Quilt for Bella

I Spy Quilt

any excuse will work to sit on the table

front with embroidery
for 1 year hand and foot prints

pink cats for the backing

Mom put my I Spy quilt top together this past week for Bella. We decided on using white eyelet in front of the pink ruffle to make it a little more girly. Bella was excited for maybe 5 minutes. She picked out her favorites and then tossed it aside and got down her Big Bird quilt from Aunt Zelda. She then snuggled down with him for a minute and then was on her way to something else. Since she started walking there is no slowing our girl down for anything.

First Snow

Our First Snowfall of the New Year
in the Garden

The weathermen hit it right this time around, 1/2"--1" in most areas around us. We backed our cars in the driveway just in case thank goodness. It started snowing about noon yesterday and we had snow showers up till midnight. Temps this morning were in the low 20s with the windchill in the teens. Thank goodness the main roads were cleared once we managed to get to them. What a way to end the work week. Should be back to the 50s by Monday.
