Snowmen


My collection of snowmen sitting in the corner of the kitchen. We have no snow left outside, so had to have them inside. vbg
IMHO, Beta Blogger is getting to be a bigger PITA than it ever was. I'm sure they thought they were improving things, but if it ain't broke, don't fix it! (Uploading this picture took two tries).
Anyway -- am as ready for Christmas as I'll ever be -- all sewing projects done and wrapped. So, I've been sewing for fun the past couple of days. Put together the blocks for a top today, just need to do the borders. It's called "Baby Rails with Attitude" from the November 2006 issue of Quilter magazine. I used the 30's fat quarters I bought at our guild quilt show and so far really like the quilt. I'll try to post a picture after I get the borders on.
I'll be babysitting AJ the day after Christmas, so won't be around much. Just want to wish my blogger friends a Merry Christmas and a Healthy New Year (I'll be back with my New Year's resolutions next week!)
Gratitudes:
Peace and quiet at home this week
Christmas cards with yearly updates on friends
Cool, clear forecast for driving on Christmas

I hope your holidays are truly special. I'm getting some 1930's prints for quilting for my new year's resolution. A break away from country prints...
