What to do a rainy day...

First of all I want you to take a look here. Sarah at Prim Treasures has some gorgeous giveaways - DON'T MISS OUT your chance to win!
It was such a nasty weather this morning; heavy, local showers. I intended to do more garden work, but no chance going out without being soaked. Corps de Garde - our mountain view - was covered in fog this morning. I don't mind the rain at all, as long as I know I can get home fast and get on dry clothes. Actually I love the rain here, because rain in the tropics are hot - not cold as in Norway. The locals make me smile when saying; "Dont't get wet in the rain! You'll catch a cold!!!" I don't believe in that! But I must confess there is a chance of catching a cold if you get soaked, don't have dry clothes to put on, and then start freezing. :)

What I have done today is to draw the long-leg star pattern on paper for paper piecing and I've sewn some blocks too. I have a faint idea how to make the quilt, but nothing is decided yet. According to the meteo prediction there will be rain tomorrow too, so it seems like another day of sewing. :))

sounds like a sewing day with the rain outside!

It has been raining here too, Astrid, and we hope the rest of the snow and ice will go away. I think it's going to freeze again tomorrow, so the roads will be terrible icy. The joys of winter, huh?
The long legged stars look great!

Thank you for your comments! I have not forgotten icy roads! Indeed - the joys of winter! It is not raining right now, so there's hope for some garden work! :) Or I'll continue the long-leg stars.

I love visiting your blog. It takes me to the tropic and I pretend I'm there. I love tropical rain as well. I love rain anywhere. We don't get enough of it in Australia. Hugs Nat

The long legged stars look great! I vote that you work on them again when it rains. I love being inside when the weather is rainy-yucky outside, next to the wood stove, drinking hot tea and working on a current hand project, which right now is a sock!
Thanks for stopping by my blog!
