It seems like we are getting a snow storm from the west or south nearly every day now. WI spent the weekend in sub-zero temps, but at least we had power! I feel so bad for the folks out east, some of whom have been 11 days without power. Ice isn't nice!! I hope they will soon be warm again, especially with Christmas just a few days away. I managed to finish the binding on this Black and White Polka Dots quilt over the weekend. The piece of stash I found for binding is absolutely perfect!! If you click to enlarge, and pins, don't worry. I'm planning on doing a bit of utility quilting in the polka dotted areas. Basically it's a tied quilt, and will be given away, but I think it needs a bit more, and I love to quilt.
These are the fabrics that followed me home back in mid-November. I was in Menomonie for the optho dr. Before my appointment, Betsy took me to a new quilt shop. It was doing 25% off everything in the store as a opening promotion. The red and batik on on the right are half yard pieces, and the green and cream are quarter yards for my Civil War quilt. It's not that I really needed more new fabric, but these 4 pieces and a package of powdered chalk were all I bought...moderation, right?? *VBS*
In the Holly Jolly Dept. we have pictures of Baby L at 9 months. I must say that DD#2 has been wonderful about sending pictures of him each month. I haven't see him since my birthday in Oct. but he will be coming for Christmas Day.
He is definitely turning into a little boy and leaving the baby looks behind. He's walking a few steps now, but can crawl like greased lightening!! After a few faltering steps, he just drops to the floor and crawls...LOL I'm so very anxious to see him again. He's such a happy, smiley baby.
Ideas for next Christmas
