For Lillian Hope....

I got a layer cake of Lily and Will by Bunny Hill Designs and used half to make a baby gift for a friend.  I had plans for a really detailed, complicated pattern, but Chelsey showed me this Patchwork Pottery Design and we each made one.  It was easy and fun--- and sometimes easy and fun is good.  It's even great.

We had our first official snow on Sunday evening. We took the pups running in the woods.  The flakes were the size of quarters.  It was way too pretty to stay inside. This snapshot was taken as I pulled out of the driveway on Money morning about 7am. I wanted to remember that sight.

That photo reminds me why I work....and what I have to come home to.....

Gratitudes:

Eric coming home this weekend
Chelsey feeling better from the flu
Our icemaker---remember those old metal ice trays?!?!?

That is such sweet fabric and how nice of you to make such a thoughtful gift from it. The quilt turned out so nice:)

I just love the picture of the buggy. That is the sweetest! We haven't had snow yet, but they keep promising it.

Hope you are all doing well and still enjoying your new job:)

Blessings

We were just talking about those metal trays . . . I kinda miss them *s* But in all honesty, we are not big ice users.

That baby quilt is adorable! It doesn't look all that simple to me - there is integrity there! Your photo of the wagon could be a picture card! Cheers! Evelyn
