YAY for results! Roll Tide

 So the Tide took the National Championship last night in a really good game. DH was happy as a clam. Hootin and hollering. I had to remind him Little Bit was sleeping. DH had his friend come over and watch most of the game so it was nice for everyone.

 I got all the pieces to Block one prepped and laid out. I know have to decide what thread to sew down with. I have this clear stuff but I can't even remember what brand etc. I'm worried that it will eventually become brittle but matching the fabrics to cotton/silk thread would be quite hard, but I'd only need about 4 colours for the whole quilt. What do you all think? or y'all as DH would say.

This is the monofilament or whatever thread.

  And this is what I can look out and see.

Lots and lots of snow. We got another 4 or 5 inches last night. I'm high enough up, 4th floor, that when I look out I see over the parking lot, but not so high that I'm over the trees. So it really is a nice view most of the time. 

 As happy as DH was last night he is unhappy this morning. We think he may have gotten food poisoning from the KFC he picked up last night as a special treat for everyone but me, I'm celiac. Apparently he called in at 4 am to tell work he wasn't going to be in. SO hopefully he gets better soon, because he is one pitiful baby bear when he's sick.

Poor DH, hope he gets better real fast! I love what you're doing with Chateau Duma. And your Le Jardin BOM, Oh My! what loveliness :^)

Hope your husband is feeling better. The snow is beautiful! We enjoyed the game last glad our team won. Here in Alabama football is huge! Love your quilt ... just lovely.

The BOM is beautiful, so feminine. This is going to be a lot of work. It's worth matching the threads. Hope the hubby is feeling betting.

Are you doing the applique by hand? I have never used the monofilament thread for applique. I'm not much help, am I? Hope DH is feeling better soon!
