Monday, January 01, 2007

It’s 7:00 am on the first day of 2007. I ‘m up and the rest of the house is quiet. Cheerios complete, I’m heading downstairs to the sewing room. Twenty kids last night.. Everyone made it home. The weather was threatening snow and ice, but it remained warm enough for fog and rain.

I’ve got to go in to work for a couple of hours just as mental preparation for the inventory tomorrow. No complaints, it’ll be quiet and I can get a lot done.

Don’s had a rough few days. I’ve just been giving him space. That about all I can do.


This is a picture on Christmas Day. I’ll keep my sled out until March- at least. I put away the Christmas quilts and brought out January's. I completed this quilt the first week in May of 2006. You can't exactly put a snowman quilt out in May, so this is it's first appearance on the quilt rack. It's like finding a new friend. Kind of makes you feel good... Swapping quilts around does that.

I hope everyone brings in 2007 healthy, safe and happy.

the quilt is great - I have a whole bunch of snow people that I will put out today as I put away the Christmas stuff. Even though I can live without snow on the roads, I do like the idea of it
Happy New Year

I love your snowman quilt! I leave out the quilts that I hung in December well into January. I never thought of having a separate group for January. I may re-examine what I am doing. I love the idea of changing quilts with the seasons too.

Your outdoor decorations have been delightful to see. You should use the photographs for Christmas cards. Thank you for sharing them.

So happy to hear the new year rang in safely for you and all the young'uns, too *s* If I had a terrific looking sled, I would leave it out to admire for a long time.

Your sled looks so old-timey and neat with it's wreath. I have a sled I could put out like that, but it loses something when there isn't every any snow! I love your snowman quilt - I'd forgotten all about it. How wonderful to have this ready to be displayed right now.

That snowman quilt should make you smile every time you see it! So cute.

Happy New Year.

We went walking in the snow yesterday and today - it's a new experience for me but we're loving walking everywhere and not needing to get in the car.

Happy New Year. I guess taking the tree down would be made easier by having quilts that you put up in January. I bet it was a really treat to put that pretty quilt up.
