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...
YES, FIVE A.M.!!
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|
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!
