Crazy 9 Patch and First Snow

It was so wonderful to wake up to the first snow of the season and the first snow in our new house this morning.
I couldn't keep the dogs inside.

Especially Bella, she is a true outdoors girl.

After I made the kids waffles, put all of the candles in my windows, exercised, ran a 20 minute errand and put dinner in the crockpot, I promised myself that I would make my crazy 9 patches for the ORB quilt along #4. Here are a couple of them. I like them, but I don't know if I love them. I should have put my math skills to work here and considered the multiples of three and been more selective with where I placed my colors, but I was not in that mode at the time.

But they are done and I learned a few things from putting them together. They are nice, the pictures don't do them justice. Dinner is also done, and the wood stack has been replenished by 2 of my very favorite men.
So it's time for a little catch up with the family around the dinner table, a fire and maybe a Christmas movie.
