recently of the black and white religious CQ I've been working on, so I thought I'd post one of the whole thing so far. That center image is from some fabric I had printed at Spoonflower, an online business that will take your original artwork and print it on fabric by the fat quarter or by the yard.


Here are some images of our recent snow storm. We got a foot in some places, and it drifted over 18" in others. It's been incredibly, and I mean INCREDIBLY cold since then, so it will be around for awhile. This may seem like "par for the course" for Colorado, but not in this part of Colorado; we're not called "the banana belt" for nothing. Usual weather is much milder here in the valley, with snow accumulating in the higher areas, but not so much here. It does make for some interesting icicles though. Can you see that the wind is blowing the snow and the icicles sideways?

I took this at midday on Tuesday. A bit more fell, but it also started to compress down a bit. That red thing is a ruler standing up. We may have a white Christmas this year, but it will probably be old snow...

Janet, I love the quilt! Of course I love the black and white theme. Can't wait to see it completed. Wish we had snow, all we get is rain!

I love that center angel, Janet. You are so talented. Brrrr...it looks very cold at your house. Did it snow this much in Ridgway also?

I'm really liking the black & white quilts right now. Your lettering on this is just perfect and gorgeous.

Janet,
Beautiful work and even more 'beautiful' subject. Thank you for your openness in sharing your faith in Christ.
