First Block Done

I did manage to work on Piper's quilt one night and got the first block done.

This is the main block in the quilt.  Piper says she loves it.

It was -25 yesterday morning not accounting  for wind chill. Brrrrrr...hasn't  been that cold here for a while.

We have a ton of snow also.

This is looking off the deck to our back yard.  There is quite a bit less snow in the back yard because it is more sheltered there.

I plan on working  on the Dinasour quilt today, but I do have this obstacle....

Next Saturday is quilt day with the girls, so if I don't get far there is always next weekend!

Happy sewing, or relaxing, whatever  you decide to do today....

Post Holiday Relief Syndrome

So the holidays are over and it's back to the grind.  The tree is down and gone.  The holiday decorations are packed up and waiting for the next year.  It seems like there is an empty hole where the tree was, and a deep sigh resonates throughout.

Piper likes to help her Dad bake.  She is mixing the apples for an apple pie here.

Here she is with her Dad and the pies.  We also made a cinnamon sugar roll with the left over dough.

So here is a finished picture of Grandma Bonnie's quilt.  She loves it.  Fit nicely on her bed.

Here is a sneak peek of the next quilt on the machine.

Piper's quilt for her big girl bed.  She picked all of the fabrics.  The only 3 year old I know who knows more Dinasour names than the volunteers at the Dinasour  museum.  She actually corrected one of them when she used the wrong name.

So here is to destressing  and jumping back into the humdrum of every day life.  Our company party is this Saturday and next weekend is a sewing day with the girls.

Just keeps snowing here.  Will have to post a picture  of my buried yard.  I will have to get up early to dig out....
