Finishing Touches...


The routine is pretty much the same--- Work all day, Come home to a few chores, Run my pups through the woods, Supper, Exhale to my sewing or a good book.  The Quilt is progressing.  You can see what the corner blocks will look like in the snapshot.

I tucked away all the snowman quilts, dishes, and winter decorations last night event though we just got a fresh 6 inches of the whote stuff Wednesday.  Thursday and today it's supposed to be in the 40's.  AMAZING how warm that feels after a cold winter.

Chelsey's coming home for the weekend--- We'll have fun....I'm journalling a quilt so I need to scrapbook the pieces ... She's great at that.

Spring fever is setting in. Something to hope for. I tried to pick out my favorite season-- there are great quilts for all of them..

Gratitudes:
Longer days-- time change on the way.
Seed catalogs in the mail
Handful of DMC embroidery Thread

Oh that's such a great quilt! I can't wait to see it all finished. So pretty.

So nice that your daughter can come home for a visit. That will be nice:)

We only got a dusting around here with maybe an inch in spots, but it's bitter cold and very windy.

I am really looking forward to spring now :)

Hi, Found you after a long hiatus. We were "blog friends" some long time ago, when I had a blog called Simply Quilted, and I think you won one of my giveaways and I sent you a box........anyway, we lost touch, and I am still blogging only on a new / different one these days. I saw your link on a blog and am paying a visit. I hope all is well.

"journaling a quilt" - that sounds really interesting . . . how does it work? What do you do?

And have a great weekend with Chelsey!

I'm sewing today while the kids help sort out the issue with my computer and uploading pictures. Block #1 should be finished this weekend (I hope).

Would love to know what you like to read when you relax. I'm always interested in a good read.
