What A Difference A Day Makes...

Especially if it's spent sewing. I had a wonderful day yesterday with the group of local quilters. We did some sewing, some chatting, lots of eating and saw some wonderful quilts in the making. Too bad I forgot my camera! Thanks Lee for including me!

I worked on this flannel lap quilt and actually managed to get the top completed except for one final border.



This picture doesn't do the fabric justice - it's a pretty cream and rose floral flannel and I don't think I'll have any trouble trying to decide how to quilt this - it's just calling out for more flowers on it.











You'll notice I get my ironing board in almost every picture of anything on my design wall. That's because I have so much crap stuff crammed into the smallest room in the house that I can't move it anywhere else to get it out of the picture.

Ben seems to be feeling better but he's still not 100%. It was so cold and windy here today I was afraid he was going to blow away like Toto. He certainly didn't stay outside for long.
Now I'm off to try and get warm.

It's gorgeous! I am especially fond of these colors...

I hope little Ben is feeling better. It can't be any fun to have to go out in the freezing snow to answer "the call."
