It has been crazy around here.  We made our last trip to Minnesota for our stuff, over the weekend, 800 miles one way.  Got back at 10:30 at night Sunday.  Back to work Monday morning, and then it was Thanksgiving and the Christmas walk with the parade of lights, and back to work.

I'm sick today, stupid cold.

Here is a sunset picture taken somewhere in North Dakota on I90.  We were so close to home we could taste it!

See you soon!

The Weekend Blogger......

Have I become a weekend blogger?  Is that what my world has come to?  Why yes, dear, yes it has.  Poop!  Poop, I say, Poop!

Oh, hello!

Yes I am putting up a post.  I should be sleeping since I will have to get up at 3am tomorrow morning.  It is now 9:56pm here.  Instead, here I am blogging, feeling guilty for somehow turning into the weekend blogger. 

There has just been so much going on and between all the activity and my falling asleep on the couch at about 9:30pm anymore, well, time flies.

The kitten is getting large.

She's still cute as a button.  Now she has her preteen attitude and she's thinning out.

This is one of her favorite spots, the green blanket on the back of the couch.  (That's fabric and batting on the end table behind her!)

Have a good one!

A Quicky...

A QUILTING quicky that is.

I made this quilt for a gal in our office who just had a little baby boy about 3 months ago. 

I gave this to her about three weeks ago.

I know, I'm so far behind.

I quilted it on my machine.  The first time I've done that really.  Not the greatest job in the world, but OK.

You can't see it, but I quilted the words "Choo Choo" all in the border.  I love striped binding cut on the byass.

Flannel backing of course for this winter.  Liz said she is going to use it in his crib.

This was fun and easy.  Just a cute, fun pattern that I threw a border on.

As my daughter would say: "Easy peasy, Mac and cheesy!"
