Today is day 2 of no schools. Sunday brought 5 inches of snow on top of rain and sleet. The city was a little slow in taking care of the streets and most of the streets were like driving on a ice rink.

How was your Thanksgiving?
I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. We did. This year our son and Daughter in Law hosted the day. They smoked a ham and baked a turkey. The day was beautiful and was truly a great day.

Holidays this year
How many of us just go thru the years enjoying the Holiday season (Thanksgiving, Christmas, Holidays you celebrate and New Years) knowing what why we celebrate, but sometimes some hit harder.

Today my littlest granddaughter and I made Snowmen ornaments. She got so wrapped up in doing this that we made 14 of them. After this we got paper, scissors, and glue sticks out. She is conquering how to use scissors. A great fun day.

First appliqued block
I am attempting my first needle turned applique quilt. I love the southwest colors scheme and have had these colors in my home. While on our vacation to the SW I fell in love with the pattern Quail Trail by Adriane Walsh. I didn’t like a few things so I changed them. My background isContinue reading “First appliqued block”
Trying hand Applique
I have never made a whole quilt with hand applique on it. I grew up doing embroidery, cross stitch, and some applique on my kids clothes. While on vacation I fell in love with the pattern Quail trail and purchased. I think it was the border and colors more than anything sucked me in. I didn’tContinue reading “Trying hand Applique”
