Design Wall on a Wintry Monday
I should never have said that we were going to go through this winter without a bit of ice or snow. The freezing rain started last night after a day of rain, and more is expected Wednesday. The road crews started putting de-icer on the roads Friday, but the school and business closings started last night. Hubby's boss even sent out a text message telling everyone to work from home today. I think that's a first. Dallas-Fort Worth isn't really prepared to deal with snow, but they do have sand trucks to deal with ice. This is a particularly heavy ice in most of the DFW area though.
You'd think with no chance of leaving the house that I would have a lot more done on the design wall. But yesterday I was trying to FMQ on the February UFO quilt, and found that it wouldn't slide across the MDF table top template at all. So I shelved everything and went out to cut the real table top. I stained it before going to bed and this morning I applied the first coat of Watco. Another coat, let it dry, and then I'll wax it for a super smooth finish.
On the design wall, I have the Irish Chain leaders and enders, The Sweet Sixteen, and The Butterfly.
