I'm a middle aged mother and grandmother, I want to make use of every day and learn something new each and every day! Life is precious! I started dabbling at quilting but never really completed one until after I had a brain tumour removed and needed a project to keep my mind busy!
I've been awhile getting the snow removed from the two decks and from in front of the garage! I'm done for the day. My house is for sale with a realtor because I want to move to town. I sometimes am torn whether to move or not...well ask me now how I feel about that! Each storm this winter I would dread going out to clear the snow, but I would also give thanks that I'm here this winter to do so. I would thank God, grab the shovel and get to work...BUT if you're reading this God, ENOUGH already!!
When I was vacationing last year my daughter took me to a quilt store called "The Cherry Pit" in Sevierville, TN. It's a lovely shop, very quaint and the owner, Jane is very helpful. The quilting displayed throughout the store was amazing! My daughter loved this pattern, I purchased the entire BOM so I could make it for her. It looks to me like a real challenge but I'm going to attempt making it! It's called "Joys of Winter" by Lynda Howell.
It's sunny!! On the down side of things, we have a lot of snow and it's COLD! Both decks had snow half way up the doors and I had to shovel to get out. The snow has drifted half way up the sash on my front window. Our winter started out so mild but February has made up for the lack of snow in January. I sure hope this is the last major storm.
I found the pattern for a schnauzer online and decided to make my nephew a quilt. I added a few facial expressions. It's youth bed size and should last him awhile, he is only one year old. It's the first quilt that I finished. Now to my other unfinished projects!
