are just a couple of the things that appear when the mercury drops to the bottom of the thermometer!! We also deal with the very real 'black ice' that car exhaust causes on ramps and bridges. The exhaust also 'hangs' in the air making for limited visibility. I don't feel alone in the 'weather extremes'....seems like there is plenty to go around. So how to keep busy??? No problem...sew, sew, sew and sort, sort, sort! That's what I've been doing almost non-stop since I was here last Thursday *VBS* BUT...my camera batteries are charging, so no quilt top pics today.I don't think I've ever posted a picture of DD#2,she's my 'missing in action' child. The 'difficult' one, the one who blames me for most anything that is wrong in her life at any given moment. DD#1 had lunch with her on New Years Eve,as both of them were off work that day. As you can see DD#2 is expecting her first child.
The babe is due at the end of February, and will be my 12th grandchild. Do any of you want to guess what it will be....LOL Yup, another little boy *VBS* He will bring the grandson count to 10! She finally called me the Sunday before Christmas, the day our get together didn't happen. I think it might be the start of something nice....at least I hope so. She answered my question about whether or not she wanted a quilt from Grandma, and she does *VBS* I have most of the top together the past few days. Will show you when I have all the rows sewn. And burp clothes from flannel, she would like those also. DD#1 says her sister really is BIG for where she is at in the expecting. We hope it's NOT twins! Not sure she could handle that.
And I've been selected or nominated by several of you for this award *VBS* I'm so very touched that you find something here that brightens your day, or gets you thinking or remembering, or that inspires you *VBS* Thank each one of you from the bottom of my heart.
I know I'm suppose to select 10 of you and visit your blog and let you know, but what I'm going to do instead is nominate ALL of YOU!! No one is left out! Please feel free to right click on the logo and post it proudly *VBS*
P.S. Someone new to blog-speak wants to know about those *VBS*....it means *very big smile*
P.S.#2 thamks for all the great suggestions about using those HST's with the 4 patches. I'm going to try a couple of those lay-outs and see what I think *VBS*
