change of plans

Yesterday, it was a beautiful morning...
Big, fat flakes of snow,
gently floating down to the ground.
I was awake early, and I got to see this
spectacular snowfall as the sun rose here in central Ohio...
as I awakened at 5...

I'm not usually that early of an early bird,
but if that wasn't bad enough,
I was up that early...
because of and with
chills and headache...
Thank you very much, Sweetie!
(He brought it home from work, we're thinking.)

So my quiet days between Christmas and New Years Eve
have been spent in the lazy-girl chair, covered in a quilt,
drinking my Airbourne and hot tea.
A total change of plans!
Not much stitching, as planned.
I got a couple more Lucy Boston - Patchwork of the Crosses
blocks bordered with muslin/paper-pieces.

And, I finally got the newest grandson's quilt bound.
I'm so bad -
the quilt was wrapped & gifted 
with the binding only machine sewn,
not flipped to the back and hand-stitched. 
I guess at just a month old
that Sawyer won't remember that
his first Christmas quilt was
un-bound & unlabeled, will he? :)

I'll leave you with a picture of the big brother...
after visiting family left he was told it was nap time...
he grabbed his new quilt and pillow from GrandmaB
and when his head hit the pillow, he was fast asleep:
j.r. - Christmas 2013
A grandbaby fast asleep with a special quilt...
Doesn't that just warm your heart?

Hopefully your days are going as planned,

but if not, that something warms your heart, too.
Wishing you a happy & healthy New Year!
May 2014 have more quilting time (and quilts) for each of us!


  1. Happy New Year dear friend. Hope 2014 will be a creative year. Big hugs.

  2. I wrapped my son's quilt shams, with only one binding done. I finished the binding on that sham before the day was done. I put the label on his quilt the day after Christmas. At least they got done before he flew off to Alaska and would have had to do them himself (he moved there). Hope you feel better soon.

  3. Thanks for the New Year wishes! And great health and creativity to you also! I love your heartwarming picture. Great quilt! and VERY lovely grandbaby! t in TX

  4. Happy 2014 to you also. Just like you, I've been an Indian Giver with quilt gifts :) But at least it's done. LOVE the football quilt too.


Thank you so much for taking the time to visit!
