Snow

The little part of the world where I live is covered with snow. Just to give you a little impression of how it looks like at Beeckestijn where I walked with my DH and Joseph our dog a few days ago. Here are a few pictures I took.





I made progress on my Jacob's ladder quilt. I love working with a two color combination block. Each block is becoming such a beauty! Each one I make I think is better than the last one and I loved the last one. All together they are making a beautiful quilt. My goal is to finish this top in a few weeks.




This little cross stitch project is becoming a little pinchushion. It is so cute to work on it.

Happy New Year Lucy!

Those pictures are gorgeous! I love the world wrapped in snow... when you don]t have to drive..!

Carole said...

We have had a lot of snow lately, as well. But also things like stomach flu bugs and running noses, which makes it practically impossible to dedicate any time to sewing. Too bad... your pictures are inspiring as always ! Your fabrics are gorgeous, and I can't wait to see the finished top. And the cross-stitching... makes me want to do one as well. I have many cross-stitch UFOs hanging around...

What a beautiful white world! I imagine Jospeh would have loved it as well.... ;)
Your Jacob's ladder and stitchery look great.
Have fun and enjoy your weekend. We should have more than enough snow!

North America and northern Europe are all a winter wonderland these days! I love your Jacobs ladder and have been looking for a tutorial online about this pattern. I am so happy that you are blogging again. I really love the kinds of work you do.

Janet said...

Those are stunning photos lucy, beauty comes at a price, it must be so very cold. We are in a heat wave at the moment, I would happily trade you some degrees. It's lovely to see little peeks of your projects.

Karen said...

Yes, lovely photos. I love two color quilts, and Jacob's Ladders. I am sure it will be stunning! The cross stitch looks very cute!

Miriam said...

Absolutely beautiful photographs of your snow covered part of the world.

I love your Jacobs Ladder blocks too

Pretty cross stitch. I love that fabric with your linen. :)

Stunning pictures!! The snow looks so pristine!

Your Jacob's Ladder looks great too..you're fabric choices are always so pretty.

Marit said...

Love to see your Jacobs ladder's blocks, very pretty fabrics! And beautiful snowy landscape pictures! It is a white winter in my home town, too. For the first time in decades... Vintage quilts and snow, they go together very well, I think... Keep warm!

Lori said...

Happy New Year Lucy!!! It looks so beautiful with the snow. I hope you are able to enjoy it.
Love the Jacob's Ladder blocks. I'm sure it'll be another stunning quilt when it's assembled. I just tried my hand at cross stitch, but it doesn't look as great as yours. So pretty!

tami said...

Those snow pictures are SO beautiful.
I can't wait to see your Jacob's Ladder quilt done. That is a beautiful simple pattern and it looks so good in the reproduction fabrics you are using.

Stina said...

Everything looks just wonderful... quiltproject... pictures... and the cross stitch... Have fun..:o)

Blanket America said...

Love your cross stitch...quilting is an interesting pastime and I see more often than never that one who quilts turns to more of stitching in one form or the rather.

A Time for Stitching said...

Wow!...your photos are fantastic and the similar colours connect them all. The snowy ones look like paintings and the little cross stitch is very like the motif in your quilt fabric.

sandra said...

It is so very very hot here, your winter photos are stunning! I truly wish I was there right now. Isn't it lovely to be able to work on several projects at once, whenever we feel like it. Linen and embroidery are made for each other.

Busy As Can Be said...

Beautiful Pictures! Thanks for sharing.

Shasta said...

Your snow scenery is beautiful. I don't think I would mind walking in the cold if our scenery was as nice. Your little blocks are looking wonderful as well.

So glad you are back posting, yep we have a lot of snow. Your photos are breathtaking. Your blocks are so cute and I love that dark fabric.

I love your fabrics Lucy. So soft and feminine, yet strong combinations.

Elaine Adair said...

The snow and that building are so pretty - but look how similar the photo is to the Jacob's Ladder block?! That is my most favorite block of all times. Lovely job!

Ann Marie said...

Oh I love the pics of the snow!!!! I am getting ready to start a Jacob's Ladder, and that is how I found this post.
