I heard on the news that 50,000,000 Americans have been impacted by the snow storms hitting the nation.
So while I may not be special, I still think the snow sure is pretty.

Looky what I made....my first Tuffets!!
I used Maison de Noel scraps, and I mean scraps, to make these. I was surprised that it took me pretty much all day just to make 3. But I think it was time well spent, I'm pleased with how they turned out. I'm also glad I got around to trying out the Tuffet pattern because now I have a better idea of what I should be keeping instead of throwing away. In the past I would normally only keep strips and larger pieces of leftover fabric, but these tuffets can be made out of fabric that usually goes into my trash. So now I'll have two bags of leftovers, large pieces and Tuffet pieces.
I used crushed walnut shells to fill them. The Maison de Noel family of fabric came with linens, cottons and velveteens. The velveteens made horrible geese but great backs for Tuffets.
I'm hoping to make tuffets from all my finished projects .
I'm still trying to decide what to do with Paprika but have really appreciated your comments. Yes, I agree, your eyes don't have any place to settle when you look at those blocks. I think I have too many print fabrics. As someone told me, "you need some prints that read as a solid". I also really liked what Quilter Kathy said, ask the quilt "what do you want from me". Right now I want Paprika to appear less busy and Paprika wants me to accept her as she is.....we'll keep talking this weekend!
