and here's a little 'gem' to get us started *VBS* A Hudson Quilt Show quilt..first today!! Apparently this one won a prize...I hadn't noticed until I downloaded the picture. This is a Carpenter's Wheel block. The pattern was featured last spring('06) in an issue of American Patchwork and Quilting. The reason I know is that Betsy chose it to make into a quilt for her Mom. Mom wanted it in pinks and greens to match the bedroom. Betsy is DEFINITELY NOT a 'pink and green' person...LOL, but she made it, and did it beautifully. Mom loved it and the wall hanging to match.In the magazine, I believe it's called "Buggy Wheels". Check your spring issue. And then, what to my wondering eyes should appear.....
..this a.m. as I sewed at the dining room table??? Snow!! Big fluffy flakes. I ran for the camera as it was soooo pretty and unexpected *S*
But, like magic...it was hard to capture on film(unless you have a better camera or more snow!)...maybe you can see those flakes scurrying past. Before it was done, the ground was white and we had maybe a half inch in all. I scruffed through it on my way to the mail box, and gave some thought to buying some winter boots this year. Every year I give it some thought...still don't have the boots tho...*VBS*
I've been busy...have made up a dozen burp cloths for the new grandchild that Betsy and DH are expecting in time for Thanksgiving. AND...I managed to whip up a Sponge Bob pillowcase for the next-to-youngest DGS..he adores Sponge Bob and his pineapple house under the sea. With a little luck I might get to see the boys this weekend...haven't seen them since my birthday dinner back in early Oct. Remember the little scowling boy??? Yup, LOL, that's the one!
